The NSVK project aims to empower and mainstream excluded and marginalised communities through effective advocacy.

The project's purpose is to mobilise communities and create advocacy to enable access to entitlements, right to life and livelihoods.

The NSVK project is working in 516 villages in the Giridih, Bokaro, Chatra, Palamu and Gumla districts of Jharkhand


NVSK aims

  • Formation of community-based organisations (CBOs) to monitor land entitlements, livelihood security and women's participation at the village level.

  • The CBO on land entitlement will advocate for inclusion of community representatives, especially women, from the women's group at different levels of the FRA and MGNREG committees.


About NSVK

Naya Sawera Vikas Kendra (NSVK) was founded in 1999. The organisation works on people's rights, justice and livelihood issues with scheduled castes (SC) and scheduled tribe (ST) communities. Since its inception, NSVK has been operating in more than 150 villages in Giridhi, Koderma and Hazaribagh.

From early 2000 the organisation had networked and worked with people's movements in Bihar and Jharkhand and in 2003 NVSK increased its coverage to nine more districts in Jharkhand.


Network partners

We encourage projects to collaborate with like-minded organisations to deliver the best results in the designated project area. These collaborations are called network projects. NSVK is implementing the project with one network partner:

  • Samajik Chetna Tantra.
