NGO Lahar Foundation
The NGO Lahar Foundation boasts itself as a non-profitable, non-political and non-religious organization. It has been registered under the Indian Trust Act. 1882 on 25-April-2013. The areas in which it focuses are human trafficking, environment and community development.
The Yamuna Pollution
From past several years we are getting the news of increasing Yamuna pollution. The shocking fact is that even after consuming its water, people of Delhi are not bothered to save it. Yamuna is often listed as the most polluted river in India and also comes under top 10 most polluted rivers in the world.
It’s not that government has never tried to solve the issue. The Delhi as well as the Central government both have drafted several policies like the very common Yamuna Action Plan. But even after more than 2 decades of its launch and 3 phases, no significant change is observed and in some areas the situation has even deteriorated to a further extent.
Since the governmental efforts have turned to be highly ineffective, many NGOs have decided to work on this issue. One such NGO which is working hard on the ground to curb Yamuna Pollution in Delhi is NGO Lahar Foundation.
Community Development (Women & Child)
In community development it focuses on women empowerment. The NGO works on economic initiatives, skill building, micro-enterprises, entrepreneurship development, health & child empowerment. The main aim is to spread some awareness about the legal rights of women, hence making them self-reliant.
The thrust of the organization’s philosophy and program approach has always been to help the people and make them to be self-reliant and strong enough to take decision in the problem solving processNGO Lahar Foundation
