About NGO:

The parks provide a joyful, serene and secure atmosphere for the elderly much like a home away from home. The Parks celebrate numerous festivals all around the year in the endeavour of enriching the lives of the elderly. The foundation consiously focuses on the vital requisites of the elderly viz social interaction, social security, balanced health and wellbeing. Our vision is to work towards being recognised as a public policy think tank that works towards policy advocacy on various issues relating to the elders in the society.

Fund Usage:

The NANA NANI FOUNDATION foundation strives to conceptualize and develop Nana Nani Parks pan India with 27 parks in Mumbai alone. We want to include soft walking tracks, toilet and tactile areas for physically and visually challanged, solar powered lighting and rain water harvesting to conserve electricity and reduce dependency on muncipal water, setting up skills training at the parks. Future vision also encampases creating day care centres, self help schemes with synergy from state or central government schemes and assisted living residential projects.

Impact:

The funds raised during SCMM 2012 were used to build the seats and the fencing of our park at Chowpatty, Mumbai. This helped the elderly to enjoy their time in the park.
