About GMKS

Gandhi Manav Kalyan Society (GMKS), a well known developmental NGO of India, started its operation in the year 1985. It is essentially an NGO run by a group of members hailing from tribal community. Its activities spread into 10 districts of Rajasthan—a largest geographical and desert state of India. These districts are Udaipur, Pali, Jodhpur, Tonk, Sawai Madhopur, Jalore, Karoli, Dungarpur, Sirohi and chittorgarh. Some villages in these districts are most backward.

In most of these backward villages of the districts GMKS implemented a host of developmental programmes in close collaboration with 45 community based organizations.The society had a strong base in 800 odd villages and its services were being rendered to around 1 million populations of the state. Since inception GMKS has been playing a pivotal role in all round development of the tribal areas of Rajasthan especially in Udaipur region. Some of the developmental programmes it implemented through community-based networking organizations and a majority of the programmes it implemented through its own volunteers and staff. 

Gandhi Manav Kalyan Society’s recent direct intervention now reaches to 80 tribal villages of Jhadol and Kotra blocks of Udaipur district. Bhil, Gharasia and Kathodi are the most backward tribal communities of the region who are directly benefiting from the programmes and services being provided by Gandhi Manav Kalyan Society. At present, its services are being extended to around 1 lakh population of the two blocks. The society has a dedicated team of professionals drawn from various backgrounds and disciplines and 112 village-level volunteers spread in 80 odd villages.
