About Us

 

“The earth, the air, the land and the water are not am inheritance from our fore fathers but on loan from our children. So we have to handover to them at least as it was handed over to us.”                                                                                                                                                                 …… Mahatma Gandhi

Initially organisation took ventures to animate students of State Schools & Kendriya Vidyalayas (under the project EAS and ‘GREEN MISSION’). As Society’s mission is to instil a connection and commitment to the environment in people of all communities through animated students – who shall understand that development should be sustainable for the survival of nature - & play a critical role in making this World a better place to live in. In addition to that Aranyaj Society started an education cum vocational course and cultural training centre at a slum of Kolkata to extend education, nutrition, health services and healthy culture among the slum dwellers. In the year 2009 Society conducted a Mass Awareness Camp in Alipore Zoological Garden, Kolkata; where ~ 2000 students & ~ 200 teachers participated under the guidance of 10 Environmental campaigners. This sensitization camp helped ~ 20,00,000 zoo visitors to realize the objective of zoo as well as what to do & what not. Our Hon’ble C.M. Smt. Mamata Banerjee appreciated the endeavor. From the same year, the society is taking the school students of Kendriya Vidyalaya for Eco- Education program in different forest area of Bengal with the collaboration of Dept. of Forest, Govt. of West Bengal. During this journey we realized the crisis in health sector among the forest villagers of Sundarban. Thus we took initiative to start Health Intervention and awareness program there.

We are grateful to Oil India Limited, Indian Oil Corporation Limited and ONGC (Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Limited) for giving us financial assistance for arranging Health camps in Sundarban. We arranged free health check-up, medicine distribution, eye check-up with spectacle distribution followed by awareness camp, road show & seminar in different schools/locality/islands among the students or forest villagers. As cost of awareness is negligible compare to intervention, in viewing that each health intervention programme was coupled with relevant seminars.

We believe that women empowerment is essential for the growing society to ensure sustainable development of the country. It is all about to strengthening the social and economic powers of women. So we set up a vocational training and skill development centre at Ashok Nagar Matrisadan Hospital, Dumdum and Sundarban.

In India 84% of female group is not adopting hygienic method during menstruation periods mainly due to affordability, they are not using napkins. Instead they are using and reusing cloth. It had been found that most of the time those soiled clothes are not cleaned properly and for reusing it, a number of women are suffering from gynaecological ailments and even cervical cancer. Unfortunately 34% girl child doesn’t go to school during their periods, they can’t access sanitary pads. In addition to that, near 70% of reproductive diseases are caused by poor menstrual hygiene. In viewing that we are distributing sanitary napkin in free of cost through PADBANK among the adolescent girls and women and continuing KAP (Knowledge-Attitude-Practice) & MHM (Menstrual Hygiene Management) programme so that underprivileged women can also lead a dignified and hygienic periods which they deserve.

 We take an initiative to build a number of Sanitary Napkin Manufacturing and distribution units in different slums as well as rural Bengal. We make the women financially independent and increases accessibility to pads which helps them break the silence surrounding menstruation through a shared sense of social and economic empowerment.

Although ‘Cleanliness’ is very important component of our Green Education Programme, from 2014 we are organizing more seminars and field activity on ‘SWACHH BHARAT MISSION’ and “Beti Bachao Beti Parao” – a mark of respect to the dream project of our Hon’ble P.M.

From the year 2015, we are conducting Seminar on ‘SAVE OUR SUNDARBAN’ to bring forward the socio-economic-environmental crisis of world’s most beautiful mangrove delta. The effort had been appreciated by our Hon’ble Speaker of Parliament Smt. Sumitra Mahajanji, Hon’ble Governor Shri Keshari Nath Tripathi, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, Hon’ble Minister of State (IC).Petroleum and Natural GAS, Govt. of India, former Minister of State (Independent Charge), Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Late Shri Anil Madhav Dave, & other dignitaries.
