Founded by Shri Kedar Prasad Shrimal and some energetic youth of Village Thali Gramodaya Samajik Santhan was established on 1988-89. The cause which evoked these youth was the painstaking devastation flood in 1981 which destroyed many villages and took several lives. Much organization came forward for short term relief packages but things were different behind the veil. In this situation the rural community was deprived of basic amenities. Rural statistics showed more than seventy-five percent downfalls in agricultural production. Production from cattle also became 10-15 percent. Even lack of employment and nutritional opportunities resulted in havoc migration of villagers towards metropolitans. Illiteracy and immense crisis of healthy atmosphere were at its peak. . Shree Kedar Prasad Shrimal who was working with different voluntary organization felt the pain and experience that critical situation. He took the first initiative and collected few youth to shape a new platform from where they could organize the fragmented society. With respect to the issue they conducted some meetings with the victims of devastation and collaboratively they founded the platform –‘GRAMODAYA SAMAJIK SANSTHAN’
