Our story so far

About Us

 

Anahat is an youth led NGO. Our team consists of urban planner, management degree holders, social workers and interns. We work through various strata of the society and help create awareness in various social issues. We have grown through the years in both volume and experience. Our beneficiaries mainly include underprivileged schools, rural areas and urban slums. We have tried to safeguard our environment for women and children and society at large in a sustainable manner. Though we have started from Kolkata, we have tried to spread in other districts of West Bengal like South 24 parganas, North 24 parganas, Nadia, Darjeeling, Alipurduar, Murshidabad Howrah & Hooghly. We have also started taking our sessions in Odisha and Bihar.
