Late Professor Pabitra Kumar Sen, Emeritus Professor, Calcutta University founded “Seva-Bharati School of Living” in 1947. Seva-Bharati is located in Kapgari. Read about Seva-Bharati.
We focus on grass-roots community and work on strengthening the human and scientific capital in order to facilitate local prosperity. Our approach is data driven. A community acquires and manages its own data. It shares data with other communities, state, national and internal entities as necessary to provide feedback to assist planning and development.
