Sarada Nari Sangathan, the sister organization of the Mahamandal, is working silently among women for their life-building since 1989 with the ideal of Sri Sarada Devi. Now there are 50 units, which organize weekly study circles and some social service activities. Many of the units arrange daylong women’s training camps to propagate the ideas of the Sangathan.
The 21st Annual All India Women’s Training Camp of the Sangathan was held from 28 to 31 October 2010 at Bhogpur K.M. High School, Bhogpur, Dist. Purba Medinipur, West Bengal. The aim of the camp was to inspire women in life-building, following the ideal of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sarada Devi, and Swami Vivekananda, and to organize them for this work. From all walks of life 408 women joined the camp as trainees, and 127 more participated in the programmes on Sunday. Revered Pravrajika Shuchiprana Mataji of Sarada Math, Dakshineshwar, inaugurated the camp on 28 October and addressed the campers and guests.
The main training programme included classes and question-answer sessions on character-building, mental concentration, and the aims and objectives of the Sangathan as well as physical training and music classes. An exhibition was set up on the life of Sri Sarada Devi. A bookstall with the Mahamandal and Udbodhan publications was opened. On the last day of the camp a colourful procession was taken out in the locality.
