Where is Ananda Nagar located?

     Ananda Nagar is a unique rural development project and is located in one of the poorest and most backward areas of India, Purulia district in West Bengal. The area around Ananda Nagar is inhabited by indigent tribal villagers. Ananda Nagar, in fact, exemplifies most of the problems which rural people face, such as lack of education and literacy, chronic disease especially leprosy, widespread malnutrition verging on starvation, total absence of any source of energy or electricity, non-productive agriculture on arid and non-irrigated lands, and lack of any type of industrial development. However, there are opportunities in the midst of almost nothing left but rocks - which are ideally suited to create beads and gem-stones. In the past, India has been a master of this craft for many centuries if not thousands of years.

     The projects of Ananda Nagar are designed to address all of these different  challenges, and there is much hope to transform a depressed area into a vibrant example of sustainable development creating happiness and joy.
