DBM INDIA serves all people regardless of religion, caste, race, ethnicity or gender. It is under the legal umbrella of Navasrushti International Trust and has set its objective as creating Hunger-Free-Communities. With a modest beginning of providing Midday meal in one school to 50 children, the organization has grown to a commendable force having its own infrastructure facilities providing education, health care, livelihood skills, empowerment and placements. Although initially the focus of the organization was on dealing with the issue of hunger, experiences at ground level drew to light that along with providing meals to arrest malnutrition and child mortality we also need to address issues that are the background reasons which are actually preventing our progress and development.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are designed to end poverty, hunger, AIDS, and discrimination against women and girls, adopted by United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity. There are 17 goals that are integrated to irradicate the problems mentioned above. And we are working on two of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), i.e., Goal 1- NO POVERTY and Goal 4- QUALITY EDUCATION.
