The organization has its roots in the non formal group Abhivyakti that was started in the year 1998 by interested youth for social cultural activities to fill up the cultural void in Giridih which has glorious past of its cultural heritages. The initial activities of organization revolved round Srijan Mahotsav, Natya Mahotsava, and academic programmes; and gradually increased its involvement with development mainstream that led to formal registration of this groups as Abhivyakti Foundation.

extended area coverage is in the fields of capacity building, documentation, awareness activities, study and participatory research. The organization relies on youth voluntarism for social action through its two wings Abhivyakti Artists Association for Generations (AAAG) that was founded to promote music, theatre and fine arts for social advocacy and Abhivyakti Youth Association (AYA) that looks after volunteer drives. In this process we have been working with college pass out youth who act as change catalyst and Abhivyakti provides them necessary inputs to build up their personality, orientation and capacity. While working with them we usually provide them challenges in form of smaller projects for development of IEC materials that could help the civil society organizations in mass education. We only provide them an opportunity to explore the ideas and a range of reference and some study materials from our library, interviewing with other groups and peer based learning. Besides IEC some of the interested youth have also associated in the GIS based micro-planning work and some study work where the organization has facilitated the process. This helps them synthesize the ground realities and build up their own perception and response to the issues of social concern. The involvement of youth not only associate them with the local history, culture, values and ethos but also help them to keep away from substance abuse, emotional disturbances and builds up self confidence and esteem. After getting their jobs they are working in their own capacity and occasionally involve themselves with organizational activities, when they are back at home. The core programmatic activities of the organization revolve around community health, education, capacity building, mass motivation and cultural events. The operational focus of Abhivyakti Foundation aims To promote self initiatives and role models within the society To mobilize the community and build their capacity towards sustainable development with pilot action, To promote indigenous practices with right balance of scientific approach.
