Sabuj Sangha emerged from an association founded in 1954 in the village of Nandakumarpur in Mathurapur II in West Bengal. In 1975, Sabuj Sangha became a non-profit, non-governmental organization dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged communities in West Bengal, India, through an integrated and sustainable approach. Participation and empowerment of local communities are prioritized. The Sundarbans Delta is prone to the whims of nature and therefore suffers from significant development deficits that persist in many parts of the region. Sabuj Sangha is engaged locally to improve the well-being of the communities living in this region under these deficits.
Today, Sabuj Sangha is a rapidly growing organization supported by numerous donors and working with a number of partners. It implements specific programs based on the needs of the population to reduce and ultimately eliminate poverty. Based on many years of experience, the organisation is aware that the poverty reduction strategy must essentially address all the interrelated development issues that an impoverished community faces every day.
Sabuj Sangha is a registered "Society" registered under the West Bengal Society Registration Act 1961; the organisation is also registered under the Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 1976, Section 12A Income Tax Act 1961; familiar with the Planning Commission (Government of India), the National CSR Hub, the AIDS Prevention and Control Society in West Bengal and accredited by the Credibility Alliance.
