 Welcome !

    www.charmakars.org  is an initiative to provide a Common Platform to the members of 'Charmakar  Samaj' (SC).  
    It aims to facilitate all members of the community  to Seek or Share needful Basic Social Information with an objective to promote intra-community social dialogue, social interaction and cooperation for all-round social development and progress.

  Nature of this platform is Catalytic, Non-Profit, Non-Political, Non-Partisan and Voluntary.

  As of now, Charmakar Samaj members are present all over the country. However, they find themselves  socially fragmented, scattered (dislocated), disconnected, isolated and also wanting for a dignified and quality social life across the country.

 In pursuance of our aims and objectives, we have undertaken following activities:-

To get to know Basic Social Information of own community
To build Who's Who Directory of Social Organizations
To build Who's Who Directory of Prominent Persons
To set up Forums for entrepreneurs, professionals, experts
Emphasize on Education, Employment, Matrimonial issues 
Promote Creative, Constructive and Developmental Activity
Community's Newsletter for social dialogue & interaction
Extend Helping Hand to the deserving & genuine needy
