Bay Area Prabasi is excited to launch a new philanthropic project,


to celebrate the golden jubilee of the Prabasi Durga Puja. During the Subarna Jayanti, we bring ourselves to cleanse our soul and renew our focus on the eternal journey in search of self-power, positivity, and prosperity that the celebration symbolizes. For a large section of rural India, however, prosperity is still a far cry. Extreme poverty and severe lack of opportunities remain barriers to many in obtaining basic education and vocational skills. Prabasi’s philanthropic initiative this year is to support the project “Sayambharataa” that targets a large tribal population in the Birbhum district of West Bengal and help remove such barriers. 

Project “Sayambharataa” Highlights

Rural Birbhum is predominantly tribal. A typical household makes $40 a month and the tribal children have practically no access to basic education and vocational training opportunities. Prabasi is partnering with an NGO, “Sayambharataa” – a highly dedicated team of accomplished leaders. Team Sayambharataa, has been offering beyond-school education and imparting an array of vocational training to the children of rural Birbhum, since 2014. The Team with a commendable track record of success, so far, has been operating in three centers in Birbhum district, covering 2000 school children from 20 villages. Notable successes include students’ placement in higher education and mainstream careers, women’s empowerment through skilled-job placements

To increase its outreach and effectiveness, Team Sayambharataa is seeking funding support to build a distant-learning, technology-enhanced center, and its operation for the next five years. Your support will help the children of these impoverished communities in choosing appropriate career paths and a path to self-reliance, instead of sinking into the never-ending quagmire of social and economic isolation
