AZAD VIKALANG KALYAN SAMITI (AVKS) came in to existence to safeguard and welfare of the disadvantaged and differently abled people. It came into existence by a group of differently abled persons for upliftment of differently abled and disadvantaged community. AVKS is a non-profitable, non-political, non-religious voluntary organization, registered under Madhya Pradesh Society Registration Act, 1973 since 2009 serving differently abled people, vulnerable families from most backward areas of Jhabua and Alirajpur districts of Madhya Pradesh.
It is also registered under Section 51 & 52 of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protections of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 initiated by Department of Social Welfare, Govt. of NCT of Delhi.
AVKS is striving to build hope among the disadvantaged people through developing opportunity of livelihood sources, awareness of social issue, health services, rehabilitation, promotion of education and vocational courses. We focus to establish a participatory and integrated approach to mainstream disable people towards dignified, self sustained and quality life.
By virtue of its nature of development work for differently abled community, AVKS is known for its participatory approach and operationalizing challenging work in backward tribal areas where the communities are disadvantaged and distant from mainstream development process. These areas often stand low on development indicators and lack basic infrastructure for essentials like healthcare, education or livelihoods.
AVKS vehemently undertakes strategic interventions to raise development indicators in such areas with initiatives in vocational training, health, education, livelihoods, entrepreneurship and women's empowerment.
