Who we are

Tiger Widow Welfare Society was conceived years back by Mr N C Jana, a evolution & environment professional; during a fishing (he is a angler and scuba diver ); trip to Sundarban waterways when he came across the difficult way of life, the local community people are facing. He was moved by the life story of local people and made a detailed study of their plight & probable reason. On numerous visit to the fringe colonies of the 6 blocks surrounding the Sundarban Reserve Forest he found that thousands of people are living in a very small earthen hut beside the many waterways; who have no source of living except the small forest produce and waterways. They are settled for more than 30 years and depend on collection of fish, crab, honey, firewood etc ie the small produce of Sundarban. They have no resources for living and not even the provision of drinking water for which they have to travel daily few km inside the village. During the numerous visit he saw people with severe injury marks, without limbs and came to know that these people are survivor of tiger, crocodile or shark attack inside and outside the reserve forest. The fringe colonies have no infrastructure including roads, water supply, medical facilities leading to insufficient medical treatment of the injured one leading to death in most of the cases who get first aid after hours of travel from the jungle to a clinic which are very few and ill equipped.
