Dear Readers,

Bandhan-Konnagar is dedicated to the development of communities. The organisation has made some remarkable breakthroughs in the field of societal and individual transformation. The organisation is addressing poverty alleviation through its holistic development programmes in the fields of education, health, livelihood promotion, enterprise development, employment generation and financial literacy. The programmes are designed and implemented with the intent of supporting the not-so privileged segments of the society and help them progress economically as well as socially. The organisation is focussed on impact assessment and continual improvement of programmes, which have so far touched the lives of millions of beneficiaries through its presence across several states of the country.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the various governments and, national and international donors who have supported Bandhan-Konnagar through its journey. It is because of their support and patronage that Bandhan-Konnagar has been able to impact the lives of so many people across the country.

As the organisation takes decisive steps in furthering its goal of socio-economic advancement in the lives of less privileged, we hope to continue to have the blessings and good wishes of all. With your support, we are determined to further pursue our journey of transformation and progress.
