Sustainable and Inclusive Urbanization in Patna

Diksha Foundation entered in partnership with UNFPA and Patna Municipal Corporation for developing Patna into a socially smart and inclusive city. The partnership focuses on lifelong learning. Our engagement in this project covers training of Sanitation Workers, Ward Councilors, youth and women resident in vulnerable slum communities.  We are providing them training and building their capacities to inculcate in them health, safety and leadership skills. We are working in 50 slums in Patna for gender equality and citizen engagement.
