Peaceful Society

Peaceful Society

Peaceful Society (PS)’s original inspiration can be traced back through the movement for Total Revolution of J.P. Narayan in the late 1970’s to Gandhiji’s dream of a peaceful society, in the personal history of two key founder members, Kumar Kalanand Mani and Bharati Bandodkar. Kumar Kalanand Mani had a background of 9 years active full-time involvement in the Sarvodaya – Bhoodan Movement in Bihar and then as a fully committed participant in the JP movement and the Chhatra Sangharsha Samiti from 1974.

Goa Outreach

Goa Outreach
Goa Outreach

Goa Outreach is a project (registered children’s charity) based in Goa, India, with the aim of helping local disadvantaged children regardless of their religion, class, caste or gender. Many of these children are slum and street children who have arrived in Goa alone or with their families from neighbouring states in the hope of an easier and better life.

Children often end up working on the streets to support the family income, this is often in the form of Rag Picking where children, usually in small groups, walk around the streets picking up scrap in the form of plastic, cardboard and metal. This is later sold at recycling centres. Other children can be found working the beaches begging, selling trinkets or other small items which they buy for 5rs and try and sell to tourists for a hefty mark-up.

How to Start an NGO?

Before starting an NGO, you should know what are the basic problems of people in the area you want to reduce. Knowing this, it becomes easier to formulate the purpose and mission of your NGO accordingly. After this, you have to decide the vision, mission and objectives of the NGO.

People who have problems within society will have to work accordingly. Because no one listens to many people’s problems. Therefore, the purpose of any NGO should be to understand the problems of the people and start their NGO accordingly.

Required Document

Before starting an NGO you need some important documents.

  • Memorandum and Rules & Regulations in Duplicate duly signed by Minimum Three persons (Each page on bottom).
  • Ownership Proof of Registered Office. (Electricity Bill/Sale Deed/ GPA/Water Bill etc.)
  • Residential/Office Address Proof of all members of the Society. Such as Voter ID/ Telephone Bill/ Electricity Bill/Pass Port/Driving License etc.
  • NOC from Owner of premises on Rs.10/- Stamp Paper.
  • An affidavit from President on Rs.10/- Stamp Paper.
  • List of Desirous person should be signed by all members of society.
  • Desirous persons or the persons subscribing the name to the Memorandum should not be (in any case) less than seven. If it is proposed to give All India character to the society there must be a minimum of eight different persons from different States of Indian Union to the Memorandum.

How to Register an NGO?

The process of registration of an NGO in India is done in three ways. Or we can also say that NGOs can be registered in any of the three Acts. Let us know what are these three acts?

  • Trust Act
  • Society Act
  • Companies Act

Trust Act

There are Trust Acts in various states of India but if a state does not have a Trust Act, then the 1882 Trust Act applies in that state. It is necessary to have at least two trustees under this act. To register an NGO under this Act, you have to apply to the charity commissioner or registrar office. To register an NGO under the Trust Act, you need a document called a deed.

Society Act

Registration under the Act requires a Memorandum of Association and Rules & Regulations document, this document is very important. A minimum of 7 members is required to create this document. NGOs are registered as societies, but in the state of Maharashtra, NGOs can be registered as trustees in some states such as the Societies Act.

Section 8 Company Act

Memorandum and articles of association and regulation document are required for registration of an NGO under the Companies Act. No stamp paper of any kind is required to create this document, a minimum of three members are required to create this document. In this act, the NGO is registered under the Companies Act.
