Volunteering Help

We are doing grass root level work at a rural and distant area. We are based out of an area where we lack resource and people. We also face technology and infrastructure challenges.

Hence we request for volunteers to join SRKS in the field of teaching, medical consulting, vocational training, web designers, writers, content editors, fund raising, etc.

We would be thankful to you if you are interested, please send an email to contactus@srks.org mentioning your preference area. We would love to contact you.

Non-Monetary Help

We are in dire need of stationery items, school uniforms, toiletries, groceries, woollen clothes, utensils and blankets. It would be highly appreciated if you can help us with these items.

If you are interested in donating, please send an email to contactus@srks.org

Monetary Help

Finance is the major hurdle. With this come, impediment of establishing infrastructure to attune the work with desired mission. So far the activities of the Ashram survives on the staggered donations of benevolent people and others. No major sustained flow of income remains for which no project could be visualized.

In fact, there was no inspired donor initially. Shri Biswas, the present Secretary, donated the savings of his entire life for establishing the ashram. Rest of the donors is occasional donors and no fixed donors remain so far.

Current Needs

At present, day to day expenditure for running Boys’ Home, is becoming difficult as the grant from Govt. of West Bengal does not cover all expenses. Additionally, the Government grant is irregular and even delayed sometimes for 6 to 9 months.

Basic need is to provide nutritious food to the kids and other inmates. The plan is to provide:
Eggs as a source of protein every alternate day. The cost for providing eggs to 60 people 3 to 4 days in a week is Rs. 4,000 per month.

Banana, Guava or other cheaper fruits every alternate day. The cost for providing such fruits to 60 people is Rs. 4,500 per month.

Donations to our Ashram are exempted under 80G of IT Act and the same will be acknowledged with our official receipt. We will be also grateful if you can sponsor a month’s grocery or sponsor the followings:

Sponsor total annual expenses for 1 entire course in vocational training = Rs. 95,000

Construction of the Broken Boundary Wall

The Ashram boundary wall was constructed almost 40 years back. Now a significant portion of it has broken down. This is bringing in stray animals. Also, petty thefts have occurred on our trees. Moreover, this brings safety issues to our Ashram kids and other inmates.

Hence, we plan to build a strong boundary wall which would last for the next 40 years or so. Thus, we need a fund of Rs. 2.5 lakhs to complete the construction of the wall with good quality material. We request your support earnestly.
