Disaster Preparedness and District Administration

Social Welfare Institute has been involved in Community Based Disaster Preparedness (CBDP) since 2001, and presently covers around 280 Gram Sansads. (A Gram Sansad is a smaller area with about 700 - 1200 voters living in the area) In this we have been receiving support from various district administrations, Department of Relief, Department of Civil Defense, Caritas India, Catholic Relief Services and other partners and agencies. Having recognized the strength of the process and the capacity of the Staff of SWI, the District Administration has asked SWI to help them in implementing the Disaster Risk Mitigation Program (DRMP). This opens the door for various opportunities, while at the same time strengthening our own CBDP. Details can be availed by clicking on Social Welfare Institute and DRMP
