About Us
 
THE ORIGIN

With industrialization 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.

Why Arts & Culture

The success of any initiatives  largely depends how we pass our message. In 1968 the literacy level among the target group of the Organization was significantly low. Arts and Culture was selected as the  medium. We reached out to the people and conveyed our message through issue based songs, drama, documentaries, films, literature etc.
