There are hundreds of Indian organizations in this country. We realize that true strength comes through working together in a Mission mode. It is about time that we bring these NPOs together to form a critical mass and create an effective force for promoting sustainable development in India. What we need is a powerful coalition of NPOs with a Vision, Mission and active membership as well as the means to promote its Mission. Our Vision is:
All the wealth in the world cannot help one Indian village, if the people are not taught to help themselves. Our work should be mainly education, both moral and intellectual...Educate the people, so that they may learn to be self-sufficient, frugal... If the poor cannot come for education, education should reach the poor.
"Let new India arise-let her arise out of the peasants' cottage, grasping the plough; out of the huts of fisherman,the cobbler, and the sweeper. Let her spring from the grocer's shop,from the oven of the fritter-seller." - Swami Vivekananda
