‘Amader Arpan’ is a philanthropic organization. It all began when a few young people with the desire of stretching out to the underprivileged students teamed up. They were greatly perturbed by the fact that every year many brilliant students are being forced to drop out of their schools and colleges and are made to think otherwise because of poverty. Many dreams are shattered before they are realized.
As time went on, many others with same ideology teamed up as volunteers and at present they stand as a unit of more than 60 (mostly young) men and women, coming from various fields like engineering and consultancy, research, IT etc..
Amader Arpan's primary focus has been on imparting education to the poor and deprived section of society.
Right from the very beginning, the Organization had the privilege of having the blessings and guidence of the monks of Ramakrishna Mission. They inspired each member with the phylosophies of Swami Vivekananda:
"God is present in every 'Jiva'; there is no other God besides that. One who serves 'Jiva' serves God".
We also had the opportunity of working very closely with other philanthropic organizations like, MHE (Mission for Human Excellence). We have gained invaluable experiences by working very closely with them by exploring the tribal villages of West Bengal. We have experienced the ways and means of reaching out to people in hunger in the poverty stricken, remotest of areas of West Bengal and Jharkhand and have got a deep insight into the lives of people who dwell in unfriendly environment.
