Society in HaldwaniHaldwani, which was originally called ‘Halduvani’, was established in 1834. Haldwani, being so close to the famous cities like Nainital and Ramnagar, attracts the tourists, who enjoy the site of the beautiful mountains, the local markets, the unique cuisines, etc. There are many things that Haldwani offers to the tourists as well as the local people. But some of the people of the city of Haldwani have seen bad days. Yes, there are people living in slums in and around Haldwani.
This is where the societies come in and play their part. Some societies are private and some are part of the government, but their aim is the same - the betterment of the people. Haldwani, in the recent years has seen a growth of such societies in its areas. People and children of Haldwani have started hoping again.
The main duty of such societies is to basically help the helpless. Handicapped children are taken care of. They are given education so that in spite of their weaknesses, they can make their future bright. Homeless people are given shelter. Hungry people are given food. Basically, such societies are the saving grace for people who have lost all hope in the world.
