When society flourishes,
Crime doesn’t

Social trends and demographic patterns continually influence the rates of crime. Social conditions such as housing, family income and education leave their deepest marks on children and youth. Increase in child poverty, restricted accessibility to jobs and education, reductions in earning for families, etc. have all been found to affect the number and composition of those who encounter our criminal justice system.

Improvements in these social conditions have been shown to open new panoramas for youth who might otherwise end up behind bars. By investing in youth and providing them with positive life experiences, we can considerably bring down crime rates and victimization. Extensive evaluations demonstrate that social interventions to a great extent are successful in curbing crime and thereof aid in positive economic and social growth of the country. Researchers conclude that social interventions can yield positive, measurable financial and social benefits within three years, with reductions in crime.

We envision challenge the socio-economic inequalities and enable the vulnerable sections of the society towards the goal of self-reliance.

Our mission is to mobilize and harness the power of children, youth, women and people at large to approach illiteracy, ignorance, gender discrimination and the evil of drug addiction with an ultimate aim of crime prevention and inclusive socio-economic development.

Our vision as part of a Global Development Goal

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are based on the principles of social, economic and environmental factors and embracing these three fundamental principles, is our founding philosophy towards the Crime Prevention through Social Development (CPSD).

Our programs aim to bring in change interventions by working towards eradicating poverty, hunger, discrimination against women and girl child. We identify that ending poverty and other deprivations must collaborate with strategies that advances health and education, reduce inequality and spur economic growth. Working on a comprehensive action plan for sustainable development to improve human lives and protect the environment and ecology, reducing poverty, tackling climate change is the goal we strive to achieve each day.
