Purbachal Ananda Foundation has started its humble journey in the year 2005, with 4 parentless children in a mud house at Purokonda, a remote village, 14 Km. from Durgapur and 40 Kms by road from Bankura. Inspiration for the effort came through solemnizing in heart, the message of Swami Vivekananda " Jibe prem kare jei jan, sei jan sebichey Iswar. "

Purbachal Ananda Foundation is a home for socially ostracized, homeless, family less, children, located at Purokonda Village under Barjora Police Station of Bankura District, West Bengal. In our Ashrama, children from different segments, irrespective of their background are admitted for long term rehabilitation with an aim of empowering them through education and training, canopied under the umbrella of love and affection. For this noble cause, we have volunteers comprised of elderly and young people who are devoted social workers and thoroughly familiar with N G O activities.
