The aspiration of Nari-O-Sishu Kalyan Kendra is for 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, and where the people will survive 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 strives to unfold the downtrodden, marginalized people and to make them self-reliant with particular emphasis on the socio-economic, political and culturally vulnerable groups, like women and children towards attaining the envisioned sustainable society.
