Saath Livelihoods proposes to create a Rs.100 crore endowment fund over a five year period. The fund will be created through donations, grants from individuals/HNIs and corporates as well as from CSR allocations. The Fund is to enable philanthropic organizations, companies and high-net-worth individuals to use resources to finance incubation of social enterprises in an integrated manner and also monitor their social impact.

Our activities include:

  • Identification of potential entrepreneurs/ enterprises from databases/ lists of Ashoka Fellows, start-up social enterprises, and from other NGO programs and ongoing Saath Livelihoods programs after due diligence.
  • To conduct interactive sessions for project detailing where required and training modules for key persons of partner organisations to evolve/ refine the CSR strategies and enable involvement/ volunteering stakeholder/ community engagement and documentation.
