SYS started as an Activist Organization during the year 1986 which tried to visualize the problems of locality; feelings of the people at micro level and raise voice for people.
But in due course of time, the spirit of activism got over-shadowed by the harsh reality of people’s minimum materialistic gain that essentially ensures ones own survival, witnessing the fast changes and the aftermath of changing attitudes, there arised the need for a change in the operational modalities to emphasize more on developmental aspects.
By the way, retaining the original broader attitude of “Serving People’s Purpose” – the eventual metamorphose took place in the organization to transform that basically and integrally as a “Voluntary Development Organization” to cater to macro level and give specific and integrated approach to development activities from scattered welfare approach.
SYS thus got its Legal Status during 1987 as a Non Political and Non Profit-Seeking Voluntary Development Organization under the Society’s Registration Act XXI of 1860 bearing No.1616 – 199 of 1987-88 Dated 21.12.1987
The genesis of SYS reflects more a process – i.e. of proven eventual developments characterized by change in attitude and mode of action towards rights/entitlements and duties/responsibilities among the downtrodden deprived mass (the neglected mass) than a mere showdown of activities undertaken for the cause of those neglected mass in the name of their development.
