" Overview

Gramin Vikas Trust (GVT) is a National Level Organization established by the Krishak Bharti Cooperative Limited (KRIBHCO) with the support of Government of India and Department for International Development (DFID), UK. GVT was started as a division of KRIBHCO to look after Eastern India Rainfed Projects (EIRFP) and Western India Rainfed Projects (WIRFP) in some states by forming several clusters in tribal areas for the upliftment of the tribals. However, with the passage of time, from 2010 onwards, GVT not only diversified its activities, but also its geographical presence. It started some new initiatives and activities in line with its mission and vision like undertaking skill development of rural youth in various trades, having good job opportunities in business houses, agri-business, market linkages to rural handicraft artisans etc.

The Basics

In spite of several Welfare Programmes, the condition of old age people is terrible particularly in rural areas and urban slums of Bharuch district. They don’t get respect from the younger people and are at the mercy of their children and relatives and are humiliated. Most people from this group are poor & underprivileged and face many problems for their survival. The economic crisis and inflation have increased their difficulties, as large numbers of families do not have means to support them. They have no access to health care and basic welfare needs. Gram Vikas Trust has decided to extend possible assistance to keep the old people in comfort to some extent on humanitarian grounds.
