Organisation Profile


In the late eighties, a bunch of educated rural youths developed keen interest towards protecting Forest from massive deforestation in the tribal belt of kapilas forest range. Partial success of this movement transformed this small voluntary body into a registered society and it began taking up various issues and development activities. From 1989 to 1993 process continued in a low key, then after organization started taking up non formal education, promotion of small family norm, organizing women to form SHG, organizing forest protection group, farmers group ect  with support from govt and non govt donors. After 1999 super cyclone USS changed its gear and shifted to Disaster management and HIV/AIDS care and Support and expanded its activities to other districts. USS has worked extensively in relief, rehabilitation, reconstruction, land development, environment restoration, livelihood support and IGP activities for next 15 years with support from multiple national and international donors and UN agencies. Initially USS started its office in a small rented building in a rural village in the year 1989. After working continuously for 30 years and successfully completing projects in multiple thematic areas in various districts of Odisha, now USS has its administrative  and coordination (head office) in Cuttack city with branch offices in other districts with own land and all other necessary assets and technical equipment. Starting with a bunch of youth volunteers, now USS is presently having 97 regular staffs.   Currently USS is implementing projects supported by state Govt., corporate donors and Private donors. Coping with the changing time and demand, USS has always transformed its strategies, came out with perspective plans ,developed the capacity of its team and adopted new technical innovations.

It is a great pleasure for us to share with you about Utkal Sevak Samaj (USS) through our website. USS has completed 25 years of work and during this journey we have enjoyed successes and faced many challenges. These years of journey with ups and downs have been a huge learning experience for us.

In past two and half decades, USS has taken up many program initiatives based on the needs of the community it has been working with. The key areas includes promoting health, education, ensuring livelihood and managing emergencies like flood and cyclone.

Health promotion is key to sustainable development and it is a priority area of our intervention till today. The organization since its inception has been engaged in maternal and child health program and still keeps continuing to contribute to the State’s initiatives. HIV and AIDS has been one of our key interventions for the past decade and it is a major area of our work in current programmes. Besides, the organization is implementing other health and development programs related to TB, adolescent health, empowerment of women, livelihood promotion and poverty reduction in an integrated manner to mitigate the problems of the people in the operational area.

The commitment of the USS’s team of workers is inspiring who have often given much more than what was expected. The grantees and donors have always placed their faith in USS’s ability. Credibility, based on transparency, is the main strength of USS that it has always been striving to practice the best norms in human relations and financial management.

I thank all those who support, appreciate, encourage and promote USS thereby promoting the well being of the marginalized.
