Seva Bharati, Kapgari


(a) Restore social, scientific and cultural heritage of the community promoting the growth of self-sustaining family units within each village enabling each family to be free and individual component of an integrated village community. (b) Construct a self-supporting village community which will be autonomous and yet constructively interdependent, and (c) evolve a system of education for each individual so as to enable him to be gainful. This approach gives equal stress to the development of the individual and the village community as a whole.

Area of Operation:



Seva Bharati is a NGO of national repute. With the attainment of national freedom in 1947, great hopes were enkindled in the hearts of the Indian people. A number of patriotic scholars resolved to step out of the ivory tower and dedicate them to the task of national reconstruction beginning with work in the countryside. Prof. Pabitra Kumar Sen, referred to as the pioneer of Agricultural Education in West Bengal, believed that education was a catalyst for change, which could bring hope to the down trodden of rural India. To translate his conviction to reality he founded, “Seva Bharati” in 1947 around a remote village called Kapgari in the district of Paschim Midnapore.
