About us

A brief overview of the organization

Historical Background

Gram Vikas Sewa Sansthan was established in 1976 by Dr. Vijay Prakesh Maheshwari & some social reformer. They formed a group named SEWA. They are inspired by the Gandhian ideology of rural development. In the starting phase they were totally unaware about the social work and had a single motto to improve the social and economical condition of a poor marginalized society. They started to organize village level meetings with the representation of every section of society and addressed that the educational status of children & knowledge level of the society were very critical. As Dr. Maheshwari was a doctor by profession so he very closely monitored that the people in the community were so much vulnerable and deprived. So he realized the need of a school for the children and founded nursery school.


The organization, Gram Vikas Sewa Sansthan was structured in 1976 in a meeting of some social activists and was formally registered under the SocietiesRegistration Act XXI, 1860 on 21 October in 1978 with registration number 2977. The organization started his journey by organizing village level meeting with representation of every section of society in it.

After the formation phase the organization carried out mass program on awareness generation, vocational training and adult education with support from local communities and some donor agencies.
