Helping women from the rag picker communities
DONATE TO TISHED
Tiljala SHED is a grass roots, apolitical, non-religious, not-for-profit organisation based in Kolkata, India. We work to empower the city’s most underprivileged and marginalised groups, especially the rag picker communities.​

The Gyan Azhar Library offers a range of services to destitute girls and is extremely popular with them. It is located inside a slum and so is easily accessible to those for whom it is meant. The library membership is nudging 700 and it is one of the busiest places in its neighborhood. It has both books and Internet facilities.

Tiljala SHED has facilitated the creation of Association of Rag Pickers of Calcutta (ARP) which is a registered legal entity and the only such association for the entire rag pickers community in West Bengal.

Check out our testimonials

I had the privilege of working with Tiljala SHED in June, 2018. I experienced firsthand the remarkable work they are doing in Kolkata. Education, women empowerment, and work training for girls are only a few examples.
This study trip to Calcutta and the encounter with the Tiljala SHED, has been hugely thought-provoking. We ask: How do we change ourselves so that we can influence a more just world? We all know how hard that is.
I was welcomed by the Tiljala SHED staff, who took me with them in their daily work and showed me the reality of millions of underprivileged childen, women and men thriving in Kolkata's slums.
