Rural India needs a new approach to development that is sustainable and scalable.
Our philosophy is centered around creating development design solutions that are both locally relevant and scalable. We are guided by aspirations that come directly from the community to achieve tangible improvement and enduring dignity. We call this approach “Thoughtful Tarakki.”
“Thoughtful Tarakki” is a transformative design solution with the purpose of fostering thriving, resilient and sustainable communities.
This tri-focal model is based on engaging the whole-of-society: the state, the market and communities. In practice it is a multi-disciplinary approach that addresses the critical dimensions of life: Health & Nutrition, Primary Education, Income Prosperity, Water & Sanitation, Local Governance and Gender Equality.
We are a team of practitioners, strategists and specialists committed to transforming rural India.
Embedded within multi-sector government departments, our team collaborates with policymakers to plan and design rural development initiatives, while our practitioners operate at the grassroots level, piloting these ideas in blocks and districts.
