Vivekananda Social Welfare Centre is the consequence of a social development programme perpetuated among the socio-economically backward community in the Rambagan slum, North-Kolkata since early 1950s. It has now proved its indispensability and spread arms to a few more such slums. Significantly, it taps the poor but talented men and women, cutting across castes and creeds. For their fruitful economic engagement it provides them with professional training in tailoring & knitting, cane furniture & bamboo craft, commercial art & painting through various specially designed courses free of charges. When skilled in the above mentioned traits, they are being offered with the necessary materials for actual productions of useful things for marketing and sale. The proceeds thereof are then being distributed to them as their earnings to make both ends meet. Their hard earned employment is thus absolutely dependent on the market consumption of their produce which they present by dint of their achieved expertise. Hence, here is an earnest appeal to all and sundry to come forward and purchase the products upheld through this web page, in order to support the philanthropic cause of VSWC that sincerely caters to the economic necessity of one of the weakest sections of society.
The cane furniture I purchased from VSWC more than Thirty years ago still look so beautiful and sturdy.
