Our Story

Inspired by the Gandhian ideals of socio-economic change, our founders, a group of like-minded professionals who shared a common dream of implementing a people-centric model of development to benefit the poorest of the poor, set up Sukalyan Welfare Society on 2nd October, 2002 as a non-profit organization at a small village in West Bengal later registered in Kolkata under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act, 1961 on 8th March, 2005 with a group of 7 governing body members and 12 general members belonging from different walks of life.

Driven by the values Seva, Sadhana and Kranti, Sukalyan strives to ensure last-mile delivery of key services to the most undeserved and poorest of the poor communities in West Bengal and several other states. In formulating its core programme areas and projects in each of these areas, the principal objective of Sukalyan is to select those communities that are the least reached by the government and other mainstream development agencies.

At present Sukalyan reaches the unreached through well- planned and comprehensive programmes under four broad programmatic areas that are Sustainable Livelihoods, Financial Literacy & Inclusion, Civil Society empowerment, Early Childhood Care & Education and CSO Empowerment which is leading to improvement of lives or empowering lives

As an organisation Sukalyan reached to 20+ Districts across four States in Eastern and North Eastern India and impacted more than 0.2 million lives and it is getting bigger and better day by day. What keeps us going is the growing belief that people have put in us — be it our targeted beneficiaries or those who support us through funds, sharing knowledge, sharing our initiatives and foremost sharing our thoughts. However, last couple of years we have been growing as fast as light reaches us during the thunderstorm (which is defined at our logo) but it’s the spirit of the Sukalyan family that supports us. Sukalyan is not driven by the passion of just few change makers but the passion, values and ethos that each one of us holds.
