Vikas Sahyog Pratishthan has been working towards building a sustainable economy that is ecologically sensitive and promotes equality among all members of a community. In order to achieve this, we have been providing financial, technical and institutional support to the poor, marginal and distressed farmers and women, through strategically designed interventions.

With the help of Rangoonwala Foundation India Trust (RFIT) and EdelGive Foundation, we are implementing projects in 90 villages in Vidarbha region’s Buldhana and Amravati districts. The initiative aims at empowering the rural communities and consists of activities designed for capacity building, skill training, awareness about community and individual rights, and implementation of government’s development schemes.

As part of the initiatives, we implemented models like Parisar Baug to promote sustainable agricultural practices. A total of 500 Parisar Baugs have been established, which helps each beneficiary save approximately Rs. 2370. 

We have conducted training on Goat rearing and poultry farming, which has led to establishment of 6 goat rearing enterprises and 200 backyard poultry units. This has benefited around 800 SHG members. 

VSP also aims to bring land under proper irrigation process and increase the production for generation of income. In a bid to achieve this, VSP provides agricultural equipment such as sprinkler units, spiral separators, etc. to farmers.

In addition to these projects, VSP has launched Project Aarambham in association with Global Synergizers. The program aims to provide a sustainable livelihood for marginalized families using an environment friendly mechanism. The program identifies 30 deserving candidates from each taluka who are provided with an e-rickshaw to earn a source of livelihood. The EMI and maintenance charges are collected on a daily basis. The overall objective of the program is to reach out to 1000 families (30 families per taluka/ block) and provide them with sustainable livelihood options and to drive a project through a collaborative model for making a larger impact.

VSP developed a way of enhancing the quality of education system, practiced in rural parts of Maharashtra. We have adopted a needs-based criteria approach that caters to holistic development of the child. VSP’s education program not only focuses on skills and knowledge but also ethics and values.

The pedagogy motivates, reflects and responds to the needs and expectations of each individual child’s overall development, that builds the foundation of community development at large. 
VSP carries out this program through the following activities:

     - Age-appropriate teaching
     - Learning enhancement for covering deficit Social and Financial Literacy
     - Financial inclusiveness through school collaborations Youth Development
     - Leadership Development through progressive values

We have addressed learning deficits in various villages via 25 Learning Centers and also supported 40 schools in tackling important issues such as girls’ school drop-out rate.
Language is a key constraint for NT/DNT and tribal children accessing education. As a result, we appoint teachers who can communicate in multiple languages. Also, more than 70 % of the children in schools are not learning according to their age. This creates a need for age-appropriate teaching, which we cater to.
