Progress: In the year 2004, Raniganj Panchayat Samity requested us to take over the charge of Rural Sanitary Mart. Then we submitted the proposal to Raniganj Panchayat Samity with the recommendation of UNICEF and Burdwan Zilla parishad. After approval of the project we started working at Raniganj Block and started construction of household latrine. With an intensive IEC Program, we collected orders from the beneficiaries from 6 groups. After 3 years, Burdwan Zilla Parishad sanctioned 36 toilets for the Block1 in 6 high schools, 90 toilets at 45 Primary schools, 30 toilets at 14 SSK and 1 MSK, 12 toilets at 6 Junior High schools, 120 toilets for the whole Block out of 146 ICDS centers. 

Since 2005, we have constructed 8221 household latrines and still now are working in the field of Swachh Bharat Aviyan through construction of Household latrines till now. 

SHG Promotion: We have promoted SHGs with the approval of DRDC, Burdwan as a SHG promoting agency. Upto 2014, we have promoted 568 SHGs which are all women centered. Also arranged Basic organization Training (BOT), Bookkeeping Training, Kitchen Garden, Tailoring, Jute Bag making, Wool knitting, Kantha Stitch training, etc. for all SHG members. Most of the SHG members are well established today.

Other Programs: We have 2 ambulances as PPP Model which were sanctioned by Burdwan Zilla Parishad Swastha Sthayi Samity, Health and Family Welfare Department of West bengal. Among these 2 ambulances, one was allotted to Bahadurpur B.P.H.C. and the other was allotted to Akalpur B.P.H.C.
