We have not climbed these mountains on our own. We have been helped, supported and aided in all our endeavours by national foundations, government bodies and international organisations, who have provided us with funding and specialised inputs and partnered us in implementing our projects.

There have been many like-minded people and institutions as well who have also walked this path with us and helped us with their support.

We along with the last-mile communities are

indebted to all of them.

Individual donors

There have been several individual donors who have supported us with funds and with material inputs, volunteered on our projects, promoted our work, and motivated us and aided us with their suggestions.

Our projects are delivered in partnership with many other organizations of specialized competence and/or a key development role, and aims and goals that converge with ours. We partner international organizations located in the developed world for the purpose of resource mobilization and research and technology development. In the developing countries we work in, we collaborate with local civil society organizations for the purpose of advocacy and for influencing local policies and programming. We partner with grassroots organizations for enhancing our reach, and with specialized organizations and research and training bodies, for accessing their knowledge and services for an improved delivery of our projects.

We are strongly aligned with national development plans and programs in our work, and often work in tandem with government departments at the district and state level, and ministries and State technical bodies at the national level. We engage with and provide our inputs to policymaking bodies of the government in the countries we work in, on a regular basis.
