In the year 1987-88, a few educated young people belongs to the Bishnupur District, Manipur analysed the situation and given a thought of the horrible future of the District as well as Manipur State and other parts of India. The young people were concerned for their own people with commitment. They started working with and sensitising the issues which are controlling their living standards.
Above all, the most rural areas were under developed and people needs Education, Good Health and Good Environment for the betterment and Development of the Society. Without any support from Government or any others’ support, the youths destined to work with people. The interaction with people has opened the eyes of Youth. In the beginning, resentment of people, Oppression of upper caste and class people has intensified the commitment and activities. They started believing that outside help is futile until & unless we build our capacities and be part of our own development. They changed their attitude and in turn started changing the attitude of people and established the Organisation.

Then, he was not asking to anybody in any matter and he started reading various books on related subjects. Lastly, he prepared himself all the documents, objectives of Organisation for registration under the Manipur Societies registration Act, 1989 (Act.
