Overview

Vivekananda Sevakendra-O-Sishu Uddyan (VSSU), a registered society under West Bengal Societies Registration Act 1961, has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a local organization in 1983. Founded by Sri Kapilananda Mondal, VSSU began by providing basic social development programs to the local community through education, environment and healthcare endeavors.

VSSU operates on the philosophy that the community itself possesses the resources for growth and development; however, they lack the mechanisms to harness these resources themselves. Thus to sustainably support social development activities financially, VSSU started individual micro finance programs in 1994. Due to rapid growth of the microfinance programs, in 1997 "Swanirbhar Gosthi" was formally established to provide 'Savings based Credit' to the individuals. 'Ashok Nilay', a separate registered society, was formed in 2003 to facilitate the community development programs of VSSU, which include a crèche program, primary school and scholarship support, as well as healthcare, sanitation and social forestry programs.
