LIST OF FAMILY SUPPORT PROGRAMS

Seesha supports the struggling widows who are overburdened with responsibilities after the demise of their spouse. Seesha identifies such women with children and pay a widow pension on monthly basis. This helps them with their basic needs & education for their children and also gives them an emotional strength and security. Widow pension is given to poor women who are destitute and separated from husband every month. This counts to 191 women. We want to enhance this to many more beneficiaries when funds are available.
