Mahila Seva Samity was born in 1947 to provide relief and rehabilitation to women and children when partition displaced thousands of people from their homes. Today, we serve elderly women who have no families to turn to in their twilight years, survivors of domestic violence, children of poor working women, and adolescents who are in danger of being physically or sexually exploited or women who need shelter.

To execute our various welfare projects we need the financial support of well wishers and people who support our cause. Please send your  generous donations to our above address. 

Our ongoing projects include: an Old Age Home, Short Stay Home, Crèche and Nutrition Center for Children, and Swadhar. In addition, we run Legal and Family Counseling Services, a Handloom Unit and Weaving Center, and a Spice Unit. All these are described under Our Projects.
