Our Origin
A group of young and committed activists came together and expressed the desire of promoting social organization for up-liftment of deprived communities in rural and urban slums. They decided to promote an NGO to break through the conventional functions of NGO by adopting different strategic plans in order to make people as ‘subjects ‘in the process of new paradigm of development. Theycoined our NGO as RISE and evolved a set of principles, values and focused areas of people constituency. Very broadly intend to work with marginalized and vulnerable groups in the society.
