About Us

SARANI, a Non Governmental Organization, was conceived in 1973 with a view to undertake welfare programs for women and children in the socially and economically marginalized sectors of the populace in Bengal. With its base in Kolkata, SARANI over more than four decades has thus been able to bring smiles to many faces. An organization mainly comprised of volunteers, SARANI has become a platform of philanthropists from several walks of life with welfare as its sole motive.


The main focus of SARANI in the past decades has been education and extending fiscal help to cancer affected patients. Women Empowerment at the grass root level has also been one of the key areas where SARANI works diligently. In remote areas of rural Bengal, SARANI is active in holding medical camps, especially eye check up camps and free medicine distribution centers. Fighting the menace of Drugs is also a major agenda of this Society. Rehabilitation camps and counseling are organized at regular intervals.

Long time ago in 1973 Dr. Krishna Pada Sarkar dreamt of an ever lasting dream, Being a doctor who began his professional carrier in British Indian army during the 2nd world war, he was a broad hearted person who always fell for underprivileged people. His wish was to stand by the side of these people, to fulfill his dream he established Sarani, a registered social organization on 1973.

We believe that Sarani is a motivation. It is a journey which began 44 years back and the path was laid out in front of us late Dr. K.P. Sarkar.
