Whom We Work For?

Navnirman Samaj Vikas Kendra works with highly marginalized communities in the slums of Mumbai. According to 2011 Census, Mumbai has the highest slum-dwelling population in India pegged at around 55-60% of the entire city population. These spaces pose complex and specific problems with poor sanitation and hygiene conditions, lack of resources, lack of basic amenities and poor health and educational infrastructures for the ever-exploding populace.

We work with households in 7 different geographically spread locations across Greater Mumbai with their unique challenges. Dharavi, Asia’s largest slum settlement, Malwani – a growing slum settlement built upon salt-pans and mangroves; whereas Chandivali is an area peculiarly known for slum rehabilitated families. The specifically work with the populace who fall under the poor quintile of economic indicator viz. people below poverty line (BPL) or close to it.
