RWWCO is the apex body of the chain of Women’s Welfare Organizations spread over all Indian Railways, engaged in the task of welfare of railway personnel and their family members through various need-based socio-welfare activities. The organization started its activities in 1962 after the Indo-China War. While the primary concern of the organisation is the welfare of Railway employees and their family members, it has always risen to the call of the society and the nation – be it the pandemic, environmental awareness, family welfare drives, disturbances on the borders or the natural calamities. It is one of the fore-runner voluntary organisations in the country today.
