The mission of NESSWO is ‘aiming to bridge the distance between people by providing opportunities to individuals to influence positive social change through an exchange of ideas, knowledge, skills and learning by facilitating volunteering in India’s social development sector’. The establishment of NESSWO in 2009 became a fact after a group of people felt that there was a requirement for more volunteering initiative in India’s development sector. Volunteering was already happening, but, more could be done to benefit both the volunteer as well as the NGO. NESSWO acts as a facilitator between NGOs and volunteers, who come from diverse educational and professional backgrounds, by providing them the right match to utilize their skills in the best possible manner to the beneficiary’s advantage..
