The richest 1 per cent in India cornered 73 per cent of the wealth generated in the country where as 67 crore Indians comprising the population’s poorest half saw their wealth rise by just 1 per cent, Our country has huge economical gap between every class. The life of an underprivileged class in India is unfathomably miserable.

welcome

India accounts for both the highest and a staggering number of multi-dimensionally poor people. Now imagine a world with estimated 1.9 million population in India ,who apart from being under privileged and economically deprived, their core of a being goes unrecognized – within the family, if and when HE/SHE/? step into school, when HE/SHE seek employment, or when HE/SHE/? need social services such as health and housing. Additionally, because of their outward appearance, HE/SHE/? may be subject to discrimination, violence, or the fear of it. YES, such gross and inhumane conditions are daily and permanent for the socially secluded community we normal people call as TRANSGENDERS. Trans people experience these realities every day of their lives. Yet, like all other human beings, trans people have fundamental rights – to life, liberty, equality, health, privacy, speech, and expression , but constantly face denial of these fundamental rights because of the rejection of the trans person's right to their gender identity. Despite being such a large population; not a single welfare scheme on national level specifically targeting their basic needs. In these circumstances, there can be no attainment of the goal of universal equitable development as set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is need of the hour to make sure the agenda reach out to the most downtrodden sections of our community, to the most deprived and those furthest behind and ensure the resources are implemented.
