Padmashali International Welfare Association
PADMASALI INTERNATIONAL WELFARE ASSOCIATION is an NGO striving for the up-liftment of the poor downtrodden and under privileged in the Society without distinction as to creed, caste and religion especially padmasali’s and weavers who are about 12% amongst the population of India. Today in this community many are still depending on weaving for their livelihood. With their meager income most of them are unable to get proper education, proper health care. There are many suicides in this community. Because of poverty, those children who could study well are unable to do so due to poverty and lack of timely help. Many great leaders of this community had fought for up-liftment of the poor, still there are many deprived, destitute, disabled and orphans who need the help and consoling hand around their shoulders. It is therefore, necessary that every individual should understand that none of us could enjoy peace and security while our fellow members were cursed by hunger, homelessness and ill- health and without proper education.
So all the PADMASHALI's increasingly should reach out to help those who are in need of our services. Across the world, our community people should seize the responsibility for up-liftment of the poor and downtrodden.
