Established in 1963, Bharat Vikas Parishad is a service-cum-sanskar oriented, non-political, socio-cultural voluntary organisation. It is dedicated to the development and growth of our country in all fields of human endeavour – cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual – by promoting a sense of patriotism, national unity and integrity.
On the birth centenary of Swami Vivekanand i.e. on 12th January, 1963, the Citizens Council set up by leading industrialists and social reformers like late Lala Hans Raj and Dr. Suraj Prakash, initially to mobilise citizens efforts to fight the Chinese attack, was renamed as Bharat Vikas Parishad. It is thus motivated and guided by the ideals and teachings of Swami Vivekanand.
Bharat Vikas Parishad was registered as a Society under the Societies Registration Act 1860 on the 10th July, 1963
Our Vision is development and growth of Bharat, in all fields of human endeavour – cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual culminating in Swasth-Samarth-Sanskarit Bharat i.e. physically, economically and morally strong India.
Our Mission is to organise the elite, intellectuals and the well-to-do citizens and to motivate them to serve our poor, disabled, illiterate and ignorant brethren not as an act of charity but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition of service as duty and to transmit our cultural values to the younger generation.
The action plan for implementation of Parishad’s policies and programmes is executed through the following sutras (maxims):
Aim of most NGOs is socialization where public service is merely a cosmetic affair which has no deep impact on society. However, fellowship in the Parishad is only a means to an end and not the end. Activities of Bharat Vikas Parishad are comprehensive and aim at multifaceted development of the society combining equally both sanskar and sewa aspects with capacity building of those served.
Bharat Vikas Parishad is a service-cum-sanskar oriented non-political socio-cultural family-based voluntary organisation, where both husband and wife join as members to serve the society.
The members of the Parishad meet their own expenses while participating in its activities and also contribute towards administrative expenses of the organisation. Funds collected for projects and programmes are kept separately and are spent 100 per cent exclusively for the designated purposes.
Parishad lays emphasis on developing the competence of the beneficiaries through their involvement so that they are no longer dependent on charity and lead a dignified and honourable life.
