Gandhiji's voluntary organization provides a human touch. Humanity is the core of his mission. Man is a social being. Voluntary organization means, willingness to serve the poor and needy people. It is a spiritual quest. Service to man is service to God. Voluntary organization is spontaneous in its origin. Chakra for Gandhi is intimately connected to the village life. Gandhiji made Harijan uplift an integral part of the struggle for Swaraji. This paper contains a brief history of Gandhi's Voluntary Organizations, focusing on selected examples.
