Naba Prantik ( A Social Organisation) is an orphanage located in the village of Madhuban, 28 Card Colony (Near Rosevelly Park), P.O- Vibaknagar, P.S- Amtali, Agartala, Tripura. It was established in 2007.
Our journey started with a single destitute child whom we found by the roadside. \ With time the number of children grew and we were bound to leave our house and stay in the ashram. Our fellowmen in the village helped us to their very extent to run the orphanage and I had sold off my entire property and belongings for this singular goal and the mission of my life; to give these homeless, parentless children a place to call home. But with the number of new members our family has started growing exponentially and a situation came where we were no longer able to bear this cross anymore. Soon, even after selling some of his property, he was forced to beg from the people of nearby villages. Many of his benefactors were farmers, who themselves were poor. They still helped me to their fullest capabilities. In 2008, I said in a newspaper article how there were 136 families in his and 8 other villages near his village. He used to keep earthen pots by the doors of every house each morning. All he asked for was a few handfuls of rice for his children. Meanwhile an article was published in Bengali newspaper "Ajker Fariad" (Dated:- ) and being informed about our situation a number of good Samaritans stepped in and their philanthropic endeavors and donations saved us for the time being.
However our family is still growing with a staggering number of 62 children with 37 boys and 24 girls presently. The ashram has helped improve the lives of all the villagers and many other village children by establishing a school, improving the infrastructure of the village and arranging for regular medical check-up facilities, among others. The orphans of the ashram attend regular school, and they also continue with higher education. They are also given training for fine arts, yoga, Tailoring and computers so that they can be vocationally independent later in their lives. We express ourdeep sense of gratitude to all those contributors and sympathizers who by their donations help us to run the Anath Ashram smoothly. As you are aware that due to rise in prices of every goods and also due to increase in the number of orphan children, the expenses are rising for almost on every item every month. With the result shopkeepers /vendors are insisting for regular payment every month or else at times they are stopping our supply of food stuff etc. Shopkeepers /suppliers are insisting for regular payment every month which we are unable to make. Keeping in view the above constrain, we have been advised by some kind donors to evolve a scheme of sponsorships of the children.
Under this scheme if the donor who wishes to sponsor one or two children will make the contribution of equivalent amount monthly on regular basis. To carry out these activities, the Ashram requires a lot of financial aid. We would be grateful if you extend your patronage.
Therefore it is our earnest request to have a visit to our children Homes with your family or friends and wish the children of the Homes.
