Rural Development

MANAVLOK is working with a vision of a holistic rural development approach. Our aim is to integrate rural development in the fields of health, education, watershed development, Sustainable Agriculture, old age care etc. We are bound to our vision of creating self-sustaining villages that will build our country's base and future strong and sustainable.

Community Kitchen

The initiative had a profound impact. It gave the villagers especially poor elderly people to get at least one-time meal. Realizing the hardships senior citizens had to face every day. MANAVLOK came up with the idea of initiating a kitchen to support and provide two-time meals to the villagers who are above 65 years with no source of income, people with disabilities, destitute, widows and elderly orphans.

Workshops for the Efficient Rural Development

MANAVLOK organizes various workshops for the people from work catchment regarding water conservation, organic farming, digital literacy, plastic eradication, tree plantation, etc. Also, various schemes for saving water, agriculture, soil conservation etc. are discussed in these workshops.

Capacity Building and Empowerment

MANAVLOK promotes income-generating programs to the marginal income population. We have vocational training centres for capacity building and empowerment among vulnerable groups in our society.


Through HelpAge India sponsorship, MANAVLOK had provided nutrition, cloth, medical treatment and medicines, etc. to 406+ senior citizens. There were twenty Self Help Groups of senior people. The recovery of loans given to eleven groups was smoothly repaid regularly. Regular meeting of the president and secretaries of the self-help groups was held

Livelihood Support

Manavlok has always focused on women's empowerment, emphasising the empowerment of widows and single women. To support their livelihood, 2 goats each have been distributed to 79 women.

Jansahayog (People’s Initiative to Fight Against Injustice)

MANAVLOK believes that advocacy is the process of community development through public protest against the misuse of public funds and untimely delivery of schemes by the concerned departments. MANAVLOK has a vibrant advocacy team “Jansahayog” to create awareness among people. Through MANAVLOK initiatives in advocacy, many of the unutilized government schemes have been utilized in the region. It is a branch of MANAVLOK for Social Action Project. It empowers BPL people and other vulnerable groups (Aged, Destitute, Deserted Women, and Handicapped).
