NISHTHA Means Dedication

NISHTHA means Dedication in Bengali; dedicated towards empowering women to fight for equal rights, equal opportunities and equal dignity.

Initiated in the year 1975 by Mrs. Pritilata Das, together with about 5 to 10 women, over the years Nishtha has come to be known as an organization for the women, by the women! Today Nishtha is what it is because of the tireless struggle and efforts of its 580 odd women volunteers, 420 odd girl volunteers who have been volunteering to keep the work going on in the grassroots without bothering about incentives or remunerations. Along with the volunteers are about 8920 women, 8152 girls and 2000 men who are the reason behind our organization and 52 odd team members working continuously and selflessly indirectly benefitting about 2 Lakh individuals, enabling our vision to build discrimination free just world a reality.
