Since its days of inception, Vikash has been working to extend help to disadvantaged communities in their effort towards development. The first task was to integrate the leprosy affected persons in the society and extend them 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 leprosy patients and for their rehabilitation in the society Vikash also felt the necessity to help in rehabilitation of other disabled persons and started working for them.
When we try to develop a person in a protected and isolated institution he usually develops a culture of dependency. Therefore Vikash implements its activities for rehabilitation of the disabled persons in the community itself.
