Parivaar is a humanitarian organization working towards the total care and overall development of children who are highly vulnerable to exploitation, victimization and trafficking, including orphans, street children, abandoned children, and extremely impoverished children from tribal areas.  

Parivaar runs West Bengal's largest free residential educational institutions having more than 2000 resident children in separate campuses for boys and girls. These residential institutions are seen as model institutions in the field of caretaking and overall development of vulnerable children. We have been the recipient of the 2011 National Award for Child Welfare from the President of India, the highest recognition by the Government of India.  

Parivaar runs Day Boarding (Meals & Education centres) for children in selected impoverished tribal and rural pockets called ‘Sri Ramakrishna Vivekananda Seva Kutir’ (200 as of Nov 2020 and expanding to one new village every week with a target of 500 villages by 2023). At these Kutirs about 20,000 children are getting nutritious meals (breakfast and dinner) along with Strongly Supplementary education and Life-Skills over morning and evening shifts.
