SAMAJ UTTHAN YUWA KENDRA
Samaj Utthan Yuwa Kendra (SUYUK) is an organization initiated as a club and leads by youths. It is a community based non-political, non-religious and nonprofit making organization. SUYUK was registered in District Administration Office, Dhanusha in 2058 B.S. (2001 A.D.) and in the same year affiliated with Social Welfare Council. SUYUK was founded by youths of the then Jamuniya tole of Gopalpur VDC, Dhaunsha with determination to develop their village by themselves without waiting for external support. SUYUK performed small activities in Gopalpur such as mobilizing community to building roads, irrigation cannel and raising voice to demand for basic services such as electricity etc. Later on, it rapidly expanded to other areas. The organization has been successful in implementing program related to women empowerment, ethnic group awareness, child mortality reduction, poverty alleviation, gender equity, health, sanitation and hygiene so on. Along with various social services SUYUK has also provided employment to various Dalit and
Indigenous people. It has formulated strong commitment towards the quality and satisfaction of work and its accountability towards the community. It was initiated as a youth club, which was later formally registered as NGO. This transition from a small club to registered NGO was felt to address greater expectation and trust from community that could not be adequately fulfilled by continuing as a club.
