Through this programme of Education and Environment Insurance, JGVK is trying to reduce the rate of dropout in the Sundarban area. This approach helps the economically poor students to continue with their studies and later on pursue higher studies with their savings. The students will not have to depend on their poor parents for pursuing their studies. On the other hand, the programme gives equal importance in protection of the environment by adopting several activities like plantation, distribution of saplings, playing drama on environment related issues for awareness generation, etc.
