Vikalp Samajik Sanstha


Vikalp Samajik Sanstha (VIKALP) is the result of the vision of a few friends, pursuing Masters in Social Work, a post-graduate degree in rural development. Banking on their learning from the course, they decided to float an entity that would focus on developmental issues of their native place, Barwani, a district in the Nimar region of Madhya Pradesh.

The objective behind establishing the organization, as its name suggests (VIKALP means “an alternative”), was to have an option available to work on rural development issues after having practical experience of the sector by working on field with various development agencies for a period of four to five years.

With its initial mandate of comprehensive development coupled with the lack of on-field experience of its promoters, VIKALP ventured into a number of areas like advocacy, health and nutrition, women empowerment through SHG promotion, and microfinance.

VSS works in the Anjad block of the district of Barwani, Tonkkhurd block of the district Dewas and Mandsaur and Manawar in Dhar. The micro Finance operation is currently taken care by its sole branch situated at Anjad, where nearly 500 women are involved in self-help groups. VIKALP has also formed a co-operative bank. It has also been working on child rights and has carried out research for CSR and the Government.
