Maitri In Focus



Maitri India is a New Delhi-based developmental humanitarian NGO that is committed to facilitating citizenship rights, basic services, dignity, and respect for the most vulnerable populations in India. We advance our goal of attaining social equity and promoting public health in India through education, community outreach, networking, and legal advocacy.

The organization was founded in 2005 by Gen. (Retd.) Bhopinder Singh and Winnie Singh with the initial goal of generating a much needed awareness among personnel of the uniformed services and their families about health risks such as sexually transmitted infections (STIs) (including HIV/AIDS) and tuberculosis. Following its success in this initial objective, the organization has expanded its reach through a variety of projects since 2007.

Some of Maitri India’s current initiatives include addressing the issue of violence against women (especially in the uniformed forces), running a victim support and victim to survivor program, and promoting dignity and support for abandoned elderly widows in Vrindavan (Mathura, India). Some of our other initiatives include improving the health and welfare of vulnerable migrant populations like rickshaw pullers and the homeless, and providing educational and skill-enhancement opportunities for underprivileged children and women respectively. We also run an Integrated Counseling and Testing Center (ICTC) for HIV/AIDS, manage a Homeless Resource Center (HRC) in the districts of Central Delhi and New Delhi, and facilitate workshops on adolescent issues in schools.
