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
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'. Walk with us in our
journey of thoughts, creation and expressions made possible by the coming together
of the KRITI team...
