Turning Interest Into Action
A few like-minded friends got together in 2010 with a desire to contribute to society. The functioning started off in small measure by donating warm clothing to villagers in cold winters. The group resolved to form a group and initiate forming up of an NGO and thereafter there was no looking back.
The group spearheaded by their President Lt. (Ex-Army) Sushma Bisht Mathur named themselves 'Navchetna', the word meaning 'New Consciousness' with the endeavour of raising consciousness of people towards women empowerment & child welfare. Navchetna was thereafter legally constituted, as a non-governmental organisation vide Uttarakhand letter no. KPI 208 & Registration no.463 on 31st March 2012.
