Shimla, Apr 28 (UNI) Himachal Pradesh Governor V S Kokje today gave a clarion call to the NGOs and influential members to motivate business houses to join the crusade towards social reforms.
Presiding over the 24th Annual General Meeting of the reconstituted Himachal Pradesh State Council for Child Welfare here, the Governor emphasised the need to launch mass membership enrolment drive to rope in every social welfare activist with the movement so that maximum members are associated with the activities of the State Child Welfare Council.
"Objective of the Council is to provide necessary help in educational and rehabilitation endeavours of the underprivileged children so that they are equipped with skills to lead socially and economically a secure life in the society'', Mr Kokje added.
He said that a number of prominent business houses had created charitable trusts and were actively involved in social welfare activities, which needed to be associated with the State Child Welfare Council activities so that the under privileged children of the State were also benefitted.
