Wise Men Civic Welfare Association (WCWA) is a non-profit established in Andhra Pradesh to help develop poor communities. Their aim is to eradicate extreme hunger and poverty, achieve universal primary education, promote gender equality, empower women, reduce child mortality, improve mental health, combat HIV/AIDS, malaria, and ensure environmental sustainability. They achieve this by enabling women to achieve financial freedom, providing welfare to disabled children, conducting a nutrition program for children, supporting the elderly, working to sustain the environment, and treating the underprivileged suffering from illnesses.

Their programmes include:

  • Google AdWords: In FY15, WCWA received and utilised a Google adwords grant of Rs72 lakhs.
  • Hostel: WCWA is in the process of constructing a Hostel for the needy and destitute, where free accommodation, food, and recreational facilities will be provided to the beneficiaries.
  • Computer Education Programme: WCWA provides training in basic computer literacy, computers as a tool for learning in schools and homes, and training in computer hardware. They are currently running a Computer Centre with 115 students. So far, they have trained 80 students.
  • Child Health Programme: They conduct nutrition, pulse polio, and child education programmes for children. They started a new programme called Nutrition Action Plan for Children (NAPC) to use new technologies to monitor and update information on malnourished children in the targeted community. They organise awareness camps on water and sanitation for children and their families.
  • Vocational Training Programme: WCWA conducts vocational training programmes for women between 18 to 35 years of age in areas which have market potential. This helps in providing functional skills in order to rehabilitate them and mainstream them into the socio-economic sphere.
  • Awareness Campaigns: WCWA has conducted an awareness campaign on side effects of cellular phone towers. A person falls prey to thermal effect due to radiation if he is close to the tower and it causes fatigue, cataract and reduced mental concentration. The non-thermal effect affects people who are at a distance and the ill-effects are cell membrane permeability, and cancer.
  • Others: WACA initiated a Global AIDS Programme to share information and influence policy on AIDS activities and issues. They conduct programmes on adult education, environmental awareness, agriculture, solar energy, and climate change.
