The word 'Prantojon' roughly translates to 'The edge' derived from the word 'Prantik', meaning 'The marginal'. 
The group's main aim is to support the people who are on the margins of the lower strata of the society. These people are not financially, capable of managing natural/ man-made disasters or any other form of tragedy that could cause major interruptions in a regular life. Most of their conditions are such that under normal circumstances, they would prioritise earning a few extra coins, instead of getting their documents ready and updated.
Therefore, in times of disasters, they are even deprived of help from the government. These people are not aware how to manage disasters. Moreover, their financial conditions would have failed them anyway, even if they were aware.In this scenario, Prantojon's agenda is to make these people aware of the ongoing scenarios, provide them with relief and help them secure a better future. The group operates mainly in Westbengal and it's adjacent areas.

They have been crowdfunding and reaching out to the villages and suburbs in and around Kolkata. Prantajon also has been working with migrant daily wage workers from different parts of the country.
The group also reaches out to respective authorities in areas they can't acess physically and tries their best so that the ones being deprived gets the basic necessities to sustain life.

Prantojon's efforts to provide a better life for these people of the society struggling with lack of education on the borders of poverty, will continue now For years to come.
