Gramin Vikas Samiti (GVS) was established in 1992 to work with the most marginalized groups of society, to promote respect and equality, as well as establish sustainable livelihoods for communities in Madhya Pradesh. They focus on empowering deprived and vulnerable sections of society; particularly tribals, Dalits, children and women.
Some of their activities are as follows:
Children's Rights: Child Rights & You (CRY) has been a major donor to GVS for the last several years. Programmes supported by CRY are Right to Survival, Right to Protection, Right to Development and Right to Participation.
Livelihood Development: They work for the upliftment of farmers by encouraging them to adopt organic farming techniques and by training them to produce crops that produce a higher yield so that the rate of malnutrition decreases.
Interference with grass root service providers: The organisation conducts regular check-ups of villagers along with administering vaccination camps, and distribution of medication. They empower adolescent girls by conducting home visits and providing information regarding healthcare and their rights.
Public Awareness Campaigns: Meetings and capacity building workshops conducted on health, livelihood, and government schemes were organised in 60 different villages where about 2,000 people participated.
