With an objective of spreading the charm of wearing sari, “The Saree Saga”, a Facebook group was created by Ms. Vedaparna Purokayastha in UK. Within last 3 years the group has almost 60000 members (women from all segment of society) from all over the world like Bangalore Puna, Mumbai, Kolkata, Guwahati, Delhi, Silchar, Chennai, and UK & USA.
The Saree Saga is not an organization only to promote the sari culture but also stand with all the needy under privileged girls and women. They did many social works, fashion shows and public awareness camps etc at Kolkata, Guwahati, Bangalore and other cities from time to time involving the women and girls from weaker section of the society. They took care of 1 year education expenses of 13 needy girls. They also did fund raising activities to raise the fund for treatment of poor and needy people. Recently Saree Saga team did charity work in Red Light areas of Kalighat, Kolkata
Some of the members also started doing sari business and other business utilizing the network of this group. They hope that within the next few months the membership will rise to 100000 and they will do more and more CSR activities for the benefit of Girl Child and women. There is absolutely no charge for any membership in this group.
