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.Learn More
EFRAH is committed to the holistic development of people living in dehumanized and deprived conditions in the society, without any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed and religion.
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.
Our overarching aim is to enable the community members to understand and be confident in their right, working together to demand and secure their entitlements supporting CBOs to lead public information campaigns and advocacy events in their communities, such as mass rallies, interactive meetings and public hearings, to teach others about their rights.Learn More

Not everyone in the population has the same risk of acquiring or transmitting HIV. Most of the HIV transmission in India occurs within groups or networks of individuals who have higher levels of risk due to a higher number of sexual partners or the sharing of injection drug equipment.Learn More
