Society for Women in Rural Development (SWIRD) is a social development NGO working for last 17 years to uplift the quality of lives of the downtrodden women and children in remote rural belt in the Eastern part of India. Among various projects SWIRD is running 10 nos. of pre-primary schools (Balwadi Centers) to support elementary education for the poor children. Due to financial constraints we face lot of difficulties to run those schools.
Uplift the quality of lives of the downtrodden women and children in remote rural belt in the Eastern part of India.
Every society has a history for the formation of the organization which encourages and inspires its members to reach the goal. ‘Society for Women in Rural Development’ (SWIRD) is such an organization run by a group of women especially the house-wives who know about the distressful situation of the women of the poor rural families living below the poverty line. One unfortunate incidence had motivated the women to establish SWIRD. It was in the year 1990. Many poor families could not arrange even one meal for every member of the family and the helpless mother had to starve along with her kids. One day a mother committed suicide as she could not arrange food for her children for some consecutive days. A local leading NGO, viz. Nabarun Seva Niketan facilitated some community leaders to sit together and discussed about their duties to uplift the condition of the families especially by the women themselves . This meeting gave a formation of a group which decided to form an NGO which would run exclusively by the rural women. Thus in the year 1991-1992 a non profit society was formed as an offshoot of Nabarun Seva Niketan viz. “Society for Women in Rural Development” or ‘SWIRD’ in short.
