VISHWAS: (Vivekananda Institute of Social Health Welfare and Service):
        Among the Abujhmarh tribal, the woman is considered as a partner in economic Endeavour rather than a burden on the family. So, once they are educated, girls can bring about much-needed social change rather speedily. Swamiji prophesied- “If you teach a boy, you teach only one individual; whereas by teaching a girl you teach a whole family". To achieve an all-round development and to provide health-care and socio-economic uplift of woman and child of the people, especially of the tribal, VISHWAS was formed. It is a sister institution managed by the devotees and well-wishers of Ramakrishna Mission. In Abujhmarh its developmental activities are being carried out in collaboration with the Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Narainpur. Its activities in brief are:

a) Maa Sarada Vidyamandir, Orchha :
VISHWAS is running a free residential Middle School at Orchha inside Abujhmarh since June 1995 for Maria girls. This year the number of students is 180. It also imparts necessary value based education to tribal girls, besides making them physically fit and mentally agile.

b) Maa Sarada Kanya Chhatrawas:
VISHWAS runs 6 hostels for Tribal girls of Abujhmarh. At present there are 377 girls in these hostels studying at Vivekananda Vidyapeeth, Narainpur and at 5 Ashrama Schools inside Abujhmarh run by the Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama.
