Sabuj Sangha is a non-profit, non-government development organization committed to improving the lives of people less fortunate in West Bengal, India, through participation and empowerment. Sabuj Sangha traces its roots to a social club initiated in 1954 in the village of Nandakumarpur in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal. It soon became involved in local efforts to enhance wellbeing of the communities caught between the vagaries of nature and shifting tides in the Sundarban delta and the significant developmental deficits in the region.

The Organisation is registered under West Bengal Society Registration Act 1961 in 1975. From its humble beginnings, Sabuj Sangha has grown into a vibrant organization working with a range of people across multiple sectors. Sabuj Sangha implements programmes in various sectors, catering to the needs of vulnerable communities. The organization believes that there is no simple solution to reduce/eradicate poverty. As such, in order to overcome poverty, it is necessary to address the range of issues that poor people face on a daily basis. Tackling issues in an integrated, sustainable manner, Sabuj Sangha aimed at improving quality of life of most vulnerable people of the communities.

The organization is also registered under Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act 1976, Section 12A Income Tax Act 1961; empanelled with the Planning Commission, Government of India, National CSR Hub, West Bengal State AIDS Prevention and Control Society; accredited by Credibility Alliance.
