    The SAM project promotes sustainable agriculture among rural farmers to improve food security, productivity, and mitigate the negative environmental impacts of environment. With an aim to enhance soil fertility and socio-economic development through initiatives such as alternative cropping, farming equipment provision, vermicomposting, grafting etc. Integrated farming practices are also promoted to maximize resource efficiency and minimize waste.
    This approach emphasizes the cyclical use of all produce and excess to promote long-term sustainability.
    We have linked this to a community business unit called Mukti Fresh so that farmers can get a competitive price of their produce.

  • Health, Water & Sanitation Programme

    Mukti under its health, water & sanitation programme started on a project called Swasthya shongini which is a low-cost, scalable program to improve healthcare services for the rural population by training 24 village women to become campaigners for hygiene and nutrition.

    The Ambulance service to provide an affordable and accessible ambulance services to the people in the rural areas of West Bengal. The project was launched in response to the Covid-19 pandemic resulting from the lack of access to emergency medical care in the rural areas. Through this, Mukti has set up a fleet of fully equipped ambulances that operate 24/7 to respond to emergency medical calls. The project has been instrumental in saving many lives and has helped bridge gap between rural communities and emergency care.

  • Mukti Support School

    In Sundarbans regions of West Bengal, due to low and many a times, no income in the family, most of the young boys and girls were compelled to drop out from school and started migrating in search of job to help their family, thus, making them vulnerable, especially the girls who were reported to be sexually and emotionally abused at the tender age. On the other hand, those who could afford to continue their education, though with great difficulty, were unable to comprehend the academic content. As a result, there was evidence of poor academic performances resulting in drop out from school at an early age. To fill these gaps, MUKTI started Mukti Support School in 2006 and serving more than 1000+ children on yearly basis with an objective to provide coaching support to the formal school students from Std. V – X who were identified as the poorest of the poor and guiding them towards continuous improvement in their academic performances in the school in all 5 major subjects. In 2022, As we are progressing ahead with a greater number of beneficiaries, thus we request you to kindly extend your help once again, this year we are proposing it for 100 new MSS centers and thus taking a step towards the education of disadvantaged children; those are finding it difficult to pursue their education in the pandemic times. This is the third year of the pandemic many students were dropout from education due to their poverty and irregularities in studies. Through MSS they will get an opportunity to complete their education with the current education standard in place.

  • Sustainable Agriculture Movement (Sam)

    Post-Aila & Post-Flood re-construction as well as development initiatives supported by donors, a SAM (Sustainable Agriculture Movement) project has been undertaken in the year 2010. Mukti has planned to implement the SAM ventures for a long-term basis to have a comprehensive outcome in the field of agricultural production and sustainable livelihood opportunities with an emphasis on checking massive migration and poverty-alleviation just after a devastating cyclone and flood. Post Aila land reclamation and sustainable organic agriculture pilot project out comes are remarkable. When large swathes of agricultural land were submerged in saline water raising fears that cultivation could not be resumed for several years. Saathi Revathi, an organic farmer, who had experience in land reclamation after Tsunami worked with Mukti to train farmers in inexpensive organic methods to reclaim land for cultivation. Not only was land reclaimed, but the yield of rice was also better than conventional farming by the end of November. Since food supply became uncertain, expensive, and non-varied, Mukti partnered with some organizations and Development Research Communication & Service Centre (DRCSC), that works on food and livelihood securities of the rural poor, to train families in raising organic kitchen gardens quickly to supplement and enrich their nutritional intake. Even landless families would be able to raise gardens in broken pots, jute bags and bamboo baskets. The simple yet effective techniques have started spreading on their own. However, the organic practices which we have started after Aila cyclone and continued the same practice during the time of Bulbul and Amphan; has proved to be fruitful during the pandemic. When the world was fighting for the survival at that time our farmers were not only produces organic vegetables and uses kitchen gardening to maximum but also helped send their vegetables to market for sale, which help them out to survive in the toughest time of their life. The cyclone has damaged hectares of agricultural land, forests and the rich mangrove population and has severely damaged schools, warehouses, and piped water schemes which affected the productivity of the land leading to decrease in overall income of the farmers.

  • Environment

    Mangroves have tremendous socio-economic importance and provide protection to the hinterland from damages of cyclones/tsunami. Inspite of this, mangroves have been degraded due to human interventions such as illicit felling of trees, unregulated grazing, brackish water aquaculture. With a long term goal of restoring the degraded mangrove areas, MUKTI included afforestation of mangroves as an important component to be implemented in Purboshridharpur block of south 24 pgs district of West Bengal, India. MUKTI has involved in plantation drive since its inception in 2003. The rigorous cyclones and floods in the area has forced organization to work for Mangrove plantation which has noticed a severe drop in last decade. The organization raised Mangroves in few parts of the Sundarbans region
