Goal:  

To empower poorest and vulnerable communities to deal with their own resources and practices, for seeking sustainable livelihood, quality education, improved health, hygiene and adequate nutrition to all, especially women and children for a dignified living.

Mission:  
GMKS strives for a vibrant and prosperous tribal society in which people can develop their own capabilities and manage resources to cater larger needs of the sustainable development process.
Water Resource Management And Development
People's access to water is the biggest problem in this tribal region. The rainfall in the region is relatively low and highly erratic. The rainwater is available only for 45 days in the whole year.And rest of the months in the year remains dry. During rainy days, the water flows down heavily to plain areas from these hills. Sometimes, the intensity of the water remains so high that washes
away lands and crops of the region destroying valuable properties and other close belongings.Gandhi Manav Kalyan Society started its interventions in most of the villages in the blocks. The organization is engaged into a large-scale land and water restoration works in Kotra block by involving local tribal communities to plan, implement and manage their own development programmes. Most of the programmes were actually managed through community and village organizations.
Under this Water Resource Management and Development programme, the organization helps the people to construct water harvesting structures, loose stone check dams, gully plucks and community wells. Acres of lands are undertaken for soil conservation. The soil and water conservation works in the villages has immensely helped to raise the level of ground water of the wells up to 6 to 8 feet.
Under this programme, GMKS has so far constructed 27 water harvesting structures, 650 loose stone check dams and 1300 gully plucks in the villages. In an average the level of ground water has increased by 1½-2 feet in each and every well constructed in the villages
