 Kolkata Rista is a Community Based Organization (CBO) which was established in 2003, and registered in 2004, under Society Act 1961.
 Kolkata Rista provides information and service to the Gender and Sexual Minority, Transgender/Hijra and the MSM (men having sex with men)community people. Kolkata Rista helps improve the health conditions of the people who are infected and affected by HIV. It helps to build capacity, empower the community people and provides knowledge on Human Rights and livelihood.

The  motive of Kolkata Rista is  to reverse and eliminate HIV/AIDS within the society and  among the vulnerable communities, through regular health campaigns, supportive services, and by providing information about STI,STDs, HIV/AIDS.
 Our overall approach is usually direct and face to face interaction. We work for poor, illiterate “Kothi”s. At times, our peer educators, coordinators and supervisors arrange for drop-in sessions in and around their work places. Our beneficiaries take out some time from their work and pop in at our drop-in-centers where our staff provides condom demonstration education and safer sex behaviors. Once a month, we organize health-clinics and counseling sessions at our drop in centers, where our beneficiaries come for thorough health checkups.
 Thus, we come in direct contact with beneficiaries affected and infected in sexually transmitted diseases. On “World AIDS Day”, every year, we organize programmes like rallies, indoor-cultural events and stalls, through which we aim to generate HIV/AIDS awareness among the beneficiaries.
