Shweta Initiatives


We provide individual & group counseling and also conduct workshops by counselors and psychologists.

Marriage Bureau

Functioning since September 2002 with the help of a few marriage bureaus from Pune, this is one of our most sought-after activities.


Shweta Association offers help to all these people for better placement. Please send your resume to us, if you are unemployed or not happy with current job.

Cosmetic Camouflage

The concept of covering up the patches with simple Foundation Cream after matching the color tone is novel.

Training Program

All organizations need volunteers for conducting day to day activities of the Institution and to organize various programs efficiently.


It is a need of the hour to remove the misconceptions and myths about Vitiligo from the minds of people at large.
