About SOSVA(Society for Service To
Voluntary Agencies)

SOSVA initiated its support service activities for other NGOs through useful training workshops on subjects such as accounts writing, calculations, etc. To further support the capacities of social service organizations, the SOSVA Training and Promotion Institute (STAPI) was formed in 2001. It promotes and strengthens the contribution of other NGOs working for the upliftment of the underprivileged. In the synergy of core values-service, volunteerism, and professionalism, SOSVA aims at creating a strong voluntary sector through Training, Documentation, and Research. The government of India has shown appreciation to SOSVA for highlighting the concept of ‘Mother NGO’ which involves the collection and distribution of funds to other NGOs working towards the betterment of society.
