Margdarshak Development Services (MDS)
“Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid it is man-made and can be removed by the actions of human beings…….Nelson Mandela”
Driven by belief that it is humanly possible to eradicate poverty from the society in which we exist, Margdarshak Development Services was established in 2007 by Rahul Mittra & Arup Baruah – the co-founders of Margdarshak group. Registered under the section 25 of Indian Companies Act, MDS empowers the poor and marginalised communities in accessing public and private welfare services for enabling them in achieving a more qualitative life for themselves. The organisation is engaged in implementation of social welfare and corporate social responsibility programmes as well. Our work spans a wide spectrum of interventions including - livelihood strengthening, value chain development, agriculture development, skill based training and SHG-Bank Linkage. Reaching out to over 20,000 families in various parts of India, our work is driven by the immense belief in our vision of eradicating poverty by holistic empowerment of communities in a sustainable manner.
