Can we really deem it as Nepotism if the individual uses their assets for charitable purposes and engages in philanthropy? Navya Naveli Nanda, the great Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter and Shweta Bachchan-Nanda’s daughter, has been influential in the nonprofit sector for quite some time now, concentrating primarily on issues concerning women’s health and development. She has been effective on her social media pages, posting updates about COVID-19 and assisting people in obtaining validated assistance.
Let’s take a peek at Navya’s charitable endeavors.
Navya launched Project Naveli previously this year, which provides facilities and support for women to achieve socio-economic empowerment. It serves a wide variety of fields, including education, economic freedom, domestic abuse, mental and physical wellbeing, and helps to empower women so that they can experience healthy lifestyles.
Since graduating, Navya has also been affiliated with Aara Health, an online portal for women’s health. She has previously spoken out for women’s wellbeing in a conversation about gender discrimination. She put forth her views and said, “Women inherently prioritize the health and well-being of their family over themselves.” “…they are always taking care of the family, the husband and the children. I don’t think their own health, mental or physical, is a priority,” she added.
She was recently recognized for her outspoken activism about women’s rights and equality.
She took to Instagram to share her appreciation for being highlighted by UN Women, the United Nations entity for women’s liberation and equal rights. She shared a picture of herself being featured along with a placard, which read the following hashtags: #EndThePatriarchy, #EndPeriodPoverty and #EndGenderInequality. Navya also shared a hard-hitting message along with the same.
She explained that although being recognized by UN Women is an honor as it ensures that her concerns and actions are being acknowledged, the current contagion crisis makes her sad since it has unfairly impacted women. Navya emphasized that this renders gender parity a distant possibility and discussed how the second wave of COVID-19 has disproportionately affected women.

Navya also listed several organisations like Pink Legal, Care India and SEWA Bharat, that people might support in order to assist such women. She noted that anybody who chooses to embrace her organization by volunteering on any of these initiatives to aid in COVID-19 relief should contact her. Navya added that if someone is at home and feels helpless, they can reach out, volunteer, and help her cope with the aftermath of this second wave.
She ended the post by saying that it gives her great pride to have served her country on such a global stage, but that her struggle is far from over. She encouraged her followers to take action immediately, as the second wave of COVID-19 threatens to destroy lives and livelihoods.
