About us

I had started but all alone towards my destination

The seeds of RANGASHREE were sown in 1976 by a group of young artists, led by Sh. Mahendra Prasad Singh. United in their passion and respect for Bhojpuri language and performing arts, the group staged its first show in the year 1978. That RANGASHREE was founded in Bokaro Steel City, then in Bihar and now in Jharkhand, cannot be mere coincidence. The versatility of steel and the fragrance of Bihar has stayed with RANGASHREE ever since inception.

Over the years, RANGASHREE spread its wings and grew from strength to strength. With social welfare and promotion of arts its cornerstone, the organisation expanded its horizons to include multi-disciplinary subjects..like IEC .The organisation has been relentlessly……………

The organization has been relentlessly working over the years, across India, towards Rural development, Personality and Communication development, Gender equality, Women and Youth empowerment and Child development. Customized modules on Inter Personal Communication (IPC), Behavioral Change Communication (BCC) and Information Education and Communication (IEC) in addition to theater and drama and theatrical interventions are key strengths of Rangashree.


Social mobilization for various issues such as awareness in youth and adolescents boys and girls on unsafe sex, HIV/AIDS, job oriented education. Environmental challenges like water conservation, voter awareness campaigns, and community mobilization by forming Self Help Groups (SHGs) are other areas of intervention.

Rangashree is amongst very few organizations in India; spreading creativity, awareness and development through nukkad-nataks, drama, theater and films and bringing Bhojpuri language on to the center stage.

With regional offices in Bihar, Jharkhand and Rajasthan and the Secretariat in New Delhi, Rangashree today has good linkages with other NGOs and Civil Societies Organizations, Local Communities and Government Machinery. It has received financial aids from different agencies including private, public & government such as UNICEF, SAIL and Ministry of cultural Affairs amongst others.
