Sita Gramodyog Vikas Sansthan
Jehanabad district came in existence in 1986. It was a sub-division of the Gaya since 1872. Due to lack of development activities, remoteness of the areas, people started migrating to different places for labour. The Secretary of organization SGVS (Sita Gramoudyog Vikas Sansthan), Sri Rabindra Sharma, who belongs to the Arwal Block of the district, was silently observing the growing menace of vulnerable situations of the area, while he was studying at Patna University in early 80s. At Patna Mr. Rabindra Sharma had got an opportunity to interact with the prominent Gandhian and Sarvodya Leaders. Being influenced with the Gandhian ideologies, he frequently started visiting and attending the meetings at Gandhian Nidhi Patna to search out the strains of any amicable solution of the problems being faced by the society from where he belongs. Interaction with prominent Gandhian leaders like Sidhraj Dhada, Thakurdas Bang Shivanand Bhai has given him a new insight to visualize the problem. After regular consultation with these people he came to the logical conclusion that lack of employment opportunities and low agricultural return are the basic triggering factors behind this social chaos. Based on Gandhian ideology he decided to register a voluntary organization in the name of Sita Devi, a prominent social activist of the area who had lead the fight for the cause of poor and underprivileged people.
