We are delighted to share with you that ActionAid Association has recently been felicitated with ‘Best NGO Award 2019’ by the Delhi Minorities Commission. That’s not all! Tanveer Kazi, leading ActionAid Association’s North India office, has been presented the ‘Supporters of Minorities Award 2019’.

ActionAid Association has, for long, been working for the rights and safety of minorities across the country. These communities have been disadvantaged and vulnerable and continue to live in deprivation and backwardness – socially, educationally as well as economically. Efforts to ensure their socio-economic well-being, safety, security and overall empowerment have been at the centre of all our interventions. We have been actively working towards ensuring that the benefits of various government schemes and entitlements reach the most disadvantaged among the minority communities. We have been standing in solidarity with them in their struggle for equality and justice.

More recently, in the wake of violence in North-East Delhi in February 2020, our teams were almost immediately on the ground and responding. We helped assess the nature and extent of damage suffered by local communities and worked out ways to rebuild lives and livelihoods, besides trying to restore amity. We also reached out with relief material to the worst-affected families.
