About Us

Mount Valley Development Association (MVDA) is a civil society actor that works toward improving the quality of life of rural people by promoting livelihood initiatives along with early child care and girl child education. The idea of MVDA was inspired by Sarvodaya Movement and its approach in Himalayas. In early 90s, poor economic conditions and slow pace of development in Bhilangna valley of Tehri Garhwal district compelled MVDA to work for the economic empowerment of the community. The association organizes women, youths, and children to form different community-based organizations to link with different government schemes such as bank linkages, employment and livelihood schemes. It advocates for effective governance by empowering women to take active participation in local self-governance. The organization formally came into existence in 1995 and registered under Society Registration Act 1860.
