About the Organisation
Agragati is a recognised community support Civil Society Organisation that focuses on fostering innovations to help the poor’s sustainable lifestyles. Established as a “not for profit” in 23rd January 1978. We have taken the direction he set under the skillful and vivacious leadership of the dedicated social worker Mr. Tapan Kumar Mandal, who was moved to action by the dreadful predicament of flood effected people in West Bengal in 1978 and was inspired to take action to improve their socio-economic conditions.
In order to bring about socioeconomic transformation for unreached people such tribes, ST, SC, and weaker sections, Agragati has enlisted the aid of a number of committed social activists, social workers, local community workers/leaders, and national/international organisations.
Building Governance system, PRI institutions and Gram Sabhas to ensure effective public delivery services to the local people has been one of our main areas of focus.
