On a beautiful fall evening of Friday, October 29th, 2021, community members of Mountain House residents (mostly Bengalis of Indian origin) instituted "Poorba" of Mountain House to establish a cultural and social base here in the United States. With a vision to thrive as a non-profit, "Poorba" is making the stand alone as the foremost organization of all the Bengalis in San Joaquin County. As an Organization we are driven to promote the rich and vibrant culture of the Bengal and North East India here in the United States, as well as work hand in glove with the local communities to serve and give back to the people from all ethnic backgrounds. With this in mind, Poorba will be actively organizing literary programs rich in art, music, drama and dance, support sport related activities to promote physical health and mental well-being, and will be actively involved in philanthropic and fund-raising events to serve and positively influence the life of one and all around us.
