Started in 1997

EFRAH is an NGO formed in 1997 with an aim to build a society based on socio-economic justice, social sensitivity, and empowering disadvantaged groups in a manner that they become self-reliant and work collectively for social change.

The name EFRAH comes from the Empowerment For Rehabilitation, Academic & Health, founded in New Delhi on 17th March 1999. We started with 150 children of vegetable vendors in the Okhla vegetable market area to mitigate child labour and mainstream those children with school for the sake of regular education.

To build a society based on promoting socio-economic justice, social sensitivity and empowerment of deprived groups, to enable them to become self-reliant and work collectively for social change.



EFRAH has always considered children and young people as an integral part of all its programme and youth participation as being vital to the success of the programme. Addressing the needs of ‘out of school’ children (especially girls) is a major challenge faced by the government and development agencies. EFRAH has designed certain innovative strategies to address this ‘difficult to reach’ and yet ‘vulnerable’ population and the efforts in this direction have been widely appreciated. Various platforms have been created to provide an opportunity to children and adolescent girls to enter into the mainstream of development.
