This year October 10th marks the beginning of Navratri, a Hindu Festival celebrating the triumph of good over evil.
Bhusura Mahila Vikas Samiti (BMVS) was registered as a society in 1988. The organizational leader had his initiation into social work as a staunch follower of the Ghandian Sarvodaya movement
in 1966. BMVS stands for the economic, social and political empowerment of the poor to ensure
their effective and equitable participation in the societal mainstream. The organization is at present
working in 210 villages in Muzaffarpur District of North Bihar. The target group of the organization
primarily consists of the socially and economically exploited women and children particularly from
the scheduled and backward castes. BMVS is working in the area of income generation, savings and credit programs through SHGs, mother and child health care, education (non-formal and
adult education), panchayati raj and disaster risk management.
