DBIS started to work for under privileged people such as the urban poor, slum dwellers, rural & tribal poor, destitute women and children to improve their socio-economic condition through microcredit, skill & vocational training, education, and social development programmes through the cooperation of different agencies. The target of the organization is to work with 50000 poor families by 2015 for their overall development.
Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, is the cultural capital of India and the commercial capital of Eastern India, located on the east bank of the Hooghly River. The Kolkata metropolitan area, including suburbs, has a population exceeding 15 million, making it the third most populous metropolitan area in India and the 13th most populous urban area in the world. The city is also classified as the eighth largest urban agglomeration in the world. Being densely populated has also resulted in the development of slums and people living in really poor neighbourhoods. DBIS works with the urban slum dwellers to bring about a significant change in their living conditions.
