South Vihar Welfare Society for Tribal (SVWST)
South Vihar Welfare Society for Tribal also known as Ashray is an organisation that works for the socio- economic upliftment of vulnerable communities. When SVWST applied for empanelment for the first time, they had only the basic policies, like a recruitment policy, a salary scale, job description, appraisal and development systems. Today SVWST boasts of 12 robust policies. Among others, they have an anti-sexual harassment policy, personnel development policy, infrastructure development policy and child protection policy. The introduction and existence of such policies in a grassroots organisation is commendable. This accomplishment is also a remark on the abilities of the Development Labs — Centre for Public Policy and Governance, TISS to notice worthy organisations and provide them with a solid foundation to work on.
