There is an urgent need to create mechanisms to empower widows in Yavatmal and Vidarbha, and give them the support they need to pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward. However, such initiatives are rare. One of the few such projects for the welfare of the helpless women is run by Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR) and its sister organization Sampada Trust.
We are delighted to inform you that WOTR was recently felicitated by the Rotary Club of Bombay, in an award ceremony held in Mumbai on February 12, 2019. As a part of the felicitation, our Managing Trustee and co-founder Crispino Lobo was presented with the Social Service Club Award for 2018-2019. Mr. Lobo was awarded for his "dedication to resource conservation and community empowerment". The award was presented by President of the Rotary Club of Bombay Vijay Jatia.
