Samajik Shaikshanik Vikas Kendra (SSVK) was registered as a society in 1986. Shri Deepak Bharti, the founder of this organisation, had his initiation into social committment in the course of the 1974 students’ movement that broke out all over Bihar. Subsequently, he stayed in student politics involved in issue-based rather than party-based activity. In 1982 he took to journalistic activism, starting off with a daily called Janmat in Dhanbad. In 1984 he moved to Madhubani and launched a weekly called Samachar Darpan from there. Financial difficulties led to the winding up of this weekly. Next, he worked as a journalist for the Patliputra Times, Navbharat Times and Hindustan. As a journalist, Shri Bharti, consistently focused on issues relevant to the welfare of the deprived and marginalised sections of society. Moved by the phenomena of discrimination, deprivation and disintegration of the society as a whole and inspired by the ideals of Jai Prakash Narain and Mahatma Gandhi, he, along with other young minds, formally registered SSVK under the Societies Registration Act. 21, 1860. Its registration under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) of Government of India followed subsequently in 1990.

SSVK has been working with the most depressed sections of the rural society for their all round development and mainstreaming since its inception in 1986. SSVK is working to empower the most downtrodden and marginalised people, especially women, in one of India's poorest states, Bihar. SSVK's development work aims to build assets, reduce poverty, increase capacity for new livelihoods, strengthen local democracy and reduce injustice.  SSVK, and its community network Lok Shakti Sangathan (LSS), work intensively with socially and economically depressed rural communities, particularly the Dalits, in Madhubani, Darbhanga, Saharsa, Madhepura and Supaul districts. Over the years the organization has  geographically extended its coverage around mobilisation of identical target groups on right based issues to 14 other districts of Bihar(India).
