View Report

There have been a number of great initiatives across the country that have been working on some of our biggest issues, whether it’s education, poverty, health or sanitation but a very few of them have been able to do so at scale.

In a country like India, we need a mix of models that work at scale as well as a variety of smaller city- and community-level models that are addressing real needs and issues.

Additionally, while there are funders, investors, even individual donors, who want to support interesting initiatives, they have criteria, like organisational size, legal requirements, or the ability to handle a large sum of money. And they look for proof that a product or service works, which makes them less willing to support innovative, but unproven ideas and models.
