The aspiration of Nari-O-Sishu Kalyan Kendra is a self- reliant Society, based on human values like cooperation, participation, justice, respect and love. It would be a Society where people will participate in a decentralized political process, where the economy will be based on localized production and consumption. The environment will be free from pollution and exploitation; the people will sustain with their own indigenous socio-cultural identity. The envisioned society will be free from the forces of patriarchy and will be more peaceful and harmonious.
The Nari-O-Sishu Kalyan Kendra aims to unfold and empower the oppressed and marginalized people to make them self-reliant and confident. The main focus is laid on the socially, economically, politically and culturally vulnerable groups like women and children. Therefore, we work together to achieve the envisioned sustainable society.
✓ To develop human potentiality and critical awareness of the vulnerable groups of people and motivate them towards their empowerment
✓ To enhance the knowledge and skills of the referenced groups so they are able to strive for a sustainable development through process of participation
✓ To create awareness for gender equality regarding health, education, environment and economic action as well as making them capable of carrying their development journey
✓ Formation of Self-help Groups with the help of micro credits to create a secure base for the incoming generation among the vulnerable sections
