Developing a healthy partnership with Voluntary Organisations for the welfare, development and empowerment of women in our society has been one of the primary objectives of the Central Social Welfare Board since its inception in 1953. The schemes of the Board are for the most part implemented by Vos. The Board has developed networking with more than 8,000 VO’s across. Activities of the Board also involve networking with various state level organizations through the State Social Welfare Board located in 33 States and U.Ts. of the country. The Central Social Welfare Board provides support to VOs under a variety of programmes in order to facilitate and strengthen their role in empowering women through education and training, through collective mobilisation and awareness creation, through income generating facilities and by the provision of support services.
