On behalf of our organization, we are happy to present our Annual Report for the year 2015-16. This year, MANTHAN has completed ten years since its registration and dedicated for the development of the rural and poor people of the Dhanbad, Giridih and Bokaro district of Jharkhand as its commend area. The organization is a people's organization that is constantly working towards empowerment of the needy, poor people of its target area through various community mobilization activities, empowerment of women, adolescents and underprivileged people with special focus on HIV/AIDS right from the beginning.

MANTHAN believes that, poverty eradication and development is possible only when people come together in a group and decide to work together. The environment provides the frameworks as well as the agenda, which draws people together lead them to work together and awakens their creative potentials and lead towards an improved quality of life.
