SHIKHAR ORGANISATION FOR SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT (SOSD) was initiated on 13th November 2001. SOSD is a developmental organization run by a group of professionals facilitating community development initiatives since it came into existence. Our strategy is to empower the vulnerable sections of the society by building their capacities through education, vocational training and skillar based development. We are working for the cause of human development focusing on the less privileged sections of the society with the objective to provide experiential learning and vocational training to empower and develop weaker sections of the society. Our prime focus is on developing self- dependence in women and children to enable them to lead more effective and satisfactory lives. Further, the development of this focus group will help in mainstreaming and integrating them with immediate community and society at large.

What they do makes the difference, “Turning a passion for justice into effective action.” We are accountable to both the donors/funding agencies and to the people we assist, to make sure that the the resources are
