We are Kolkata Society for Cultural Heritage, working to improve the lives of rural people in West Bengal. We are working to foster the socio-economical structures by using different livelihood generating methods. We have already done several capacity-building activities with the self-help group run by local women and also we have established many rural startups. In addition, our core team members are now focusing on the disaster management plan and restore biodiversity in the areas of Sundarbans. We have experience to work at forest fringe villages in Sundarbans since 2016.
This year to restore the biosphere of Sundarbans we shaped 14 community led nurseries to cultivate 4,00,000 mangrove saplings at Hingalgunj and Gosaba block under the brand name of “The Community Forest” involving local community and underprivileged women from Self Help Groups.
