We move with a purpose of change, a sustainable change for good making a better world. Every project and every activity that NCT involves in is towards achieving this single minded goal. This is our lifeline. We know for sure that we can only achieve our goals in collaboration with people like you in the society. We need your supportive hands to go ahead and in partnership with you, we aim at achieving, “Together, for a Better World”.
Though there are many projects that we implement in realizing our goal, there is something special to us. Education of girl children. With education, we know for sure, the girl children of next generation will have their dignity, respect and honour in the society. With education and earning capacity, independence of life grows. When a woman starts earning, her dignity and self-esteem grow and her outlook of the world changes. She finds a new and flourishing world around her. A self-confident woman keeps her head up and is ready for challenges. This is possible with education and economic empowerment.
What is special to us? Education of girl children and economic empowerment of women.
Our long term commitment to the society is, ‘get rid of’ selling girl children to overcome poverty. NCT wants to show the poor families, there is always a way possible to challenge poverty, but surely not selling girl children.
In order to give top priority in all our common programmes, we make sure, 65% of the beneficiaries are women/girls. To make them economically independent which gives a greater say for women in their homes, we train them employable vocational skills training, form them into micro credit groups.
