Welcome to OPNP+ Community Based Organization
We work for the survival and improving the lifestyle of PLHIV. The organisation was established in 2007. Sahil, a 25-year old from Darbhanga in Bihar has no rancour or bitterness as he talks about getting infected through blood transfusion.
Carving out a new identity for himself in a new city, he found the motivation to live and be of use to others, like him. He has experienced stigma and discrimination but is hopeful that with the support of media, communities will understand the infection better and accept positive people, in their fold. Also he is convinced that we all need to talk more about HIV. For, only when you see HIV, will normalization happen.
With support from the NGOs, he learnt to help and care for others who were struggling and suffering like him. Thereafter my life changed and HIV/AIDS and work for the basic rights of children, women, girls and poeple form the marginalized communities.
Thus, OPNP+ organization was registered under Societies Act of XXI, 1860 in 2007 since then, the network is tirelessly and selflessly working for the welfare of the people suffering from HIV/AIDS, raising awareness about Tuberculosis, Hepatitis-B & C, empowering women, girls, poeple with physical/mental disabilities and for the rights of people from slums and marginalized communities.

We providing free education classes to children, computer and other skills based training courses to empower needy women and youth, campaign to save the girl child and educate/support girls through various government and non-govenment welfare schemes. Educate and empower women from slums marginalized communities by forming Self Help Groups so that they become self-reliant.
