INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW

Maitri is a developmental humanitarian NGO based out of New Delhi, India. The organization was born out of a felt need  to fill in the gaps in awareness about essential health impacting information such as STI’s, HIV/AIDS and TB for the uniformed services and their families. Since 2007, Maitri has expanded its areas of reach through a variety of programs. These programs include domestic violence awareness, victim support and victim-to- survivor program (with a special focus on the uniformed services and their families)  Maitri also promotes respect, dignity, and support for abandoned elderly widows in Vrindavan (Mathura, India). Some of our other initiatives include improving the health and welfare of vulnerable migrant populations like rickshaw pullers and the homeless.
