SIKKIM COUNCIL OF WOMEN
The Sikkim Women’s Council was established in the year 1981 under the able guidance of Smr. Thrity Talyarkhan, the then First Lady of Sikkim. This is the 39th year of existence. The first President of the Council was also Mrs. Talyarkhan. This organization has since been handled successfully by very prominent and dedicated ladies of Sikkim.
Traditionally NGOs have always been in the forefront of promoting new ideas and in encouraging the Government to implement them. We act as the bridge between the Govt. and the public. We have always advocated the fullest recognition to the vast contribution made by women in the family, the government and above all in the society.
In Sikkim too, the Council has worked hand in hand with the Govt for implementing women and children related schemes. It works closely with the Health Department, Human Resource Development Department and the Social Welfare Department.
