Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission
The twin organisations of Ramakrishna Math & Ramakrishna Mission (having branches all over India as well as other parts of the World) bearing the name of Sri Ramakrishna, the prophet of harmony of all religions, was started by Swami Vivekananda in May 1897
The Ramakrishna Mission was duly registered in 1909 under Society Registration Act XXI of 1860 (Reg. No. 1971/3 of 1909-10)
At present the Ramakrishna order has 191 centres of which 39 are outside India.
These branches are engaged in diverse activities in the field of Medical, educational, cultural, social, spiritual, rural and tribal upliftment, relief and rehabilitation (Disaster Management)
Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Morabadi, Ranchi
This centre at Morabadi was established in 1927 by Srimat Swami Vishuddhanandaji Maharaj ( the eight President of the Ramakrishna Order ) as a branch centre of Ramakrishna Mission.
Divyayan Krishi Vigyan Kendra
In early Sixties when Ranchi and its adjoining district were in the grip of severe drought, Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama, Morabadi, organised a relief work for the distressed poor. During that period it was strongly realized that unless the poor and illiterate farmers are trained in need based agriculture and allied technologies supported by group action they can not be made self-reliant and also would never be able to counter similar adverse condition in future. In order to fulfill the above requirements ‘Divyayan’ (meaning Divine Way) a novel integrated rural development model was conceived and launched by this centre in 1969.
A residential training centre for tribal and rural youth in agriculture and its related activities was started in 1969 under the name Divyayan.
In 1977 Divyayan was recognized by ICAR to establish and run a Krishi Vigyan Kendra.
For the period 1996-97 it was awarded as the best KVK.
