VOSARD (Voluntary Organization for Social Action and Rural Development) was established in 1998 with the aim of transforming the lives of the poor, marginalized and the under-privileged groups in the most backward and remote hilly areas of Idukki District in the state of Kerala (India).
The organization is functioning under the auspices of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) Congregation. Since the beginning, the organization has been working with the poor and weaker sections in the society through Self-Help initiatives and capacitating them to achieve a sustainable development, irrespective of caste, creed, or religion.

VOSARD strives to promote a society where the marginalized and underprivileged sections are empowered to bring about positive changes in their lives.
