The Institute for Indian Mother & Child

The Institute for Indian Mother & Child (IIMC) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1989 by Dr. Sujit Kumar Brahmochary to promote health and education for the people of West Bengala, especially women and children, who live in poverty and have poor access to health care. 

Sujit, a doctor with advanced studies in Europe, began by personally going village by village to offer medical care to women and children unable to reach health facilities in the distant city. Today the organization has expanded its activities and includes, in addition to the medical program, a hygiene education program, a women empowerment program, and a microcredit program.

SIT supports this social entrepreneurship project by conveying donations and contributing to specific projects with its volunteers and experts. For example, with studies on the microcredit program, design of photovoltaic systems and educational activities.
