DISHA SOCIAL ORGANIZATION

Training of ALMCs and Steering Committees of Morchas

A training of Area Level Morcha Committees (ALCs) and Steering Committee (SCs) of morcha was organised on September 19, 2017, at Disha Training Centre. Fifty-four people participated.

Disha Director KN Tiwari shared history and struggle of Disha to fulfil its vision and mission and achievements of successive years. He shared that with consistent efforts of Disha and Morcha Committees, women of villages in which Disha is working were quite capable in addressing their issues. He said that they were well informed about laws and acts formed against violence against women.

Morcha coordinator said that since 1989, morchas were consistently working for uplift of poor, Dalits, marginalised and minorities. Morcha committees were actively working for wellbeing of deprived communities. Morcha committees regularly disseminated information on various social issues and were playing great role in linking up Disha with village inhabitants.

So far about 100 committees have been formed. Four ALCs have been formed to make the committees strong and sustainable, so these committees can do good and effective work in the community. Structures of ALCs and SCs were also discussed.
