  Bolpur Project:  

The Bolpur Project of TSRD was its starting endeavour in the year 1969. Late Pannalal Dasgupta, founder of Tagore Society for Rural Development started development work in Bolpur block of Birbhum district through repairing the embankment of the river Ajoy with the help of local youth.

The Bolpur project of TSRD geo-physically remains within the Chhotonagpur plateau. Soil type is older alluvial and laterite. The project initiated in 1969 carried on modest interventions by organizing the people for flood protection, creation of additional irrigation facilities, afforestation, helping people to become self-reliant by organizing grain bank and other activities. The project has a model agricultural farm for sustainable agriculture. The nature of interventions gradually changed at time. The project coverage now extends to 220 villages. The present focus of the project is to promote sustainable livelihood of the poorest section of people of its project command area. The Bolpur Project of TSRD is working for comprehensive development of the downtrodden people of three blocks under financial support of different donor agencies, like OPEC Fund for International Development, Jeniva, state Government of West Bengal and local collection.
