Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

Vanvasi Seva Kendra has an interesting genesis. The underdeveloped Kaimur plateau area of Bihar attracted the attention of Late Jay Prakash Narayan and some of his associates in course of drought and famine relief work through Bihar Relief Committee during 1966-67. Inhuman coercive measures adopted by the Govt. officials and money lenders for recovery of loans from the famine hit tribal population of Adhaura towards the end of 1967 came to J.P.’s notice and he inspired his associates to establish Vanvasi Seva Kendra(V.S.K.) for sustained service and upliftment of local forest dwellers and tribals. Thus, Vanvasi Seva Kendra came into existence in 1968 and was registered in 1969 as a voluntary organisation under Societies Registration Act, 1860
