Srimanta Foundation for Culture and Society is a charitable Trust working towards upholding and preserving the abiding principles of non-violence and humanism, peace and development, unification and social integration in Assam, the Northeast and other parts of the country. Since its inception and inauguration on April 8, 2003 by the then Hon’ble Governor of Assam, Lt. General (Rtd.) S.K. Sinha in Guwahati. The Foundation has been striving to spread and realise the egalitarian principles as laid down by Srimanta Sankardeva, the sixteenth century Assamese Bhakti saint and social reformer and the visionary rulers like Chaulung Sukaphaa and Nara Naryana.
For the last sixteen years we have been working towards building up of social security and capital among the ethnic tribes and non tribes of Assam through innovative programs aimed at social reengineering. To this end, we experiment through dance, music and other art forms as well as research, documentation, seminars, workshops and discussions as media of communication and unification.
The Vision is SRIMANTA. It is to achieve a beautiful and prosperous society enshrined in the Indian thought process.
The Mission is FOUNDATION. It is to lay the groundwork based on the learning from Srimanta Sankaradeva’s Bharat Borixe under the able patronage of Naranarayan-Chilarai and Sukaphaa’s Bor Axom to build the Assamese society to contribute to the larger Indian society and the entire mankind.
