Organisation History

In 1992 Lily Mathew and Dr. Neeti Bhai after their many years of work and experience in Bihar among poor people came over to Varanasi and began to organize the poor in and around Saranath. In 1994 they formed an association together with a few committed social activists and thinkers from Varanasi and got it registered under the name of Lok Chetna Samiti. Since then it has been actively involved in animating, educating, organizing and empowering the poor for their integral growth and participation in the ongoing process of community development.
