Gram Vikas Parishad (GVP), within 25 years of its inception in 1987, has become a synonymous with women’s empowerment, child labour rehabilitation etc. Working in some of the poorest districts of India, Madhubani, Darbhanga, Samastipur, Madhepura, Saharsa, Araria, Supaul, Sheohar and Sitamarhi (Bihar), GVP had to face blockades at every step. The geographical terrain compounded by political apathy has led to many miseries in the region.
Due to the number of rivers, the region is flood prone, economically impoverished due to lack of industrial infrastructure, and finally lack of development due to political apathy. GVP answered the need of the region for a strong willed organization to lift the morale of the people in general, empower the women subjected to suppression for centuries, child labour working in the local brick kilns and child labor, safe migration ,Income genaration, Community Empowerment, climate change, rampant human trafficking from Nepal and Bangladesh due to the proximity of the borders. GVP has emerged as the only Resource Centre in this region on the social issues, it not only provides training to the partner NGOs and but also provides data to the funding organizations on the various issues of concern to them.
The respect for the organization can be seen in the eyes of the millions of poor people living in the area WE MADE A DIFFERENCE...
GVP is now ISO 9001:2008 certified.
