About Navjyoti India Foundation:

Founded by Dr. Kiran Bedi along with 16 police officers, since our inception in 1988 we have been working seamlessly towards the upliftment of underprivileged sections of the society and provide marginalized groups with an opportunity to live a dignified life. Focusing at the grassroot level, our approach comprises advocacy, spreading awareness, policy intervention which has helped us take substantial strides towards crime prevention.

Our idea of crime prevention through social development is to foster interventions intended to reduce or eliminate the motives for crime before they arise which we intent to facilitate by of promoting education among underprivileged, micro-entrepreneurship, development of provision of healthcare, livelihood for children and women affected by the lack of resources.

We are part of a Global Development Goal:

Our women empowerment program addresses SDG 1 (End poverty in all its form and everywhere), SDG 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower women and girls), SDG 8 and SDG 10 (Reduce inequality within and among the countries). This is possible by creating employment for women and bridging the gap with their male counterparts. Our health awareness program promotes SDG 3 promoting healthy lives and well being for all the ages.
