Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee

The Sports Initiative of DURBAR

Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee (DMSC) took an initiative to build-up a sports team comprising around 100 children of sex workers from various red light areas and other indigenous communities like 'Shabar' from rural areas of West Bengal State of India. DMSC has taken an innovative process to provide opportunities to the children of various marginalized communities and bring out the talents in the lime-light through Self Regulatory Board. Rahul Vidya Niketan, Baruipur, is the main sports center of DMSC where a sports complex is slowly cropping up which is being prepared by Durbar's own initiative. The children from various marginalized communities are coming regularly for practice under guidance and coaching of renowned ex-footballer Mr. Biswajit Majumdar. Till date DMSC does not have any external financial support for the purpose of sports apart from their mother's love and little contribution as per their capacity.
