Empowering women leads to empowering nation…

Rural Bengal Biospheric Research Foundation (RBRF) is a Kolkata based state level civil society organization which is registered under WBSRA-1961, Government of West Bengal and NITI Aayog, Government of India. The organization has received its non-profit status by the income tax department under section 12AA and 80G. The main object of the organization is to Empower Rural Women and to Conserve Biodiversity at different districts and community development blocks of West Bengal. Now, the RBRF appears an eye-opener among the Indian civil society organizations, especially for its MCS (Multi-folded Community Services) and RAN (Remote Area Network)project FIELD (Fisher Women Identification and Empowerment by Livestock Development) and project BESTWAY (Business Entrepreneur Support Towards Womenability and Yield) are two major projects of the organization, exclusively for the rural women.

Besides that, RBRF has also undertaken initiatives for the holistic development of the Urban and Semi-urban women under the project MDA (Multi Disciplinary Assistance). The main objective of the project is to facilitate complete support to them according to their need base. From our long experience, it reveals that the traditional family concept and social enforcement on women turns out the foundation grounds for dependence, dowry, domestic violence, psychological problems, career compromise, separation, so on and so forth! The problem is coupling much more in urban and semi-urban areas, in comparison to the rural belt. Considering the ground reality, RBRF has launched the project MDA which appears a most powerful single window platform for the distressed women with full of their safety and security.
