NGO Profile :
Parinaam Foundation has the vision to create sustainable change that will impact the poor and help them lead better lives by providing them critical social services. They operate in 20 states and have helped over half a million people so far.

Their programs include:

  • Diksha Financial Literacy Program: This is Parinaam’s largest program in terms of reach and is designed to give low income families the knowledge and tools (in 12 languages) they need to save safely, reduce financial risk, and make informed, intelligent financial decisions. Parinaam has trained 640,728 women so far, 85% of these graduated the 5-week course. 23,512 opened bank accounts and 66% availed cashless loans. Since its inception, Diksha has covered over 3,70,000 women. Preliminary indications from a 2015 survey assess how Diksha trainees gained: 84% of them were able to save at an average of ₹35,000 in a year; 70% found it easy to use their bank accounts; while 77% are aware of the cashless facility.  
  • Urban Ultra Poor Program: The program aims at tackling generational and familial poverty rather than providing isolated individual female support. The intensive program covers five critical components, namely, Livelihood, Healthcare, Childcare & Education, Social Services and Financial Literacy which are delivered over a period of 12 months, with additional 12 months monitoring, if required. The ultimate goal is to generate a steady income for the participants so they are eligible for microfinance. Since inception in 2009, the program has reached 65 communities, 4,405 primary beneficiaries, 17,450 members, and an 99% employment rate among active and graduated beneficiaries.
  • Education/Health Care Programs: Parinaam believes that education is the most effective tool to tackle generational poverty.  Their interventions are: (a) Academic Adoption Program - Sponsors make yearly donations to cover the expenses of a child’s education and are given regular progress reports (FY18: 499 children). (b) Higher Education Scholarship - It aims to bridge the gap for poor children who want to pursue higher education but dropout due to financial constraints (FY18: 219 scholarships).  In FY18, 203children underwent a multi-specialty annual Health Check-Up.
