VISION

To become a centre of excellence for creation, documentation and dissemination of knowledge

Various models are being developed and deployed in India and in other countries to address issues faced by rural people. A great deal of work has been done in areas such as health, women and child care, education and adult literacy, livelihoods, agriculture, women empowerment, housing, environment and sanitation, etc. We believe that identifying best practices in India and other parts of the world in all areas concerning rural transformation, process testing and validating them in the field and disseminating such knowledge is the key to sustained rural transformation.
