Organization Description:
IZAD is an idea of social change, founded on 22nd August, 2002. ‘IZAD” is an Urdu language word which means ‘Invention’. The organization seeks to endeavour relentlessly to lessen human pain and suffering and to foster development of weaker sections on sustained basis.
The founder of the organization is backed by professional education of social work from
Institutes of Social Service, Bihar and had dedicated 17 years in practicing and translating the theory into action.
IZAD started over eleven years ago, in 2003, as a social organisation seeking to reach out to the most marginalised and vulnerable communities of the Indian subcontinent. Through the experience gained over the years and through constant evaluation, the organisation realised the need to change its approach. It thus moved from being a mere funding agency to a development organisation striving to make a difference in the lives of the vulnerable and the backward through meaningful partnerships with grass root NGOs and communities. IZAD is registered under the Societies Registration Act & Foreign Contribution Regulation Act.
