Chief secretary Nagaland Lalthara on Saturday paid a visit to Children’s Park, Supply colony which is run by United Women Welfare Organisation (UWWO) Dimapur.
The main purpose of his visit was to overlook the activities undertaken by the organisation and to take stock of the grievances faced by the organisation.
UWWO not only runs the children’s park, but has established a pre-nursery school for children of low income families as well as vocational training class for drop-out girls in the park premises.
UWWO president Daisy Yaden and secretary Martha Walling apprised Lalthara on the functioning of the organisation and its objectives. While interacting with the members of the organisation, Lalthara assured to extend help through SSA scheme. He lauded United Women Welfare Organisation Dimapur-one of the oldest NGOs in Dimapur for being been able to spare time for the public, despite their busy schedule, adding that space should be provided to a society as long as it was contributing its services towards the benefit of the public.
He also visited the pre-nursery class room and tailoring class.
United Women Welfare Organisation Dimapur was established in May 1976 with the objective to assist poor and destitute women, drop out girls, children and orphan to uplift their economic and social life.
Establishment of pre-nursery school in the year 1987 and children’s park was one of the many achievements of the organisation. The organisation has been maintaining the children’s park since 1989 till date with the permission of the government. According to UWWO, before the opening of children’s park located in the centre of Supply colony, the site was a dumping ground for several years.
In due course of time, the organisation, feeling the need to provide a shed for the children, constructed a building with donations from various quarters including government agencies and NGOs.
It may be mentioned that Lalthara who was the then supply secretary contributed 100 bags of cement for the construction of school building. On his visit to the park on Saturday, he opined that the same building was in need of major repair.
Running for the last 24 years, the pre- nursery school at present has an enrollment of 50 students.
