Society in Amritsar

For any city to grow, it must at first cater to the welfare of its people and surroundings. In Amritsar, there is a mix of people from all walks of life; some well settled while others struggling with day to day activities. 

As a result there is a need for an overall development of the people, no matter what background they come from. Keeping this in mind, the city has several Non Profit and Charitable societies which have been functioning for the betterment of this city. Prosperity in totality cannot be achieved by materialistic gains and thus these societies play a major role.

There are efficient facilities which are provided to the children who feel warm and loved at all times. Right from food to their education, everything is taken care of.

These institutes largely work through volunteers, the staff/team members. Financially there is great support from people all across the globe, especially Punjabis. Donation can be made on gaining account information and depositing money, or buy visiting the main office. The numbers are always active and you too can become a part in the betterment of our society and nurturing these children.

Blind Welfare in Amritsar

It was in the year 1936 that a home for the blind, Soorma Singh Ashram came into being. It was this very ashram that gave blind students a motive in life and an aim to move forward. At present there are more than 30 students who study in this ashram. 

They are taught to learn through Braille and are given many classes where there is great scope for them. Students have not only completed their education but have become skilled too. This encouragement leads to them playing all sorts of sports, learning instruments, doing skilled activities and gaining confidence. The place remains a popular one in Amritsar, all thanks to its achievements and noble deed.

Women Welfare in Amritsar

With a sex ratio of 879, Amritsar may be a city where men outnumber women, but not their welfare. Women are treated with equal dignity and compete in all walks of life. The charitable societies work towards the welfare of women among other areas. Also, in Amritsar there are welfare societies which cater directly and only to the needs of women. 

Here, you will find many women coming out of their shell and participating in several programs. These range from awareness about problems of eve teasing and guidance given for self protection. One should be able to stand for themselves and that remains the aim. Not just the problems, but even the creative side of women is encouraged so that they never shy away from giving their best.
