Immediately after the Civil War, in the Komi region, the establishment of public organizations solved the problems of education, enlightenment and upbringing of citizens of a new country. The experience of organizations that had existed before 1917 was employed. They had successfully established themselves for a long time and could contribute to building socialism and strengthening the power of the ruling Communist party. New public organizations were created in those areas where the authorities needed to expand their influence and strengthen their positions. The branches of public organizations were actively created in the peasant milieu.

Also, it was a significant coverage of the members. Each region of the Komi region had several branches of various public organizations. The unique feature of their activities were determined by the national basis in the case of Komi.
