Ladli Foundation is a leading grassroots-level non-profit organization known for implementing impactful & innovative social initiatives to provide equ Read moreitable healthcare, education & life skills to uplift vulnerable women. Presently the organization is directly working to address most pressing social issues for the advancement of sustainable development in India through its innovative Social Internship Program by leveraging the strength of over 1 Lac Youth Interns & Volunteers. With a resolute commitment to fostering change, we specialize in the effective implementation of routine immunization, prevention of communicable diseases and advancement of digital education & essential life skills in marginalized communities. The organization has been granted a special consultative status by the United Nations ECOSOC and has been honored with the National Award by the Government of India. This recognition is a result of its impactful social innovations, which are rooted in an action-research model aimed at promoting sustainable living in alignment with the UN SDGs. At the national level in India, the organization collaborates closely with a team of highly skilled grassroots-level social workers, working in tandem with government authorities. Through an effective community outreach and sustainable approach, it is making tangible changes. Moreover, the organization is actively engaged in strategic partnerships, including with USAID, Union & State Governments in India to enhance the coverage of Routine Immunization, Covid-19 vaccination, and Eradication of Tuberculosis in India. During the 65th Session of the Commission on the Status of Women, the organization received recognition from the UN Secretary-General, Mr. António Guterres, for its advocacy in prioritizing Women's Health and the elimination of Child Marriages in developing countries as part of the efforts to achieve Gender Equality (SDG5). On an international scale, its subsidiary "Ladli Foundation USA," operating as a 501 (C)(3) non-profit corporation, is diligently working in the United States to contribute to the realization of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


Driven by concerns of health, education & equality for vulnerable women as an integral and critical dimension of human rights, Ladli Foundation became a reality in 2012 as a grassroots social catalyst. It was founded by Devendra Kumar, whose incredible journey began as a child laborer in a poverty-stricken environment. Where he faced numerous hardships and atrocities during his orphaned and challenging childhood. Born in a crime-prone slum, he endured abandonment by his parents, who left him with his three-day-old infant sister when he was just two years old. Despite these adversities, Devendra's indomitable spirit and resilience led him to find solace and purpose in serving others. Driven by his determination to protect his sister from child marriage and dowry, Devendra founded the "Ladli Foundation" with the noble mission of uplifting the oppressed and disadvantaged. His personal experiences as a child laborer and his encounters with delinquents and drug addicts further fueled his commitment to making a positive impact in the lives of those facing similar challenges.


"Over the last decade, the Ladli Foundation has been an exemplar in grassroots action, with a steadfast focus on healthcare and education. From spearheading large-scale COVID-19 vaccination drives and routine immunization efforts to organising primary health camps combating tuberculosis and HIV, the Ladli Foundation has been at the forefront. Their commitment to education is equally remarkable, with initiatives spanning digital education for marginalised students, setting up smart classes, and pioneering gender equality through large-scale events like the monumental Half-Marathon and the extensive Street Play drive. Notably, Ladli Foundation's mega-initiatives include the world's largest international Kanya-Pujan event, aimed at providing sustainable education and healthcare to vulnerable girls. Additionally, their Shagun Mass Weddings initiative has made significant strides in eradicating child marriages and human trafficking. Their groundbreaking JOSH initiative steers young boys away from drug abuse and crime, channelling their energy into sports and skill development. Furthermore, their compassionate response to the COVID-19 pandemic deserves applause; they provided dry rations, milk, and personal hygiene kits to migrant labourers, easing their hardships during lockdowns. These laudable programmes and mega-events have been witnessed and recognised by esteemed dignitaries, including the Hon'ble President of India, Union Home Minister, Minister of Social Justice, Women and Child Development, Youth Affairs, Department Secretaries of the Government of India, international diplomats, Bollywood celebrities, and other dignitaries."


With a remarkable impact on over 2.5 million direct beneficiaries, Ladli Foundation has been recognized for its outstanding contributions. Notably, the foundation's recent achievements include enabling digital education access for more than 282,000 marginalized students, yielding a remarkable impact valued at INR 600 Crore (approximately 75 million USD), all achieved independently without any external financial aid or grants. Furthermore, As an Exclusive NGO Partner with Govt of Delhi, the Organization is Implementing Its Social Innovations for creating sustainable solution for eradicating malnutrition among 8,00,000 marginalized students in the city.

The program aimed to divert their attention away from substance abuse and channel their energy into psychologically, physically, and socially productive endeavors. This project, initiated by the Ladli Foundation in collaboration with the Delhi Police, employed the M.D.I. formula of psychological counseling: Motivate, Divert, and Involve.

    The project recognized the importance of motivation as a driving force for positive change. By instilling a sense of purpose and ambition in the young participants, the program aimed to inspire them to make better choices and pursue healthy lifestyles. Through counseling sessions and mentorship, the youth were encouraged to envision a brighter future and understand the negative consequences of drug addiction.
