‘Pallimangal’ in Bengali means, ‘rural welfare’. In an attempt to give a concrete shape to Sri Ramakrishna’s teaching, “Service to Man is Service to God”, the Pallimangal Unit of Ramakrishna Mission Sarada Sevashrama at Joyrambati was setup in 1980 by Revered Swami Vireswaranandaji Maharaj. Its primary focus is the integrated rural development of people who are economically deprived. This Unit has been running successfully since its inception by providing the poor people with income opportunities to improve their economic and social status. The Pallimangal also provides educational help through free coaching, supply of study materials, scholarships and vocational training facilities. In addition, it provides financial and medical help to poor villagers and financial help for the marriage ceremony of poor girls and food and clothing to the widows residing in Joyrambati and nearby villages.
