Since its inception Vikash has been working with the disadvantaged communities in their effort towards development. The first task was to integrate the leprosy affected persons in the society and extend support for their physical and economic rehabilitation. Vikash had led the campaign on leprosy elimination all over the state of Odisha. While working for the rehabilitation of leprosy patients in the society, Vikash felt that there is an acute need of help in rehabilitation of other disabled persons and started working for them.
A person in a protected and isolated institution usually develops a culture of dependency. Therefore Vikash implements its activities for rehabilitation of the disabled persons in the community itself.
