    With an increasingly significant role being played by the voluntary sector in the country in addressing age-old problems of poverty, illiteracy and exploitation, there is a greater need to understand the processes of emergence and growth of organizations in this sector. A considerable number of researchers have studied the functioning and contribution of various non-government organizations. However, most of the studies are about successful NGOs – organizations in the voluntary sector which have already arrived and have become well-known. The present study documents the process of emergence of a new NGO, SIDH (Society for Integrated Development of Himalayas) which has just completed three years of its existence. This report traces the genesis of SIDH, its objectives and activities at the nascent stage, its strengths, problems and difficulties, and some dilemmas and tough choices that confront the organization at the present stage of its growth.
