About The Organisation

Baikunthapur Sishu Seva Kendra, a not-for profit organization was founded in 1978 to address the community needs of coping up with the natural disasters as well as accessing basic minimum health care support. Being located at the extreme last point of Maipith, Baikunthapur in Sunderbans region, the people had no access to health services and government health centres were situated at a distant location. The Founder of BSSK Late Panchugopal Mondal was trying to find out some ways to support the communities. At such point of time, he came in contact with the Founder of Child in Need Institute (CINI), Dr. Samir Narayan Chaudhuri and urged him to extend some support for the communities in Maipith area.
It was in 1978, BSSK was registered under the West Bengal Societies Registration Act. CINI as mother organization started provisioning some support to BSSK to address maternal and child health & nutrition in the remotest part of Sunderbans. 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.
