NOSKK was established in 1979. It was initiated by a group of young women professionals, who were convinced that a sustainable livelihood for the poor and marginalized women is one of the keys for women’s empowerment. The devastating flood of 1978 and its traumatic aftermath triggered these young women to organize themselves and initiate the Nari – O Sishu Kalyan Kendra. It was formed in order to immediately respond to the flood victims and with a larger dream of overcoming the economic poverty through livelihood options.
