Maitri India


Maitri is a New Delhi-based developmental humanitarian NGO that is committed to facilitating every individual’s Human Rights, especially the Rights to Identity, Dignity and Respect. Since 2005, Maitri has worked with over 45,000 individuals on the issues of social and health inequities and public health concerns through education, community outreach, networking, and legal advocacy.


Oxford Dictionary defines Identity as- the fact of being who or what a person or thing is, a close similarity or affinity, a transformation that leaves an object unchanged. To establish or indicate who or what (someone or something) is. These identities are either obtained or assigned by family, society and civil organization. Maitri works to restores the Identity when deprived of or redefine the identity, which marginalizes people.


We all recognize that we all have a deep, human desire to be treated as something of value. When we indicate that feeling , the expression to another, it is called Dignity for the said person. Maitri commits treating every individual with identity, dignity and respect.


Showing respect to someone means you act in a way that shows you care about his or her feelings and well-being. Showing respect for others include things like not calling people mean names, treating people with courtesy, caring enough about yourself that you don't do things you know can hurt you. Maitri believes in working with and for respect for every person.
