Social Welfare in Akola

Social Welfare Services in Akola

Akola has a moderate population of 427,146 as per the 2011 census. Since becoming a tier II city, several people from the surrounding districts have moved to Akola and have become a part of a well-formed society. The improvement in medical and tourism industries has resulted in the formation of a well-cultured and educated society.

On the other hand, the changing lifestyles, rising costs of healthcare and medical facilities and in some cases, poverty, have affected a certain section of people negatively. Many are unable to afford advanced treatments in spite of their availability. The homeless are unable to find shelter and the children do not get the necessary education in spite of supportive housing and literacy schemes. The reach of the governmental entities extend only so far and it is in these situations that a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) is very useful.

A gradual increase in the population has given rise to several Non-Governmental Organisations in Akola. Some of these organisations are funded and others are volunteer-based firms. Many of these organisations are focused on social welfare, education, women and children empowerment, support for senior citizens, support for the blind and also orphanages. Many of these NGOs have also involved themselves in governmental welfare programs namely the pulse polio and other vaccinations schemes.
