The Naz Foundation (India) Trust, a New Delhi based NGO, was founded in 1994 with an aim of addressing the issue of HIV/AIDS. Through the years Naz India has evolved to construct and implement a holistic approach to combat HIV, to reduce stigma related to the virus by sensitising the masses of the prevalence of HIV, along with making efforts to improve the health of the affected and empowering their families. We also aim to sensitise the general population to the prevalence of HIV, and to highlight issues related to sexuality and sexual health.
Humanity Foundation aims to provide an all round support to such people, from food, shelter, medical care to making them economically independent. Constant mental support and guidance encourages them to achieve more.
Volunteer at the Naz India-run Care Home in Delhi for children living with HIV/AIDS – help them learn art, craft, music, dance or any other activity or just spend some time with them.
Naz India opened its arms to HIV-positive orphans to create a care home in 2001, after a child was abandoned at our doorstep; since then, 46 kids have lived with us. The Naz Care home provides the children with a stigma-free, healthy environment and gives them care and support to make them self-sufficient individuals who lead independent and dignified lives. The Naz Care Home was founded on the belief that all children have a fundamental right to a loving, fun-filled childhood with access to health, education, and a safe, stigma-free environment. The National AIDS Controlled Organisation (NACO) had designated the Naz Care Home as a Community Care Centre for Children in 2009.
Naz India initiated a women empowerment programme ‘Goal’ with Standard Chartered Bank in 2006 in Delhi. Goal is an award winning sport for development programme, which uses sport and life skills education to transform lives of adolescent girls. It is primarily designed for adolescent girls between the ages of 12-18 who are living in underserved communities. Goal is offered on a weekly basis, over the course of ten months. Goal uses netball and life skill curriculum that covers various topics like communication, peer pressure, sexual and reproductive health and rights, menstruation, and financial literacy.
