Our Programmes

Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging country like India, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself, and their education is the cornerstone of this progress. But education for children cannot be achieved without ensuring the welfare of the family – a child can go to school regularly only when the family, particularly the mother is healthy and empowered; the family has decent livelihood opportunities and a steady income. 

Various studies, as well as our experience, have shown that when women are supported and empowered, the whole society benefits. Their families are healthier, children go to school, income levels improve and communities become more prosperous. But unfortunately in India, far from being empowered, most women are denied even their basic rights like health, education, employment and a respectable status in society. 

According to UNDP Human Development Report (2009), 88% of pregnant women (age 15-49) were found to be suffering from anemia. India has a dangerously imbalanced sex ratio, the chief reason being female infanticides and sex-selective abortions. According to UNICEFs State of the Worlds Children-2009 report, 47% of Indias women aged 20–24 were married before the legal age of 18.

 Our programs identify adolescent girls and women from the community and develops them into Change Agents, who in turn actively contribute to the community mobilization process.

 So far, Nayana Trust has successfully made a difference to the lives of over 90 underprivileged women and adolescent girls.

It is crucial that the young energy of our country is channelized correctly in economic growth and nation building to elude their addition to family woes, social stress and national misery.
