Our History

Background

 Practical ways to positive change of life – Realizing potentials. Surya Samajik Sewa Sangh (4S) has been devoted to achieving large scale, rapid change by working with individuals, families, communities and institutions to overcome poverty. Our approach is comprehensive – with financial services, capacity building and livelihood development as well as health education and governance – enabling people to realize their potential though continuous innovation to introduce more cost-effective solutions and adapting them for greater effectiveness, we scale up for immediate and sustainable change. We are pioneering a new kind of organization which integrates development programmes with social enterprises and enables 4S and individuals to become self-reliant. While using our knowledge and expertise, we are constantly learning from the people and communities where we work. The initiative has been promoting community self-reliance since its founding in 1994.

The organization continues to work towards its mission to promote volunteerism, peace, reconciliation, reconstruction and development through the participatory and inclusive mobilization and empowerment of youth, women and children in the community, primarily in Jumla but also in other districts of Karnali, with the vision, capacity and commitment to bringing about sustainable and equitable social change. For the past several years, we had been working to unify our efforts to present ourselves as one entity with a consistent vision, image and voice in order to translate objectives into actions. The thematic areas of 4S have been narrowed down with the view to be more specialized and focused in the areas of our work. Periodic changes in the policies and strategy has been undertaken to harmonize governance practice.

4S is active through several activities for social change. Our headquarters in Jumla have been extensively engaged in implementing various community development programmes and projects in Jumla and Karnali. During this period we have worked with over 60,000 community members through the formation and strengthening of hundreds of local groups and institutions.  Interventions include creating an enabling environment to make people aware of and realize their economic, social and cultural potential as well as capacitating them, to identify such rights, and a feeling of sense of ownership over the local development programmes in their own areas rather than delivering social and economic services. In doing so, we don’t only fulfil our obligation to contribute to the mainstream development process of the country but also to mobilize the potential actors responsible for framing policies and intervening development programmes on all levels.
