Organization > History

The founders of the Trust, Barka and Manjusree Saren started their mission in Mouldanga village in a mud house with three small little tribal girls in 1993. The Trust is named after Binapani Devi, Manjusree’s mother, who always encouraged her daughter and Barka for helping the poor and hapless children. Gouri Qanungo, one of the founder trustees rendered valuable services during the formative years of the Trust. Mouldanga village is quite close to Santiniketan and nearly 160 kms. fromKolkata. Binapani Ashram is a registered Public Charitable Trust, established for educational, cultural and medical support for the poor Santhal tribal school going girls and children from other backward communities. The institution runs on public donations, sponsorships and support from some business houses.

At present there are  resident school going first generation learners from poor tribal and backward families. They are all eager to learn but need your support to enter the school gate. Along with formal schooling the girls are made socially responsible for hygienic and green environmental condition. Besides, they are trained in sartorial art, horticultural practices, knitting, food preservation and computer applications. The first batch of girls who came to this institution in 1993 is now walking in the corridors of higher education in the city based colleges and universities. This has been made possible by the selfless support and contributions we received from donors and sponsors and a few business houses. Perhaps you also desire to light up the lives of some of these helpless children.
