Gram Vikas Trust

Hailing from a rural background, the founder of Gram Vikas Trust (GVT) was no stranger to hardships. Ramesh Kasondra, himself, has undergone several economic and social challenges.

In order to convert his experience and exposure to support and uplift his society, he established Gram Vikas Trust. GVT now operates in more than 100 villages of Bharuch district with the key areas being child rights, education, health and hygiene, sustainable livelihood, and women empowerment. GVT's belief that knowledge is the path to self-development has re-enrolled thousands of school drop-outs back to school. To promote an equitable living environment, GVT gives vocational training to hundreds of students each year along with awareness on health and hygiene.

The organization was actively involved in constructing and renovating the sanitation facilities of the Government Schools in and around their district. GVT is committed to creating a strong and independent society without inequality. It aims for a society free of discrimination and where everybody enjoys equal opportunities.
