To help common people meet the challenge of social transformation and especially through making them aware of the causes, process and consequences of transformation, at the local level, a group of dedicated Social worker conceived People’s Council for Social Welfare (PCSW) as a small grass-root level organization, in the year 1999.
It started working in the rural areas of Khurda district. Initially, it started as a small movement of the local youths who started a library in the village to provide library service to the local people. This small forum was called Mukhasala Pathagar.
