Dasra recognizes an urgent need for inspired and uncompromising competence to touch and transform the lives of 800 million Indians. Through knowledge creation, capacity building, collaboration and fundraising, we nurture powerful partnerships with funders and social enterprises. Since 1999, Dasra has engaged with over 3,000 corporates, foundations and philanthropists, influenced INR 280 crore towards the social sector and improved the life chances of over 10 million people.
Achieving Good Governance is the most effective way to address issues of poverty, malnutrition, poor education and limited healthcare. However, between 1996 and 2012, India’s standing declined on five of the six Worldwide Governance Indicators (WGIs) developed by the World Bank. In the below reports, Dasra uses these indicators to evaluate India’s governance status, and provide solutions that can be led by all stakeholder groups—philanthropists, the private sector, private citizens or non-profits.
