ABOUT OUR ORGANISATION (Oju Welfare Association)
OJU WELFARE ASSOCIATION (OWA) is one of the pioneer and philanthropic organizations of the State of Arunachal Pradesh. The Organization is implementing various welfare activities with its Head Office at Naharlagun.
Since its inception in 1979, the Organization however, emphasized more on the significance of education and thereafter gradually registered in the year 1988, under Section 3 of the Societies Registration Act, 1860, to promote multi-dimensional welfare activities to the cause of the people-in-need in both rural and urban areas. It has given due stress on empowerment of Women and nurturing orphan & destitute Children. OWA has been implementing and extending diverse welfare activities for the cause through campaigning community awareness, need-based vocational training, rehabilitation services for orphans and distressed women irrespective of caste & creed or religion. It has completed more than three decades of services as on 31.03.2012.
The Annual Report is to elicit the programmes and performances of this Organization during the year 2011-2012. In the process of development, OWA has experienced the success and failure which have strengthened its vision and capability to work more effectively for humanity. And I am sure that the activities initiated by the OWA will continue to grow further to reach newer heights to the cause in ameliorating the suffering humanity.
Before concluding, I deem it a privilege to extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to those benevolent people, Departments and development agencies whose immense cooperation and unstinted support have made it possible to keep our development drive on-going. Further, I convey my heartfelt thanks to all our Members of the Board of Management for their advice & cooperation. I am also very thankful to the Administrative Staff of OWA, the Teaching Faculty of the Oju Mission School (OMS) and Volunteers for their tireless and firm efforts in different fields of programme activities initiated by OWA.
