NGO Profile :
Aid for Social Change and Welfare Association (ASCWA) focuses on rural development and gender equality by working to bring about a sustainable change in the lives of the disadvantaged groups (dalits, adivasis, small farmers and underprivileged women), by making them aware of their rights and enabling them to help themselves by providing the requisite skills and knowledge. ASCWA currently operates in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh.

Its main programs/campaigns:

  • Convention for Fishing Community: ASCWA organized a convention for the fishing community, in collaboration with a local NGO as a resource partner. The fisher families were explained the eligibility criteria for entitlement of various governments schemes and taught new fishing techniques (cage culture, pen culture, etc.). ASCWA also distributed uniforms and sports kits to hostel students.
  • Medical Relief: ASCWA organized a free health camp for detection of cervical cancer for rural women. It also supports handicapped children by providing appropriate callipers.
  • NGO Training on Good Governance: ASCWA conducted a workshop for NGOs to equip the organizations on good governance and statutory compliances and to share with them the latest tools available for good institutional and project management.
  • Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) at workplace: ASCWA conducted interactive awareness sessions for employees on sexual harassment. It also appealed to corporates to prepare an Anti-sexual harassment policy and form an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) and train ICC members on the Act, Rules and Regulations.
  • ‘No Hunger, More Nutrition’ Campaign: This focuses on ensuring food availability throughout the year and increased nutrition for underprivileged communities.
  • ‘Natural Resources, Steady Income’ Campaign: This focuses on increasing the annual income of households through sustainable livelihood creation for marginal farmers and disadvantaged groups through ecological agriculture, livestock management and smooth access to government schemes.
  • ‘Stop Violence, Empower Women’ Campaign: It focuses on reducing domestic violence and increasing gender equality, thereby empowering women. The campaign works with survivors of violence to ensure they live a life with dignity. Awareness camps are conducted about progressive legislation like Protection of Women against Domestic Violence Act.
  • Social Cause: Participation in Marathon Charity Run to create awareness of a violence-free world for women and raise funds. It also started a campaign to raise funds from employees of corporates.
