About the NGO
Working with the marginalised communities in Kolkata, apart from educational programmes they conduct environmental and health awareness programmes, prevent the trafficking of girls and also empower vulnerable women of the community through skill development.
One recent example of their programmes is a drive to strengthen the neighbourhood around the Scottish cemetery in the heart South Kolkata. In collaboration with the municipal authorities, it was a part of a larger project to restore the monument, maintain a green, clean and safe locality and simultaneously create a public space for reuse.
The drive primarily involved women and children, following which regular community awareness programmes are conducted on health, education, women empowerment and sustainability at the cemetery.
It is this kind of active participation by local communities most affected by various social problems, that is at the core of Banipur Sahayog’s work - and should be supported.
