Apnalaya is a non-profit organisation founded in 1973. It works with underserved urban communities with an integrated community development approach. Focused thematic areas of the organisation are Health & Disability, Education & Livelihoods, and Citizenship & Advocacy.
Citizenship & Advocacy is a structured programme where we seek to enable under-served people to participate in their development as active citizens of the country. It stands on four pillars of Self-Awareness, Social Awareness, Critical Thinking and Civic Action. The programme has demonstrated success in creating empowered citizens (Adolescents, youth and adults) in M East ward, the most under-served ward of Mumbai.
Apnalaya is looking for a Director for the Citizenship & Advocacy vertical. If you are passionate about driving a programme that seeks to develop change makers and impact urban governance, this role could be for you.
