National Rural Research and Development Association (NARAD), established in 1999, focusses on education, water harvesting, child education & providing training in rural areas of Thane district in Maharashtra. It is currently working in more than 75 villages and aims to take this number to 350.

Key Activities are:

  • En-light a Girl Child Project: This project, implemented in Jawhar Block, targets 5,000 girls from class 6th to 12th. It is a unique sustainable initiative towards addressing two crucial issues, one of perennial darkness in the rural households and the other of Girl Child Empowerment. LED lights are provided to girls studying in government schools in power deficient regions thereby replacing kerosene lamps with LED lights so that girls can study in their free time.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Projects: The Talyachapada Project was initiated by NARAD at Talyachapada village with support of "Sabic Innovative Plastic Ltd". The main activities include availability of drinking water, environment protection, awareness of health and hygiene, and women empowerment. NARAD surveyed and searched water sources near the village and drilled up to 500 ft. and found sufficient water which was lifted using the installed solar pump. Villagers are now getting enough pure drinking water. NARAD also periodically organizes villagers’ meetings and teaches them about sanitation and hygiene. TATA Consultancy Engineering has appointed NARAD to implement the Khorichapada Project which includes water survey of the village, awareness activities, roof water harvesting and volunteering activities. 350 villagers and 80 households are benefitting by getting regular supply of water.
  • Tree Plantation: NARAD has initiated tree plantation campaign in Jawhar block. The campaign has got huge response from farmers. Total 1.5 lakh trees are planted on farmers’ waste land and 40 farmers have planted trees.
