About us



Villages Improvement & Society Welfare Association (VISWA) is a non-governmental, non-political, and not for profit organization. It was established in 1994 and registered under voluntary social welfare act 1961, and now registered under the societies act, XXI of 1860 since May, 2008  for the socio economic development of backward and economically unstable communities. Since then it has been involved in the community development projects with partnership of likeminded social development organizations and local philanthropists.

With long history of working with community development, our organization has evolved its approach from a welfare, working for small community and limited geographical outreach to a new position as provincial development organization with rights base agenda of empowering the vulnerable groups of society in Sindh. Along the way it has implemented number of development and relief projects as well as partnered and networked with local, provincial, national and international organizations strengthening its position as a proactive social change actor.

Our external environment is changing and so is our organization. We acknowledge this inconspicuous transition and have responded sporadically to make ourselves relevant through a documented long term plan. So first of all our organization got registration in joint stock companies under the Societies Act, XXI of 1860 to work smoothly in whole province.
