Origin and mission

The Indian NGO ‘Village Reconstruction Organisation’ was founded in 1971 by Belgian Jesuit Michael Windey, following Gandhi’s Sarvodaya concept. VRO liberates the poorest populations in the most underdeveloped areas of India.

At the start, the emphasis was on establishing village communities which were socially and economically well-organised, and supported by a network of social services. The Indian government increasingly intervenes in the construction, education and health of these villages, but VRO continues to encourage the inhabitants to take control of their own destiny and evaluate what the government is offering them.
