CGVS has attempted to bridge the three divides: Knowledge Divide, Economic Divide and Social Divide in the society through its programs. BGVS started with attempts to bridge the knowledge Divide but became increasingly involved in closing Economy Divide and Social Divide too.
Spreading scientific knowledge and scientific world vision amongst the people, working for literacy, continuing education, basic education, policy studies etc. are to close the Knowledge Divide. Efforts in watershed management, technology development, local area planning, formation of Self Help Groups, development of micro enterprises etc. are efforts to close Economic Divide. Children's Science Festivals, Women Science (Samata) Festivals, Gyan Vigran Vidyalaya (Wisdom Schools) Movement etc. all are efforts to bridge the Social Divide.
