Nishtha wins Award

We are very pleased to hear that Nishtha, our partner in India who implements this project have one an award. The title that they won is 'Volunteer Involving NGO of the year', conferred onto them by the Appejay India Volunteer Awards 2011.

In practice, this aware celebrates how Nishtha is capacity-building and entrusting local volunteers at all levels of the project. For example, volunteers are involved at a grassroots level during the planning of projects, and then go on to help with implementation - be it as peer educators, community mobilisers and women's group facilitators.


Karuna is very pleased and proud to be affiliated with Nishtha, who are changing the lives not only of adolescent girls in West Bengal, but are giving local people the opportunity and capacity to contribute to the upliftment of disadvantaged people.
