Being the largest NGO, AWWA funds are judiciously expended to benefit a large cross-section of our Army fraternity. AWWA provides ex-gratia grants to families of deceased soldiers, education scholarships to the children of widows and certain distress grants. It also contributes towards managing ASHA Schools for differently abled children. For socio-economic empowerment of widows AWWA invests in certain useful micro projects/ ventures which makes them self dependent.
All ladies widowed after the retirement of their husbands are eligible for educational scholarship grant. The following categories of student are supported by AWWA:-
A onetime grant of Rs 15000/- is being given as a token of immediate financial relief from AWWA to the next of kin of all ranks of the Army who die in harness. This amount is supposed to be given by the unit/formation/institution/establishment immediately on demise of a soldier and reimbursed by AWWA subsequently.
AWWA provides ex-gratia to the family of the deceased soldier, educational scholarship to the children of widows of ex-servicemen and distress grants during both natural calamities and economic penury. The details of grants are given in succeeding paras.
