Social Enterprise

Self reliance and self support!!

NE is a self-funded group. All its areas of work including production, R&D, Educational programmes, Sales & promotion, administration and organization are totally self sustained. The finance needed for carrying out these functions are self-generated. Our core objective and effort to be a self-reliant group helps us not to depend on external funding, explore possibilities with our strengths without compromising on our basic objectives and values.

Social Enterprise!!

Building an enterprise for the cause NE stands, enables us to undertake various tasks to fulfill NN’s mission, with out making compromise and without dependency on external support but building on our strength.

In fact NN came into existence with a science popularization campaign on the 1995 ‘Total Solar Eclipse’ where we produced low cost solar filters. The group produced around 5 lakh filters within a period 3 months and distributed these across the nation. This was a seminal achievement, which lead to further work.


Our producers co-operative provides viable job opportunities to needy women from slums. Unemployed youth are also involved in various productions & dissemination activities.

The NN team visits schools organises and holds exhibitions, runs a distribution outlet “discover it” from which are distributed learning tools and toys.

Income generation for needy woman!!

Employment opportunities for needy women and unemployed youth from under privileged sections: Our production methods deliberately employ labour intensive, employment generating techniques.

The production function is set up in a co-operative mode of functioning. The members procure, produce, store, keep records of their work and manage the set up. This enables them to plan, organize, and execute most of their activities, on their own.

Income generation for needy women through producers cooperatives.

The jodo kit, total maths kit, solar filters and other materials produced by NN are made by a women’s cooperative conducted by NN. This cooperative provides viable and sustainable livelihood for needy women

Employment Generation: This enables us to provide viable and sustainable employment to needy women from underprivileged backgrounds. The production process is simplified yet efficient and precise, and does not require huge investments. This ensures supply as per demand and volume production can be easily achieved.
