Our History

Purva Bharati Educational Trust (PBET): Lighting the Path of Progress in North-East India.

Conceived by a collective of enlightened retired educationists who recognized the untapped potential within the rural communities, the Purva Bharati Educational Trust (PBET) came into being, with a resolute mission to empower students with career-oriented education. In 1998, PBET took its first step, driven by a singular purpose: to empower students with career-oriented education, transforming their lives and paving the way for future development.

With unwavering commitment and fueled by a passion for progress, PBET set its sights on a larger horizon. In 2007, PBET expanded its mission, turning its attention towards the untapped potential of the North-East Region.

Our leadership has undergone a transformation, and our priorities have evolved over the years. We have transitioned our traditional organization to align with a modern gender rights framework while embracing a social justice perspective.

Today, PBET stands tall as an embodiment of perseverance and determination, weaving the threads of knowledge, opportunity, and empowerment into the tapestry of North-East India. Guided by the principles of excellence and inclusivity, PBET continues to carve a path towards a brighter future, empowering generations and fostering sustainable progress.
