Navjyoti Development Society is a national level organization that has been working in the area of social development for the last 20 years. NDS started its threshold venture in 1991 with 5 deprived children who were living in the slums of Okhla Industrial Area, New Delhi. At its inception, NDS is committed to work for the uplifting the life of poor and downtrodden through participation and involvement of all the stakeholders who are directly or indirectly responsible for and affected by it. Since the beginning, the priority has given to the development of the community as a whole distinct emphasis on education. The underprivileged residing in the slums, villages and resettlement colonies of Delhi have been the target population of our organization. At present NDS is working in four states - Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Uttarakhand. A major part of the activism finds its place in Delhi.
Navjyoti Development Society is registered under the Societies Registration Act 1860, Foreign Contribution Act 1976, Tax Exemption Act 1976 and Section 12 A of Income Tax Act 1961.
