About Vikash

Vikash has come a long way as a Non-Governmental Organization in Odisha, working towards Sustainable Development and Protection of People’s Rights through community involvement since 1986.

Since inception, Vikash is working to uphold the ethos of determination,and dedicationconfidence for an all round development of thecommunity. We believe that development can take place when the community realizes its own strength. In the process, we strengthen and support community structures and local institutions. We believe in human initiative, strength and innovative spirit, rather than charity.

We believe “small is beautiful” but at the same time we realize that small things can perish if they are not a part of the whole. Like streams coming together to form a river, the growth of great civilizations comes from a network of small initiatives. Here at Vikash, we have designed our line of action to work in large areas while maintaining the beauty and sanctity of small things.

Vikash worked with  leprosy-affected persons for their rights from 1986 and has expanded to the following areas:
