The ViKAS initiative is a novel approach to engaging young university students and young professionals in applied research to develop model ViKAS Dev SEVA centres that can engage local leadership in the coming years.
There are also independent experiential education, research, volunteer work, and eco-tourism intiatives in the south Indian states of Karnataka and Kerala.
Proposed ViKAS Dev Centre facilities may, in the long run, include, a volunteer-interns house, a projects coordination office, an Education and career Resource Centre, an ecoStore / REstore, a public health awareness centre and first aid centre,
By 2025, we hope that these ViKAS Dev Centres can be run directly by the village communities that we work in, as a platform to help them address some of the social, environmental, educational and health issues in their own communities.
