WHO WE ARE?

Working Women Welfare Trust (WWWT) is a non-profit, PCP certified & EAD registered organization which has directed its efforts towards the betterment and welfare of women who are compelled to assume the role of bread winners (either solely or in part) for their families.

WHAT WE DO?

With the passage of time the organization’s struggle for its cause has taken many forms. On one hand the trust is trying to create employment opportunities for the under privileged rural women whereas on the other hand it raises voice for the betterment of working conditions of those who are already in jobs of various sorts.

Working Women Welfare Trust organizes Workshops, Seminars, Discussion forums & Press Conferences and enhances the women cause. We believe in women empowerment with knowledge that instills ethical and positive values.
