A few social workers while working with the downtrodden and the marginalized communities found that the people they were working with are living under pathetic conditions. These communities are trapped under vicious circle of poverty. Also their awareness level was quite low and they considered it as their fate and were totally hopeless for any change in it. these social workers believed in the "Establishment of an exploitation free society". For the same Paryavaran Evam Prodyogiki Utthan Samiti (PEPUS) was established and registered in 1990 under Societies Registration Act, 1860, having FCRA .
PEPUS firmly believes that all the sections of the society must be self reliant and at the same time inter and intra dependency should be there.
PEPUS is regularly striving for building and strengthening capacities of Community Level Institutions like Self Help Groups, Community Based Organizations, with participatory approach.
PEPUS is also providing its inputs in different ways for strengthening the migrant worker community and their left out families. All these efforts have been made in rural working areas of total of 170 Gram Panchayats of four blocks namely Naugarh (Chandauli), Kaudihar (Allahabad), Bihar (Pratapgarh) and Muratganj (Kaushambi) Uttar Pradesh.
