• EMPOWERING THE
    URBAN POOR
    OF INDIA

  •  

APNALAYA uplifts the urban poor – enabling access to basic services, healthcare, education and livelihoods; empowering them to help themselves; and ensuring provision of civic entitlements through advocacy with the government.

INDIA'S URBAN
POOR

With the increase in urbanization in India, the intergenerational deprivation, vulnerability , exclusion, and insecurity of the urban poor is on the rise – and will worsen by 2030.

  • The urban poor are deprived of basic human needs (food and water);

  • They are devoid of civic amenities (sanitation, electricity, garbage disposal);

  • They lack access to healthcare, education and livelihood opportunities;

  • They struggle to survive under the constant threat of loss of livelihood and tenure.
