About the NGO
The mission of the organisation is to look after destitute orphan children, poor school going children, and isolated elderly persons and to empower women by upgrading their socio-economic status.
A few local school teachers took the initiative to set up a platform where they could render help to poor and needy people in distress; thus Bani Mandir was established in 1945 August.
69-year-old Somendra Nath Mandal graduated from Calcutta University and has 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 efforts. He believes that service to the poor and helpless is the service to the nation.
Bani Mandir focuses on developing the potential of women and girls to drive long lasting equitable changes. They emphasize on promoting quality healthcare, inclusive education, gender equitable and sustainable livelihood opportunities, disaster relief and preparedness.
Their efforts are focused on fighting against underlying causes of poverty and ensuring a life of dignity for all women and girls from marginalized and vulnerable communities, especially among Dalits and Adivasis. Bani Mandir also works with the elderly by providing them nutritional support because they are largely ignored by their families.
In 2016, NGO was awarded the Award of project ASTITVA by the Helpage India Significant achievement in the services to the elderly persons.
