A story of relentless commitment to empowering communities to improve their quality of life.
A highly driven team working together to create purposeful change.
Our work spans across health, education, violence against women and community institution building.
We believe systematic and scientific research is integral to creating change.
Our new ideas and approaches continue to transform lives.
From big ideas to little gestures, there are endless ways to get involved.
Give as little or as much as you like to support us.
Come, be part of creating change that matters.
We engage with marginalised communities to understand their needs and aspirations, mobilise and strengthen their Leadership, and facilitate creation of community institutions.
We believe that mobilised communities can question discrimination, and act to overcome it. We see institution building, based on responsible governance principles, as a way to realise this change. Our work has facilitated the creation of community-based organisations of female sex workers and sexual minorities, strengthened Village Health, Sanitation and Nutrition Committees (VHSNC) and formation of sex worker cooperatives.
We design interventions that effectively balance community needs and programme objectives as evidenced in some of our chosen methodologies of service delivery such as D-TEAMS, public-private partnership and ASHA Diary.
We collaborate with government, private institutions, community organisations and academia to implement programmes, conduct research, and further knowledge sharing and uptake through Learning platforms led by us.
We provide technical support to state and national governments to inform policies and practice. We assist governments of other countries to conduct epidemic appraisals, design programmes and formulate policies.
