About the Founder & the person/team likely to lead the project:

Sonarpur Progatir Pathe has been founded by nine young alumni led by Rabindra Nath Mondal of Ramkrishna Mission Samaj Sevak Shikhan Mandri, Belur. Founder members are from different islands of Sunderban. After completion of rural development course they realized, many of the burning problems of their islands can be addressed by tying up & sensitizing the service providers of Gov. /Non-Govt. entities and resource mobilization.
