Nagrik Foundation Member UN Global Compact
Nagrik Foundation is non –governmental and non-profit organization (NGO) with the objective of community development through innovative interventions required for economic social and environmental sustainability in a given context. Based in Delhi, we work in PAN India to reach out vulnerable communities for development impact and work to achieve sustainable development in Delhi as well as entire nation.
Nagrik Foundation came into existence as a result of the vision of a philanthropic couple Shri Hari Shankar Dwivedi and Mrs. Vimla Devi. Established in 1998 in Hardoi, a rural district of Uttar Pradesh (India), the Nagrik Foundation initially focussed on sector specific development initiatives, particularly in areas of health education and child development. Its initial efforts created great impact and most of its early initiatives like rural health camps and awareness programmes are still continuing and growing.
Started with a humble beginning as small development-catalyst organization, Nagrik Foundation has now transformed into a network organization focussing on creating partnerships for sustainable development in Delhi & outside. Our core capabilities include contextual sustainable development need assessment, network and partnership development and coordinating the development efforts.
We are now focussing on creating national and international multi stakeholders partnerships, contributing to sustainable implementation goals through knowledge sharing and collective action. We focus on advocacy, research, training and capacity building on different issues related to sustainable development.
