STRATEGY OF ISWS
Indian Social welfare Society analyses all the problems using a simple rule that “Problem is like a tree, and every tree has its roots”. It assumes reasons for every problem and states that only its effects are visible, not the roots/reasons. So, the first step towards its solution is its understanding, which is done using Problem Analysis.
