About Us

We are a group of development professionals from diverse regional and professional backgrounds who chose to work in the social sector, as they identified a diverse set of problems that exist all around us. We came together thanks to the platform of Indian School of Development Management and our passion to work for societal change connected us. We all come from or have worked in remote regions of India where, through our interaction with stakeholders and lived experience, have identified problems which we aim to address by working together with a shared vision.
