& Slum Development Organisation cherishes to serve
people in distress and destitute and help them out in
leading a productive, prosperous and peaceful life.
can be no denial that people living in villages and
urban slums face deprivation, marginalization and
destitution in various parts of the country and call for
many hands to join endeavours for alleviating their
conditions. According to Census of India 2001, over 70%
population in India lives in rural areas whereas 22.58%
of population in 607 cities and towns of the country
comprise slum dwellers. Delhi harbours one of the major
conglomerates of slum dwellers with over 2 million
people living in slum areas contributing around
one-fourth of Delhi's population. Other metros have
almost the similar trends. Both these categories of
people are highly backward and deprived even of the
basic amenities of human life what to speak of their
education, health, social and economic conditions.
Hence, these hapless people deserve all out efforts for
their upliftment. Our organisation keeps this
under-development segment of society in its sharp focus
and intends to serve these people in various ways.

the basic causes of their backwardness and to persuade
them to change the course of life.

4. To create opportunities for better livelihood of the
rural and slum families.
5. To fight for the cause of the target segments and
arouse their spirits to struggle for a better life.

systems of education.
