HumaraBachpan Trust (HBT) is a not-for profit organization advocating for safe and healthy living conditions with improved socio-economic status of communities living in poverty. It is led by children, youth and women who identify the issues, prioritize them and propose solutions to address those issues before the appropriate authorities. The focus of our work is creating an enabling built environment, public -civic engagements, community participation in urban and rural governance and empowerment through enterprise and entrepreneurship.
HumaraBachpan Trust works at par with the United Nation’s ‘New Urban Agenda’ for sustainable urbanization with children, youth and women to have their voices heard and make them active participants in planning and shaping their cities to socially smart cities.
In March 2017, HBT launched its women initiative SAMBHAVI which is an innovative model of women empowerment with capacity building for enterprise and entrepreneurship for women living in poverty. Its goal is to develop entrepreneurship and employability among women living in poverty both urban and rural with strong handholding support, improved adaptability and provide a strong post-training support to create higher sustainability. We started our initiatives with children, youth and women in rural areas in February 2018.
