In the long past, Socio-economic situation of our area under Magrahat Block-II, South 24 Parganas was beset with untold wretchedness and backwardness. Specially rural women were depressed and oppressed ruthlessly. There was only one primary school with few number of girls and boys. No treatment facilities except quack doctors were available in the locality.

In this dark scenario, Late Brahmacharini Tara Rani Chakraborty was moved to pitiful conditions of rural women and children with pain and grievances. She made up her mind to work selflessly for enhancement of the quality of life of local women and children specially. She also resigned the post of Headmistress of local primary school. Later on, she came in contact with Sandhya Das and some other women who gradually become devotees of the noble cause of welfare works. Sri Jagadish Chandra Mondal a committed and generous soul, joined in the effort after resigning Central Govt. Service.
In 1968, Sarada Ramakrishna (Sishu & Mahila) Sevashram was formed by ten devotees and was registered under Societies Registration Act, Govt. of West Bengal. The initial works were women's education, balwadi and children feeding which were run by collection of alms and small donation. We suffered extremely to work in this year long backward areas. The women's organization is based on the ideals of Sri Ramakrishna, Maa Sarada Devi and Srimat Swami Vivekananda.
