Within the overarching national goal of uplifting the marginalised and weaker sections of our society, ANAWA has carved a small niche for itself with a Two-Fold Mission :
FIRSTLY: To provide education for children who belong to a deprived and underprivileged section of our society
SECONDLY: To empower young girls and women from marginalised sections of our society through vocational training schemes that instil self-esteem and confidence.
It was in 1994 that ANAWA came into being when a small group of wives of military veterans located Delhi, launched ‘ ANAWA’ and designated it as ‘ Army Navy Air Force Wives Association ‘.
This dedicated group of founder members included: ( Late) Dr Mrs Ramesh Chibber (w/o Lt Gen Chibber ), ( Late) Mrs Usha Bakshi (w/o Gp Capt Bakshi ), Mrs Kelly Sikand ( w/o Air Marshal Sikand )
We have about 400 children and 50 adults enrolled with us, in different projects. Offering the equal opportunity to children, hailing from marginalised families, our programmes encourage and equip them to participate in sports, physical training, outings and participation in competitive cultural events, spread throughout the year.
Focussed on the future, we at ANAWA Trust understand that levelling social and economic imbalances in the society, around us, begin with educating the unschooled, dropouts, adult empowerment, through adults, vocational training, and providing financial and educational support to children, enabling them to complete their school level education.
May Their Soul Rest In Peace
As Anawa trust completes its ten years of existence, we acknowledge the yeoman service of two our founding Trustees, Usha Bhakshi and Shipra Konar, who have left for their Heavenly Abode.
