Current Partners

We intend to forge long term partnerships with people and organizations who have an approach that is in sync with our goals and motives, and are able to contribute to our activities in an efficient and a comprehensive manner. It is crucial that our partners share with us a deep understanding of the issues we wish to tackle, as well our inherent motivation to resolve these issues for as many people as we can. It is only through collective effort that we will be able to create a society in which everyone’s access to the necessities of daily life is ensured.

Currently, we have partnered with Lovedale as well as a few other NGOs with whom we share certain visions and missions regarding the well-being of individuals in our society.

From The Founder

There was always in me a passion to serve the needy to the best of my abilities and Kritagyata was born out of that passion. After spending over a decade working with various NGOs and doing several Volunteer Social Projects, I realized that the cracks within the societal wall just grew deeper and deeper as one plunged into it. As I became aware of how much disparity exists in our society and how unequal opportunities govern the lives of so many individuals, I decided to take things one step ahead and started working towards fixing these cracks in whatever little capacities I could. Kritagyata Trust finally saw the light of day and has been the source through which I try to fulfill my dream of giving back to society and making people’s lives better.

Then came a moment when I, after months of introspection and encouragement from various people, finally decided to walk on a path which is not taken by many. Starting Kritagyata was my way of expressing gratitude towards the God who has given me a wonderful and a meaningful life; for my family who always stood by me as I tried to give back to society, in all the capacity I could. So many individuals currently in the lower strata of the society did not choose the circumstances they were born in, and if we are the ones who are blessed with certain privileges, then we should try and redress the imbalance that exists in our society.

The vision and the ideal with which I want to carry Kritagyata forward is to ensure that our quality of work and service is always retained, and our commitment to the cause of helping others always remains intact. We are very grateful for the incredible support we get from individuals and organizations because it is that support that makes our work possible. We hope that this support continues, so that we get to a place where all human beings become able to live life with dignity, respect and comfort. So even though Kritagyata might be in its sprouting stage as of now, it will soon bloom into a big tree that would provide shelter to as many people as possible.
