Empowering the Community

The urban poor are often devoid of basic entitlements otherwise prescribed to citizens of India. Their capacity to influence systems is extremely restricted. They invariably have limited or no opportunity to make demands on the system, and often operate within frameworks which do not guarantee them their basic entitlements.

Apnalaya empowers the community to help themselves, by imparting Civic Education, building a cadre of Community Volunteers, and organizing people into Civic Action Groups to engage with municipal authorities on issues of common concern.
