and urbanization after independence, the Socio-cultural identity
of the people of Chotanagpur Plateau was being eroded fast. To check
this cultural erosion and protect the human rights the people of this region felt the
need of formation of a Socio – cultural organization and
this need gave birth to C.S.S. on 8th May 1968. The organization was registered under
Societies Registration Act, 1860 on 11.08.1975. The organization
mobilized its resources and didn't accept Grant in Aid till
1988 for promoting voluntarism. After policy level changes in the
year 1988, we started accepting During its early years
Arts & Culture was used successfully as a medium of
"Transformation" and to reach illiterate people of the region.
In the year 1992 activities of the Organization were
extended in the areas of Community Development, Health,
Self-Governance, Rehabilitation of persons with disability,
Agriculture, Human Resource Development IGP and Advocacy. With
the objective of addressing specific needs of the most
vulnerable groups of the Society i.e. Women, Children, Poor,
Tribal, Persons with disability etc. different wings of the
organization were established in 1995. In the same year the
Organization was registered under FCRA.

and conveyed our message through issue based songs, drama,
documentaries, films, literature etc.
