Our Presence


Massive expansion and national impact

Over the years, the Atharv Welfare Society network has expanded to all 32 states in India and our direct programs and affiliated organizations reach thousands of house hold in rural India each year. The catalysts for this success have been the innovative methods used to approach the problem of Health/ Sanitation & Education in India. The implementation of these unique programs aims to create a national impact. While our focus as a development organization has been first and foremost to work on the ground for bringing positive change in the lives of the less privileged citizens of our country we have been making equal efforts to sustain this change, by sensitizing and engaging the privileged masses towards their social responsibility.



Why Atharv


Understanding the root of the problem and starting there Civic Driven Changes:

Atharv Welfare Society has always looked upon its own role as that of a catalyst, a means of setting in motion and accelerating the process of development. But the true potential for bringing real, long lasting change, lies with the civil society. Not remaining restricted to the community, and with the aim of achieving sustainable development in a wider social context, Atharv Welfare Society has adopted the principle of Civic Driven Change, making the civil society an active partner in all its welfare initiatives. As a step towards this, the society takes a multi-stakeholder approach, where it partners with indigenous community based organizations, international development organizations, local government and civic bodies, corporate, institutions, schools, media, communities and individuals, to exchange knowledge, combine resources and promote the ideal of shared growth.


Good Governance



Governance is the need of the hour in the development sector in order to ensure and promote application of best management practices, compliance of law and adherence to best possible ethical standards. The entire management processes and practices of Atharv Welfare Society are in compliance with the principles of Good Governance’.

I. Making Policies & Decisions

Atharv Welfare Society from the inception itself, works on a delegated work environment. Each and every person in the organization is involved in the process of decision making in a scientifically designed system. Making Policy & Decision in the Foundation are done through a four tier system.

a. Departments & Divisions
Monthly review meetings are held for each division and department regularly. b. Executive Committee
The Executive Committee manages the Foundation’s operation directly and it reports to the Board of Advisors. Members of this committee are professionals working with Atharv and it is mandatory to include a member from the Board of Advisors.. c. Advisory Body
The Board of Advisors comprises of technically competent people from diverse backgrounds and expertise. The body is formed for a period of one year and a few independent members with eminence and reputation are nominated each year. Members of this board also meet once every Quarter.. d. Board of Trustees
The Board of Trustees sets the vision and broad guidelines for the Foundation and ensures good governance in liaison with the Board of Advisors; although, the Board of Trustees is not involved in the day to day operation of Atharv Welfare Society.

II. Project Management & Monitoring system

The project management & monitoring system in organization comprises of a systematic and well laid down processes. These are as follow –

a) Selection of NGO Partners
Partners are invited selection of partners for required locations under specified programme through advertisement in relevant forum, websites; and also through reference from credible partners as well as perennial ‘submit a proposal’ section on our website. Also, prospective partners keep on submitting proposals directly to the foundation round the year. Initial selection is done on these bases. b) Monitoring
Once a partner is selected under a particular programme, an MOU is signed, guidelines and initial trainings are imparted and the particular project is started. The project is put under a systematic and periodic monitoring system.

IV. Use of Technology for Good Governance

a) Online Monitoring System
Atharv Welfare Society advocates use of technology for ensuring impartial monitoring and to cut down over head cost. Atharv has already started the system in a few of its national level programmes. Gradually, all its projects will be compatible with this system. The biggest challenges so far have been lack of access to technology in remote project areas and lack of working knowledge among grassroots NGO partners. The Foundation is taking up the task of building capacities of all its NGO partners and project staffs. b) Beneficiaries Management System
A successful beneficiary management system is operational across 100 projects in 21 states of India. This technology is helping atharv in tracking the progress and development of all the beneficiaries in two major national level programmes as of now. c) Management Information System (MIS)
A monthly MIS is prepared and analyzed by the MIS Officers and it is submitted and discussed in Executive Committee meetings for assessing the operational activities and to do future planning.

V. People Management

Our people are our assets.
Atharv Welfare society believes in a democratic and participatory work culture. Appraisal and review system is conducted twice a year in a democratic way to identify the future leaders of the organization.
