Who We Are
WEEDS is a secular and non-profit organization started in 1989 to address inherent social problems through a powerful and democratic way which was known as voluntary development activities of downtrodden people. At the end of that decade the oppressed Dalit and poor women of Mangadu area were organized under the banner of “Keezhmaanagar Mahalir Munnettra Sangham” and slowly we started to work with nearest village and district because same kind people live in the nearest area. In the year 1996 the name was changed to “Women Education and Economic Development Society (WEEDS)”. We believe that society develops only when women get equal opportunity to establish themselves financially and socially. We work for Women Empowerment, Children development and Community Development.
- Inclusion and Gender equality is very important for us.
- We encourage participation of every stakeholder.
- Transparency and Accountability is very key to all our actions.
- We strive to give sustainability (SDG’s) in our programs.
