About the NGO

Naz Foundation

Naz Foundation

Naz Foundation (India) Trust is a Delhi-based organization that has been at the forefront of the battle against Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code that discriminates against individuals based on their sexual orientation. In 2001, the organization filed a PIL against the law and the Delhi High Court ruled in its favour in 2009. Post the December 2013 Supreme Court order reversing this progressive judgement, the NGO filed a review petition and is currently fighting to put an end to this archaic and unconstitutional law.

The organization was established in 1994 with the primary aim of serving various communities by responding to the issue of HIV/AIDS, raising awareness about prevention, providing care and support to children and people with HIV, and removing stigma and discrimination against them. The organization is also focusing on women's empowerment through its 'Goal' programme, a sports-based HIV-prevention initiative. Through Goal, young girls from economically disadvantaged backgrounds are educated about critical life skills such as sexual and reproductive health, gender equality and financial literacy to enable them to make healthy and informed choices.
