Strengths & Weaknesses of the Organization:

a) Strengths:

The society has given us learning opportunities. Following are a few strengths that give us courage to work and dedicate our might for welfare to people.

b) Weaknesses:

In spite of many strengths, there are few weaknesses that need urgent attention. We are gradually improving these.

Our Khadi product is less competitive in market. This is why sales volume is not satisfactory. There is requirement to make Khadi and village industries competitive by skill up gradation of producer, proper promotion and cost efficiency. Poverty among native people prevents them to contribute enough resource support in SGVS development intervention.

We found it difficult to act on many meaningful projects due to resource constraints. On many occasions, we don’t fund ourselves fit to meet mass aspirations.

Major Challenges Ahead

Empowering the deprived and poor communities specially schedule caste, other backward caste and poor and marginalized farmers for holistic development are the major concerns of the organization. Re-establishment of Panchayati Raj Institutions has provided a constitutional ground to resolve their conflicts and to govern the administration of development. It may provide a positive hopeful situation if properly directed. Now SGVS has identified to facilitate these PRI institutions and awakens of the stakeholders as a major challenge to have a way out.
Acknowledging common and disadvantaged people about the provision for their individual family, community and society development is the major challenge ahead for SGVS and we have to co-ordinate ends i.e. institutions and programmes and beneficiaries in such a demonstrative way that it would bear positive results.
Empowering the institution of civil society, community groups particularly the women through acknowledgement, linkage, lobbying and facilitating them

to organize the immediate challenges, which we have, address in a more effective and efficient way.


Our Strategy

Direct intervention with community

Area Profile & Genesis

Jehanabad district came in existence in 1986. It was a sub-division of the Gaya since 1872. The main aim behind the creation of this district was to accelerate the pace of development in tandem with tackling the problems of poverty, unemployment and underdevelopment. The climate of Jehanabad is of extreme mature, i.e. very hot in the summer and biting cold in the winters. The average rainfall of the district is 1074.5 mm. Out of the total rainfall, 90 percent comes from monsoons. The economics of the district is agriculture based. The soil is very much fertile known as Kewal in local terms. The soil is very much suitable for the production of rice, wheat and cane etc. The agriculture depends up on the rain and this situation creates highly vulnerable situations to the small and marginal farmers as low rain is observed in the district.

Due to lack of development activities, remoteness of the areas, administration has little control over the situation. Problems of land reform, minimum wages, social status of details and inaccessibility towards the democratic rights has created such vicious circle in the area that people are leaving in a hopeless situation.

Migration of labor due to lack of employment opportunities, pressure tactics of agricultural labourers to increase wages, total dependency on the agriculture and low return of agricultural produce, indebtedness and attitudinal problems at society level is further aggravating the situation day by day.

The Secretary of organization SGVS, Sri Rabindra Sharma, who belongs from the Arwal Block of the district, was silently observing the growing menace of vulnerable situations of the area, while he was studying at Patna University in early 80s. At Patna Mr. Rabindra Sharma has got an opportunity to interact with the prominent.

Gandhian and Sarvodya Leaders. Being influenced with the Gandhian ideologies, he frequently starts visiting and attending the meetings at Gandhian Nidhi Patna to search out the strains of any amicable solution of the problems being faced by the society from where he belongs. Interaction with prominent Gandhian leaders like Sidhraj Dhada, Thakurdas Bang Shivanand Bhai has given him a new insight to visualize the problem. After regular consultation with these people he came to the logical conclusion that lack of employment opportunities and low agricultural return are the basic triggering factors behind this social chaos.

He has been advised to start some constructive activities based on Gandhian ideology afterwards having consensus among the prominent persons of the are alit has been decided to registered a voluntary organization in the name of late. Sita Devi, a prominent social activist of the area who had lead the fight for the cause of poor and underprivileged people.

Under the above background Sita Gramoudyog Vikas Sansthan (SGVS) has been registered under society Registration Act of 1860 on 6th Dec. 1991 with an objectives, vision and mission stated below.
