The Organisation :

Established on 14th November, 1984 as a platform for discussion and action on developmental issues concerning the poor. Gramin Evam Nagar Vikas Parishad (GENVP) was founded by a group of like minded associates to involve the rural and urban poor in various developmental activities. The organization has imbibed the thoughts expressed by the father of our nation, Mahatma Gandhi and another visionary, Loknayak Jaiprakash Narayan, that development can only take place when the people, specially the rural people are mobilized to participate in their own development. Accordingly, GENVP is committed to concentrate on the empowerment of people, especially women & Dalits in the villages, realizing that women & Dalits are the strongest agents of social change and through them the other sections can also be reached.
