The idea to set up this society came after the biggest tragedy of the year 2013 i.e. ‘Kedarnath Tragedy’ in Uttarakhand. This became the huge disaster which almost destroyed every possible construction came to its path like buildings, roads, river side villages and lands which left the area more backward than ever and hence highly vulnerable. Members of CRPWS, some of whom are originally belong from these affected areas conducted research to know more about the status of communities that are living in mountains and they found some tribal regions where development is at its minimal level and since then they are working for regions like Rudraprayag and Jaunsar Bawar to make them sustainably develop by targeting the communities and children.
