GRAMIN to ensure socio-economic development of Assam by 2020 AD would like to ensure complete mobilization of its resources – natural as well as human resources by providing cost effective, sustainable economic empowerment and health and educational services to the weaker section in general and women, children and unemployed youth in particular.
Our vision is to make the people of Assam socially conscious economically strong and physically sound by eradicating illiteracy poverty and poor health. We also envisage making Assam a model state for rural entrepreneurship.
