ABOUT SATRA

SATRA was formed, with the motto PEOPLE FOR DEVELOPMENT, DEVELOPMENT FOR PEOPLE, by a group of Social activists of Assam in the year 2002. The activists who were from various parts of Assam province met at Sipajhar and decided to form an Organization with the view to work for the development of Society and the common people who were lagging behind in various fields from Economic to living standard. Retired Principal of B. Barooah College-Guwahati, Dr. Dinesh Baishya, named it as SATRA which abbreviates “Social Action for Appropriate Transformation and Advancement in Rural Areas”. All the social activists unanimously accepted the name and in that meeting Mrs. Jyoti Prabha Bora was elected as Founder Chief Functionary. Later in the year 2003 she joined in a govt. job and in her place all the members elected Mr. Nani Kumar Saikia as Executive Director of SATRA WEF March of 2004.   Read More
