Concern India Foundation was set up in 1991 as a registered non-profit, public charitable trust to extend financial and non-financial support to grassroots level NGOs working in the areas of education, health and community development.
Our approach is to ‘help people help themselves’ by making the disadvantaged self-reliant and enabling them to lead a life of dignity. This philosophy lays the foundation for our programmes so that they have the buy-in of the entire community and are hence sustainable and effective.
We work with and through grassroot organisations that have passion and purpose, but are strapped for funds. We will help such organisations with not just funding but also capacity building, systems and planning, so that they are able to continue their work even after the duration of our financial support. Over the past 25+ years we have strengthened and supported over 1,000 NGO partners across the country through our offices in Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Pune.
Our all-embracing approach ensures that through the programmes we support, we reach out to diverse target groups that include children, women, men, the elderly, the disabled, and rural communities from the marginalised sections of society. Our strengths in institution building, management support, monitoring and evaluation make our projects scalable and sustainable.
