To contribute for the consistent endeavor towards enhancing capacity of individuals and communities to understand comprehensive framework of “health” in terms of science and art. Vatsalya has been operational in many districts of Uttar Pradesh working at ground and state level on the issues of child right, health and nutrition. Our prime focus have been to curb female foeticide by advocating the issue for strict implementation of PC-PNDT Act at district, state and national level.
Our primary aim is to strengthen and empower the micro NGOs and communities working on health, child survival, child right and gender equality issues at grass root level. Along with this, we also take up advocacy of issues pertaining to health imbalances at different levels by demonstrating workable models and creating larger environment for change.
Our vision is to achieve harmonious human development in conjunction with the health of all by fighting against all kinds and forms of unfairness and prejudice prevalent in the society.
