SmartVillages is a community based initiative of Samanvay.Com Welfare Society, primarily aimed to harness the benefits of information technology for the rural folks. The initiative is a community effort to mobilize the collective strengths of people from various streams and integrate it with information technology to provide benefits to the rural community.

Inspired by the Gandhian philosophy and thoughts, the SmartVillages Project was conceived to provide 'Global Means to the Local Needs' by launching the Portal www.smartvillages.org as the community forum. The Project aims to build a mass movement driven by communities by empowering them with knowledge and skills to take on the challenges in the information age.
