Our philosophy

We are dedicated to helping “stranded India” – the bottom 100,000 underdeveloped villages in India – get equal opportunities to break free from the cycle of poverty. We are guided by aspirations that come directly from the community to achieve tangible improvement and enduring dignity. We call this approach “Thoughtful Tarakki.” Our team of practitioners, strategists and specialists are committed to development design solutions that are both locally relevant and scalable.

“My passion for climate action brought me to TRI. It's only after coming here, I realized the potential of working with the government and that it is key to system change. Also piloting the models on-the-ground in TRIs Community Action Labs and presenting the evidence to government bodies enhances the scope of replication. My effort to transform society becomes a lot easier here.”
