Manob Sakti Unnayan Kendro (MSUK) is an NGO with difference. It was established in 1998 by a group of distinguished persons including reputed economists, scientists, medical doctors, educationalists, lawyers, agriculturists, and health management experts. The idea of formation of MSUK was an outgrowth of our concerns about arsenic catastrophe and associated human distress and deprivation.

MSUK believes in human development; in transforming human deprivation into human development. MSUK believes that human potentials are unlimited which can be realized if conducive environment is ensured. MSUK’s philosophy embodies protection and promotion of basic human needs and rights. This is a continuous process aiming at broadening the scopes for freedom-mediated development.
