Hooghly Badhir Mudran Samabay Samiti Limited (HBMSSL)

(An industrial cooperative of adult deaf persons)

Traditionally, organizations of disabled persons (DPOs) devote themselves to 
lobbying for establishing their rights. Our story is different. In the mid-eighties PKK felt a strong need to form an association of its ex-students to initiate a dialogue about their employment, future plans and aspirations. Several meetings and discussion led to the creation of a co-operative society to organize economic activities for their self- employment. PKK provided the necessary equipment and machinery. Thus, Hooghly Badhir Mudran Samabay Samity Ltd (HBMSSL) was formed in 1987. It is an industrial co-operative society of ex-students of PKK. It made no profit in the initial years. Business turnover began rising from the mid-nineties, generating both profits and employment opportunities. At present, 12 boys are working in the printing unit and 14 girls in the stitching unit.
