for the development of North Bihar
In Vulnerable Communities
Aripana Foundation is a grassroots civil society organization based in Darbhanga, which was set up in 2018, and works for the development of North Bihar. The Foundation works on education, primary healthcare, and language & culture.
It is named after an integral aspect of the Mithila culture, the Aripana – the floor drawings and home-art adorning Maithil homes. Aripana is an inseparable part of the Maithil people’s lives, heralding new beginnings, auspiciousness, joy and celebration.
