1974, CRS was registered under the West Bengal Societies Act,
and has over the years moved from itís role as a relief and
charitable organization to one of the leading development
agencies in West Bengal. At CRS we believe that development that
is not people centered is not sustainable and therefore CRS goes
to the people to learn
communities to plan, implement, manage, monitor and evaluate
Over the last
28 years CRS has touched
the lives of over 2,50,000 people living in 16 slums in Calcutta.
But numbers are only one part of the story, the measure of
achievement also lies hidden in the stories of all those people
who believed that their actions could make a difference and
therefore contributed in the manner they saw best... their time,
skills or money, and by simply believing in the mission of CRS
and passing on the message to their friends.
