Rural Healthcare awareness,
( Founder & Managing Director )
Naya Savera NGO was established by Mr Pradeep Sati in 2018. It was formally registered in 2019. He is the Deputy General Manager of the transport department, Government of Uttarakhand. One of the most kind-hearted people, he always worked for the welfare of society within his capacity. He acquired necessary and relevant information with the help of the RTI act and took part in awareness campaigns.
His father suffered from lung damage and was on oxygen support for a long time. The family considered lung transplant as a part of the treatment, but they faced difficulties due to the lack of donors and infrastructure. This situation compelled Mr Pradeep to initiate a movement for the promotion of organ donation in India. He embarked on his mission as a one-man-army but soon realised that a bigger team of volunteers would be more efficient and impactful. Thus, he established the Naya Savera NGO, which quite literally helps people in finding new beginnings. His lovely wife, an advocate, was very supportive of his endeavour and is also the secretary of the organisation.
Mr Pradeep has faced several challenges in his journey from lack of willingness of people to lack of financial resources. However, none of these hurdles was strong enough to shake his will power. Today, he continues his mission of bringing about change in society in the smallest ways possible and making the world a better place.
naya savera translates into ‘new day.’ the organisation believes that every new day brings with itself the opportunities to improve, grow and change for the better. with this vision, mr pradeep sati founded the ngo in 2018. the organisation has five primary aims which include overall public welfare, legal awareness and provision of legal aid, healthcare, road safety and childcare.
currently, the ngo has two major ongoing projects regarding organ donation and water purity.
organ donation is a relatively new concept in some parts of india. the various myths surrounding the subject lead to ignorance and lack of willingness on the part of the general public. the team of naya savera aims to burst these myths and initiate a conversation among people.
the ngo has been registered with notto, a nodal government agency for organ donation. it educates the people on the need for organ donation and provides them with assistance regarding the legal formalities and registration process. they organise small camps in localities to spread awareness among the residents and simplify the concept for their understanding. they tell people about how their small effort can potentially save lives and give others another chance. till date, the naya savera team has successfully registered more than 100 people for organ donation. in their journey, they came across the fact that senior citizens were the most empathetic and enthusiastic participants and were ready to contribute in every small manner towards their cause.
the other major project is about water purity and water shortage. studies by experts have shown that ro water purifiers, which can be found in many indian households today, lead to a loss of necessary minerals. they also cause degradation in underground water levels. the ngo conducts awareness campaigns to educate people about these effects. they tell people about the specific locations that need ro purifiers based on the recommendations of organisations such as who. they have also submitted a request with the supreme court to regulate the usage of these purifiers.
within a short period, the ngo has achieved many milestones and has impacted several lives. despite hindrances and roadblocks, they continue to work for lesser-known causes and bring changes in society one step at a time.
