The world depends on women for existence

For centuries, women have been the most suppressed section of the society. A woman has always been denied her due. Women also known as ‘Jannani' in Vedas meaning the birth giver, mother of life. The word itself depicts that women are the one who should be given the highest respect, but the truth is somewhere far from the actual reality.  According to a Sanskrit slogan, ‘Yatra Nariyastu Pujyante, Ramante Tatra Devah', meaning god only resides where women are respected. 

The welfare of women had always been one of the central issues in the overall development of countries across the globe. Women all around the world have always been deprived of the right to education. She is more over treated as a domestic servant whose sole responsibility is to look after the family and household work. For decades, various social evils like child marriage, polygamy, inequality etc have been cursed to women. The society is made by men and men continues to dominate and exploit women. Society needs to have a better introspection into the problems faced by women across the country to empower them. It is also essential to improve the conditions of the woman in rural, slum and tribal areas as they are the weakest of all and constitutes seventy percent of the total women in the country.

To look after the welfare of women, our government has devised and implemented various welfare schemes like Rashtriya Mahila Kosh, Mahila Samridhi Yojna, Beti Padao Beti Bachao Abhiyan etc. Apart from government schemes, there are various non-profit government organizations which look after women welfare. NariSewa Samiti is one of the non-profit government organizations which is from decades working towards the women welfare and empowerment. The institutions provide education, vocational training, healthcare and family counseling to women and thereby making them both economically and socially empowered. Through various charity programs, the Samiti plays a vital role in offering girl education to financially weak girls and women helping them to achieve success in their life.
The sole aim of the NariSewa Samiti is to look after the women welfare and empower them socially, economically and politically thus working aggressively to eliminate women abuse and promote gender equality.
