About Us


The market for agriculture, food and health is $3 trillion. There are one billion smallholders producers and vulnerable individuals who depend on this market for their livelihoods and health, but are not favourably impacted. They are not the ‘bottom of the pyramid’ groups but are people with restricted ability to reap benefits that the market presents. We are bravely trying to set things right for these groups, in partnership with them.

Our efforts at achieving impact are complemented through engagements with the government, the private sector and other organizations that are also interested in affecting this shift.

The breadth of our experience is illustrated by the diversity of problems and subjects that we have been working on such as health, livelihoods, education, governance, gender and violence against women, disaster risk reduction, social protection, financial inclusion, biodiversity and climate change, social norm, etc.

In everything, and at every turn people, environment and systems are central, and all our efforts are geared towards positive impact across these. The foundation is employee owned with Trustees elected by employees.

Our Philosophy

We recognize that social enterprises, responsible businesses, impact investments, smart subsidies, sustainable solutions are key to development. We also recognize that the DNA of any sustainable change and transformation integrates four key ecosystem elements – Capacities of the Community, Efficiency of the Market (Business Relations), Reach of the Facilitators (Closeness, customization) and Power of the State (Policy, Entitlements).

Our Approach

We seek to achieve sustainable development through cross thematic engagements, different organisational structures and revenue models. Our diverse thematic coverage includes health, livelihoods, education, WASH, social protection, financial security and inclusion, gender, disaster risk reduction. Grant based models to derive proof of concept and move to scale. Fee based models to provide evidence and insights to help other organisations reach scale.
