About Us

A Brief History of the Organization
 
In 1987, Kashinath Halder sought villagers from five different communities to join with him in what would be the precursor to the organization known as HRVS.
 
Mr. Halder then formed a social development club with a total membership of 35. Each month the members paid monthly dues, each according to their means, in order to fulfill their social development ideologies.
 
The club planted trees, set up creche, pre-primary schools, Yoga classes and promoted health awarness programme with the interest of the local communities, at heart. When Kashinath Haider went on a mission to secure government funds for further develoment project, he quickly found that the position of "beggar" was better than him. With a lack of financial support from the government or elsewhere, growth of the fledgling organization came to a standstill.
 
During February, 2003, Kashinath Haider exchanged dialogue with one poor village shop keeper and discovered the man was paying a loan with as much as high 8% interest per month for the use of small loan amount for his shop. The shop owner was having problems with the lender and was in an undersirable situation. Seeing the futility of the men's predicament, Kashinath Haider approached a whole sale shop keeper for supply to goods to the poor village shop keeper and stands as guarantor and assured to collect weekly payments form the said shop owner so that the entire loan amount is repaid with in one year on a weekly basis. Thus, the shop keeper becomes the owner of his own small 1 business, reserving all profit for himself & repaid the loan in time.
 
This activities, which in turn become not only driving force for the organization, but also a sustainable manner to generate funds for community development.
