About Us

Social Organisation on Various Aspects (SOOVA) with definite objective and implementation strategy is an initiative of social activist and development professional who joined their hands with other like minded social workers in Odisha during 2000 to work among the marginalized communities in the tribal area of Mayurbhanj district. In last one decade our prime focus of the organization has been on empowerment of Rural Women, Scheduled Castes communities, Scheduled Tribes people and other Socio-economic backward and deprived communities of the district. SOOVA has closely worked with district and state Government in its diversified program implementation.

SOOVA has the advantage of selecting particular places and communities for innovative projects in advance and specify the length of time which they will be supporting the project - overcoming some of the shortcomings that governments face in this respect.

Why We are Different

SOOVA’s deep-down focus is on the indigent, impecunious, ostracized and abominated Tribal Community. Its commitments for the above segment of the populace are reflected through its actions in the real field. Maintaining extremely low-profile without publicity, premeditated visibility and glorification of self, the organization works and achievements speak for itself. So, are the people identifying themselves with SOOVA as their organization. Over a period of little more than a decade and half, SOOVA has become a peoples’ organization in all its intervention areas and on its own merit.
