About Nimpith

To give a concrete shape to the noble and lofty ideals of Acharya Swami Vivekananda, Revered Srimat Swami Buddhanandaji Maharaj started his Rural Welfare Services by setting up Nimpith Sri Ramakrishna Ashram in 1960-61 with a view to improving the physical, mental and economic condition of the neglected and under privileged masses of the most backward South 24-Parganas District of West Bengal after devoting himself in numerous Social Reforming Services in various renowned Math And Missions Centres of the Ramakrishna Math & Mission, Belur particularly in the Rajkot Centre. The first and foremost needs for the development of the remote areas of Sundarbans are the improvements of Communication System, Education, Health, Culture, Agriculture and Small-Scale Industry. Therefore, in order to improve the Communication System a 20- Kilometers Pacca Road from Joynagar to Jamtala Via Nimpith was constructed with the kind help and co-operation from the then Hon’ble Chief Minister of West Bengal, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy as well as with active support and financial aid from the P.W.D (Roads) Department, Govt. of West Bengal. This 20 Kilometers Tar Road is keeping the connection with Joynagar-Kulpi Road and also it is the Connective Road with Kolkata and other cities. Gradually Swami Buddhanandaji Maharaj creates the improved modern communication in the backward area of inaccessible Sundarbans by providing with Electricity and Telephone facilities.

This great Social-reformer Saint began his Rural Developmental Activities on priority basis with great emphasis on Education and Health and initiated a unique method of Ten Year Plan in place of Government’s Five Year Plan. When Swamiji first stepped in this backward area of Nimpith, there was only a Junior High School where 133 students were provided with education.

As there was no scope for Higher Education, most of the students were deprived of the torch of knowledge for higher studies except a negligible number of meritorious students availed themselves of this opportunity of higher education. To increase self-awareness among the people of Sundarbans especially among the youths, Swamiji began to spread the beginning co-educational system was accepted but it was transformed into separate Boys’ and Girls’ Schools from Nursery level to Higher Secondary level thinking it to be congenial to Rural Environment. At present the Ashram has been conducting11 educational institutions. Now around 5500 Students are prosecuting their studies in all these schools out of them 1000 students are accommodated (with food and lodging facilities) in four well equipped Ashram Hostels. Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Harijan and Muslim Community Students hailing from the inaccessible and far-off Islands of the Sundarbans are given preference for admission as Hostellers. Among the aforesaid boarders, 60% to 70 % pass Madhyamik Examination with First and Second Division Marks and go for Higher Studies.
