Initially they put the money from their own pocket and started-up developing small projects in this area. After getting a remarkable response from local people of Sunderban they thought of continuing the good work and spread their idea and mission to other part of India.

Which area of India are you trying develop?

We are not bounded by any region. Wherever the underprivileged, illiterate, poor and backward people need help, Mukti volunteers are ready to help them. But due to less manpower and minimal fund restriction it is not always possible for us to reach to the every needy people. We are trying to mainly concentrate in various parts of India where development is still a burning issue. Initially we started at southern part of West Bengal, namely ‘Sunderban’ area. Later we successfully executed many projects in many parts of India with the help of our dedicated volunteers.

Project

How does Mukti help the needy?

Mukti helps the needy in many several ways. We do not believe that only a lump sum monetary aid will solve the problems faced by these men. The effect of such an aid is transient and will not facilitate in the long run. Therefore we endeavor to dig out the root causes of the different problems and based on them construct holistic solutions that would best help the society. Keeping this view in mind we started working with various wings to provide such solutions that would have an everlasting impact on the society. Mukti mainly works on five basic wings, namely Education, Health, Livelihood, Ecology and Culture.

How does Mukti choose which place and what type of project to work in?

First Mukti tries to identify the area of problem. Secondly Mukti does proper survey or analysis of the problem. Thirdly Mukti board decides from the outcome of survey/analysis whether Mukti will go for the solution. If board member agrees upon then Mukti board forms a core committee to deal with this problem area. Mukti (core committee) then does advance analysis and design a solution (we call it as ‘project’). Project funding estimation also done during this phase. Core committee submits the reviewed draft project proposal and gives final ‘GO’. Then project proposal along with all guide & manuals given to funding team. Then funding team starts working on the proposal and presents to various interested bodies (Govt., non-profit funding org etc.) and try to arrange fund and represent the same to Mukti executive committee. If funding and available committee handover the project to implementation team.
