Children In Need Institute (CINI)

Child in Need Institute (CINI) is an Indian NGO working within deprived communities.  For the past 42 years CINI’s overarching aim has been to enable poor people, specifically women and children, to take control of their lives and share in sustainable development.

We are active both in villages and low-income urban settlements, and seek to break the vicious cycles of poverty relating to malnutrition, ill-health, illiteracy, abuse and violence. Our projects focus on education, health, protection and nutrition and we work within communities to advocate, signpost and whistle blow for India’s most vulnerable people.

CINI’s Mission: “Sustainable development in health, nutrition, education and protection of child, adolescent and woman in need”.
