NGO Profile :
Ratna Nidhi Charitable Trust (RNCT) was set up to tackle the problem of poverty in Mumbai among young children. It provided food to school children, mobility aids to the disabled, vocational training and educational sponsorship. It has expanded its operations to countries like Afghanistan, Sudan, Kenya and Burundi.

Key Activities:

In FY13, 32% of expenses were on medical relief whereas in FY14 (total income fell 66% YoY), 29% was spent on Nutrition for school children.

  • Food for Education project: RNCT has partnered with many schools and NGOs in Mumbai to provide healthy and freshly prepared food for school children. Around 4,500 to 5,000 meals are provided daily, reaching around 3,000 children every day. Some of the new NGOs they have partnered with are CORP, Sujaya Foundation, Masoom, Sunrise, Childrens Aid Society, Gharkool and Buniyaad.
  • Mobility camps for Rehabilitation of the Disabled: The NGO holds camps at various locations across India. The camps are organised over several days to provide mobility aids to the disabled. In FY13, RNCT reached out to more beneficiaries than in other years due to a 13-day Mega Mobility camp held at Palitana, in the Bhavnagar district of Gujarat. Around 11,300 beneficiaries were given mobility aids and hearing aids in FY13; this number fell to 2,057 in FY14. RNCT also donated hospital equipment to various trusts.
  • Educational Sponsorship: RNCT continues to sponsor the education of 245 children who lost their parents to terror attacks in Mumbai in 2008 and 2011.
  • Vocational Training: During the year, RNCT provided training in running small businesses and other vocations to street children and those in remand homes. Around 900 youngsters were trained in FY14 versus 3,216 in FY13.
  • Garments project: RNCT distributed around 45,000 garments that it received from its partners abroad to various NGOs such as Reliance Foundation, Dharampur Agricultural Rural Development, Shrimad Rajchandra Mission, Slum Rehabilitation Society and Nashik Adivasi Mahila Seva.
