Our Story

Karnav Shah is a founder of JivanamAsteya NGO. Karnav Shah has grown through what he has gone through. He worked with Baptcare.org (Healthcare) Australian based-NGO where he was given a task of aged carer and later promoted to Team Leader. There he was exposed to the care management of end of life and palliative care of aged people. Despite he was selected in on of the world’s top 50 universities in Australia, he drops out from the university and changed his career towards the legal social work due to life changing experience with Baptcare.org.

Returning to India, he realized that the issues he learned about in Australia are different to the present issues Indian is facing. India is the fastest developing economy and quality of the life of people has been improved however people living at the bottom of the pyramid are still underprivileged and often abused.

Access to an adequate healthcare facility and legal aid is expensive and justice became the vague words. The government has introduced a number of reforms however the grassroots government employee and community need to be influenced by positive training and support. Children are also vulnerable from domestic violence, parent’s custodial battle, and sex trafficking. India is a young nation, however, this generation requires resources, training, and support to push up their start-ups which eventually create employment and boost economic growth, meanwhile social innovation and social entrepreneurship is an essential element of ever growing entrepreneur generation.

Indian family and culture are most important heritage that we have received to live happily and appropriate security, obviously some reforms are required in the traditional family system, however, breaking family values is a great loss which can be seen and analyzed in recent abuse of women related laws or increased divorce ratio.

Education, training, street school education, skill development, social justice, and empowerment is also important areas to work. Most of the NGO works for mass people, however, neglect individual solution. However, at JivanamAsteya Organization, we focus on individual problems and the problem of communities and public at large.

Overall, While India is developing, it has its own social, economic and national challenged which need to be addressed and resolved. At JivanamAsteya Organization, we take up this challenge and encourage people of India to join us in this noble movement of change for happiness, peace, respect, and prosperity.
