KRITI SOCIAL INITIATIVES (Kriti) is a Not-For-Profit organization established in 2009 by like-minded corporate professionals. We are passionate about bettering the lives of the urban poor.

To this end, we focus on empowering economically vulnerable women to become self-reliant and start earning so that they can bring a positive impact on their family’s development.

The second part of our work is with children to ensure that they get basic education. This will give them the foundation to participate in the formal employment sector and improve their livelihood opportunities and life skills.

By working in the areas of economic empowerment of women and education of children, Kriti works towards the larger vision of eliminating urban poverty.

Our Vision

To empower women by helping them find livelihood, better educate their children and improve their sense of well being.

Our Mission

Ensure education to all children. Empower women to ensure fair wages and a steady livelihood.

Kriti was registered as a Public Charitable Trust in 2009. We have section 12A exemption from the Income Tax Department, 80G certification for donors to claim tax exemption on their donations and FCRA registration that enables us to receive funds from abroad.

Kriti is led by its two Trustees who are directly involved in the project implementation and is guided in its work by the Advisory Board.
