Society in Hamirpur

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

In Hamirpur too there are number of societies operating in different sectors. Most of them run on governmental aids and/or on donations received from individuals and business houses. Some like Ngos of Tauni Devi or Himachal Gyan Vigyan Samiti of Pratap Nagar lay stress on education. For example, Ngo, registered with the Register of Society on 10.07.2008, works mainly in the field of education and literacy. Its core function area is to offer computer training free of cost. NGOs also offers vocational training so that the residents of the area can earn their living independently and with dignity.

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.

Charitable Trust in Hamirpur

Himachal Head and Neck Foundation is also another subsidiary under Sonali Mahila Vikas Chritable Trust. However, it was registered as a Trust, not a Society under the aegis of Dr. Divye Malhotra. They are mostly working on children health and family welfare. They provide free or low cost surgical options for socially backward and poor patients. Providing surgical options to children born with cleft lips or palate disorders is one of their main areas of function. To spread awareness they regularly hold camps in the rural belt. The Foundation also interacts with local NGOs so that the later can identify such patients and send them to the foundation for medical treatment.

Some other Societies in Hamirpur

Other than the above mentioned societies, we can also mention Sai Universal Managing Committee, Shiva Yubak Mandal, Nihal Public Welfare and Environment Conservation Volunteer Society, BCS Computer Education Society. Some of them may have spread their area of work beyond the boundaries of Hamirpur, but all of them have been registered in Hamirpur and working tirelessly for the welfare of the people here.
