Azad’s journey began in 2008 in Delhi as a Charitable Trust. Driven to shatter patriarchal norms and gender inequalities, the foundation sought the need to find non-traditional livelihood options for poor women in urban areas. The entire motive is achieved through transformative capacity building programs around the self and the skills needed for NTL, based on adult learning principles. To create a supportive environment and introduce non-traditional livelihoods as a new means to live with dignity, they engage with both men and women in their communities through a range of community programmes. Currently, they conduct four major programmes namely – Women on Wheels, Men for Gender Justice, Parvaz Feminist Leadership Program and Azad Kishori 9-12.
