We work with NGOs across a spectrum of issues, to improve the quality of life for marginalised people across our country. Because of challenges that are constantly emerging in our society, we also conceptualise and implement our own programmes.
We identify programmes based on three core issues:
While progress has been made in improving educational facilities across India, at the grassroots level there are many stumbling blocks that range from inadequate infrastructure, low teacher-pupil ratio and migration of families, amongst others.
We support NGOs working directly at the grassroots level with the economically and socially disadvantaged to make education accessible (covering rural, tribal, urban and semi urban areas) and relevant (often tailor-made to suit the needs and requirements of the community) to as many as possible.
We believe that socio-economic development and health are so closely intertwined that it is impossible to achieve one without the other. We extend support to programmes that are working in the areas of preventive, remedial and rehabilitative health care.
Community development is a process whereby community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems. It adopts a grassroot or a bottom up approach to finding viable solutions by the community for the various issues plaguing it. Participation of the community as a whole has to be an integral part for the programme to be sustainable.
