  Operational Area  
 

At present, nearly 78 per cent population of Uttar Pradesh resides in 97,942 villages of the State. Nearly half of these villages have population less than 1,000. Most of the population residing in the villages is plagued with illiteracy, poverty, malnutrition, debt, unemployment and social bad customs.

SVS headquarters of SVS is situated in a remote village in Aligarh district. This place is between the national capital New Delhi and the Taj city Agra, and is about 70 km from both Agra and Aligarh.  The organisation is active in a remote, underdeveloped and backward area of Aligarh, known as khaddar area of the Yamuna river. The ambitious project of Uttar Pradesh Government – Taj Express Highway – will pass through this area.

The main occupations of the people of the area are agriculture, animal husbandry and related cottage industries. Most of the population in the area includes marginal farmers and agriculture labour. Birth rate, infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate are quite high. Bad customs like female foeticide after sex determination tests are spreading fast as a result of which the area is registering lowest sex ratio in the district and it is further going down. Because of  declining  brotherhood, enmity among people is increasing. And so are increasing purdah system, child marriage, death feast, dowry, etc.

Most of the population in the area belongs to Scheduled Castes and Other Backward Classes. Yet while struggling with the problems, the farmers, labourers and people in general are quite laborious and studious. Because of enmity, corruption is spreading. Though the indebted farmers are making noise and committing suicide as in other parts of the country, they are being trapped in a vicious circle of poverty and indebtedness.

This underdeveloped area is neglected by the Central Government, State Government, donor agencies and voluntary organisations. As a result, the area is lagging in the race of development with each passing day.
