Institute for Indian Mother and Child

The Indian Institute for Mother and Child (IIMC) is a grassroots Non-Government, Non-profit Organisation working in the rural areas south of Kolkata, West Bengal, India. It was set up by Dr Sujit Brahmochary to help the poorest of the poor, working with women and children with an aim to empower them through provision of skills/opportunities such as education (often via child sponsorship), a microcredit program, health worker training and medical clinics, women’s cooperatives and women’s peace councils.

In cooperation with international financial support, IIMC has built numerous schools and runs 5 rural health clinics whose main focus is primary health care.

Two of our members – Jill O’Callaghan and Dr Cherie Graziotti – have been involved in helping Dr Sujit and IIMC for decades. You can follow the IIMC Australia Facebook page for their updates.

We have registered assisting IIMC as a RAWCS project so that you can make a tax deductible donation to IIMC.
