Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Parinaam Foundation
  • About Organization:Even in 2022 India, there are many segments of our population that continue to be invisible and hence, unserved or underserved. The urban poor are invisible — most of them migrants, most illiterate, the voiceless service economy. They lack access to most government programs for the poor and do not have the attention of the city administration. They belong to none, they are attended to by none. And it was to address their needs that the Parinaam Foundation was founded in 2006
