Society in Hamirpur
When we talk about societies, we generally mean those non-governmental non-profit organizations, which have been set up by the citizens with certain purpose. In most cases, their aim is to improve the quality of life of the people of a particular area; sometimes they aim to bring about an overall social transformation. However, all of them generally have a key area of function and work within that limit.
Moreover, to receive funds and to operate, they must be registered with the Register of Societies in lieu of which they are provided with a registration number. Some of these non-governmental organizations may also run as trusts. Nonetheless, to operate, they must also get themselves registered and abide by rules laid down not only by the government but also by the founder of the trust.
NGOs in Hamirpur
On the other hand, some NGOs in Hamirpur work in multiple sectors. Shahid Dinesh Memorial Educational Trust combines educational awareness programs with family welfare. They regularly undertake adult educational programs as well as teachers training programs; but along with that, family welfare is also an area of their expertise.
Then again, there is the Eklakshay. It was registered with Register of Societies in the beginning of 2009 and was established under the aegis of Arvind Thakur. Art and culture, family welfare, children welfare, women empowerment, education and literacy, civic issues, environment and forests, water resources etc are some of the key area of their work. To make the roads safer and the traffic smoother they have constructed pavements and erected street lights. To control swine flu, they have also organized medical camps. Forestations as well as promotion of tourist places also falls under their agenda.
Yet again, there are organizations such as Shishu Kalayan Shiksha Sangstha. From the name, it seems that the organization deals with child education. Contrarily, it has been providing care and support for the people with AID/HIV for the last few years. They provide medical, psychological as well as spiritual support to such patients. Although it was registered under Society Act, it is actually a subsidiary of Sonali Mahila Vikas Charitable trust.
