Hi myself, Assunta Pardhe the founder of Chetna Mahila Vikas Kendra largely known as 'Chetna'. We are an NGO working for the Women Empowerment in Pune and Sindhudurg District of Maharashtra, since 1995. Chetna through its self-help groups for women built their capacity and contributed to the economical and social empowerment of its members who belong to poor and marginalized sections of the society.

Chetna is known for its outstanding work for the community-based support system for victims of domestic violence in urban and rural areas of India. For the last 25 years it has implemented projects on legal Good Governance, Communal Harmony, HIV/Aids, Legal Aid and Literacy with support from national and international donor agencies. With the end of each project, the project activities suffer due to a lack of funds.

In 2020, during the pandemic, the migrants from the work area of  Chetna were supported by providing the ration kits. It also provided ration to sex workers, migrant labourers from Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

2021 the new variant of COVID hit very badly the poor communities who have lost their livelihood.
To support the needy families in this uncertain situation and build their capacity we sincerely appeal to support Chetna.
