Message from President
Since the outset of my leadership, I have resolved to undertake the herculean task of attempting to bring about social change for which we have painstakingly worked out NGO's goals in minute detail and we are structuring the organisation in such a way that the goals are met within the decade.
The Navchetna Society will remain a seriously devoted organisation that will work not in confrontation with the government of the day but in conformity so that the even the government's initiatives are brought to the masses for whom they are meant.
Under my Presidency, Navchetna has worked towards our primary aim of "women empowerment and child welfare" in Uttarakhand. We currently operate in some of the remotest villages of the state and focus on - Education, Health and Employment.
We firmly believe - Education needn’t be limited to just pen and paper; anything that can empower a person to lead informed, fruitful and independent lives is of value. In our NGO, Navchetna, we have thus incorporated various programmes in the field of education; ranging from free tuition and free computer classes for village children to establishment of self help groups for legal/banking assistance & healthcare advice. In addition to a host of numerous activities in education , the NGO also undertakes activities in the filed of health. We have organised numerous blood donation camps, free health camps for women & children and promoting health awareness by having workshops on nutrition and hygiene by some of the leading doctors of the region. Providing vocational courses such as 'free sewing classes' for village women, encouraging some of the dying cultural Uttarakhand art forms and promoting 'disability sports' have been our initial few steps in the field of employment.
The NGO intends to make our land a place where every individual is empowered through quality education to realize their full potential and contribute to transforming societies where gender equality becomes a reality. I seek support from all who associate with the NGO and help in achieving its vision.
