Network for Enterprise Enhancement and Development Support (NEEDS)

In 1998, the Network for Enterprise Enhancement and Development Support (NEEDS) initiated its first intervention in selected poverty pockets in Jharkhand state. It started out with a mission to combat household food insecurity and to empower women to exercise self-help around this issue. Gradually, four needs-based programmatic areas of the organisation evolved: child protection and education, SRHR, WASH, as well as sustainable livelihoods, including food security. NEEDS works closely with local communities while actively conducting networking and advocacy activities on issues that impact human rights and communities’ rights to decent living.
