Our mission is to take up maintenance and up-keep of destitute orphan children and poor school going children,isolated elderly persons and woman empowrment by upgrading their Socio-economic status and controlling water borne diseases.
A few local school teachers took the initiative to set up a platform where they could render help to the poor and most needy persons in distress; thus Bani Mandir was established in 1945 August.
68-year old Somendra Nath Mandal graduated from Calcutta University and is working for the poor since 1965. He became General Secretary in 1973. Almost all the developmental work done by Bani Mandir is in remote villages of West Bengal and through his own efforts. Several expert and financial resources were managed by his personal charisma. Service to the poor and helpless is the service to the nation he believes.

All his family members worked hard to scratch out a living including his children who could not go to school. In 2006, Bani Mandir enrolled his youngest daughter who was about 5 years old in school. The same year, Ashok was given a cycle rickshaw through the Bani Mandir Income generation programme. Ashok started earning Rs.100 per day. In due course he started trading in Rice and food grains, where all the other members of his family helped. Now the family is better off, all the children are in school and look forward to a bright future.
