Doing it the NAAM Way :
NAAM strongly believes that a onetime monetary assistance will only cause the
problem to recur; instead what is needed is a deeper problem analysis and addressing the
issues arising out of this problem. NAAM Foundation is doing just that. We are working on a scientific way of resolving the issue. Here we talk to them, assure them of our support, counsel them and try to understand what they really need. Their needs and requirements are classified, assessed and addressed.
So far, Naam has helped empower about 100 women in the last 11 months. Based on
their individual requirements Naam supports them with educational aids, for their children, provides medical assistance, better job and self-employment opportunities through counseling & skills training, so that they can look forward to a future of hope and advancement.
