The KRITI team works on social and sustainable development issues and human rights of the underprivileged and marginalised in India & across the world. Through a cross- cutting and unbiased analysis of class, caste, gender, ability, age, religion & region in our work, we aim to make development theory & practice holistic, people-oriented and more accountable. Based in New Delhi, we are a registered organisation and all donations are eligible for tax exemption.
We conduct research and documentation and capacity building programmes; create design and communication resources and campaigns; and provide action and networking support at the grass-roots and national level. Our partnerships are expansive to include women’s and youth groups; national and international civil society organisations; individual activists, students, academicians, media persons and performing artists. Our community programme provides children, youth and women from marginalised and low income backgrounds an opportunity for education, safety from domestic violence and sexual abuse, decent jobs and livelihood support. Our information and networking initiatives serve as a hub for diverse knowledge resources, promote thought provoking cinema and offer solidarity with people's struggles for rights. Our livelihood and ecological initiatives positively enhance the lives of large numbers of marginalised and low income families across the country, and enable citizens to make an 'ecofootprint' through sustainable living and working options.
We are an inter-disciplinary team of development practitioners and professionals working in this space since 1999. Any mention of our team is not complete without a word about our volunteers and interns whose valuable contributions of time and effort keeps us going even as a small team.

Since the processes of social and developmental change require consistent effort, handholding and learning from collective experiences, we seek to establish long-term working relationships that help realise our vision of 'praxis'.
