Bharat Gyan Vigyan Samiti (BGVS) - India

Bharat Gyan Vigyan Samiti or Indian Organization for Learning and Science is "an ongoing crusade of science and literacy for national integration and self-reliance."

BGVS considers literacy as a starting point for social transformation and the crusade against illiteracy as a crusade against conditions that maintain illiteracy: a crusade against communalism, a crusade against dependence. It is a second independence struggle that seeks national integration and self-reliance, it is a struggle to make democracy meaningful to the millions.
