Sarvik Vivekananda Gram Seva Sanstha is the brain child of Srimat Swami Shashankanandaji Maharaj, the then Principal of Samaj Sevak Sikshan Mandir, Belur Math, Howrah.

The idea is to inspire people, – especially the distressed, the poor, undeveloped, unemployed and uneducated, to achieve the qualities of a human being who can solve their problems through perseverance, sincerity, intent, devotion and honesty.
