BSSK was founded in 1978 with the guidance and active assistance from Child in Need Institute (CINI). BSSK's initial thrust was on mother and child health and nutritional support for under nourished children living in the remotest parts of Sundarbans. The project area of BSSK falls within the Sundarbans delta, the world's largest deltaic mangrove habitat, also a UNESCO world heritage site.
BSSK is a non-government organization. Its tenets are secular, non-political, non-profit making and social welfare. The organization gives utmost importance to welfare of women, children, youth and vulnerable sections to establish their rights and empowerment process. Our main emphasis is on community health, education, income generation and community development.
The broad objective of BSSK is to ensure holistic sustainable development of the community with emphasis on distressed women and children in the Sundarbans region of West Bengal.
