Before education, before financial independence, before empowerment of any kind, come basic amenities. This is what our urban poor deserve, first.
It is for this that Parinaam started a unique initiative in 2017, the Community Development Program. It was (and is) unique because transforming the community at the infrastructure level is an extremely complicated, time-consuming and demanding task.
The effort is to walk together with residents of the communities and set up health care centers, maternity clinics, school buildings, community centers and the like and provide access to solar energy, safe water and more.
