Who we are


Indira Social Welfare Organisation was started by a group of enthuasiastic young teenagers comprising mainly of girls in Dhenkanal district, Orissa, INDIA. A group of girls who had been attending tailoring classes in a skill training centre identified the need for some kind of skill training for women in their town and armed with their own newly acquired skill, set out start a centre in Dhenkanal town in 1985. The organisation was given a name in recognition of the widely recognised political leader Indira Gandhi and duly registered.
