The unit of Keertika at Budge Budge is a story of bravehearts who toil everyday to provide respite to the distressed downtrodden of Budge Budge, Maheshtala, Pujali and the region near the region. It was kick started in 2011 under the aegis of KUSP and Budge Budge municipality. Since then it has become an umbrella that provides legal advice to not only the downtrodden women of the region but also to the elderly and anyone who needs help.
The demography of that part of South 24 Parganas is predominantly that of minority. It’s political scenario is of strife and deprivation. Keertika has battled the deep-rooted social abuse rampant there. In the last 4 years, they have trained the women of the region to be self-sufficient and have managed to bring about a major change in the mindset of the general people. The baton of this success is being carried ahead by the local CDS members. Now, Keertika is synonymous with justice.
