Overseas Women's Club Supports Charities
The OWC funds and supports the needs of 21 charities (as of July 2017) in
the greater Bangalore area. These charities cover a wide spectrum of the
underprivileged, including the destitute, children, orphans, women in need, the
elderly, terminally ill and HIV+ patients, and physically and mentally
The primary role of the Charity Committee is to maintain close contact with
these charities and to distribute the surplus funds raised by the activities of the
OWC. The Committee also creates awareness of the work of the charities and
their needs among OWC members in various ways such as articles in the
Rangoli, organising visits to the charities and holding an annual information
morning with all the charities together in one place. It’s third role is to give
guidance to those OWC members interested in volunteering at one of the
charities with information about their needs and providing the contact details
of the relevant person at the charity.
Please find (where is to be decided) the list of charities supported by the
OWC, the contact details, description of work and activities, donation
requirements and volunteer opportunities.

the Rangoli for contact details of the Vice President of Charities or stop by the
Charity Desk at anyone of our OWC Coffee Mornings.
