IndiaNext Program

We have partnered with Points for People to launch the PfP-IndiaNext Program.
An initiative that connects donors directly with the implementation side of things.

The contours of the Program are:

Principles

People: It is about them, not us. We will ask and agree, not direct. We will focus on customization and contextualization.

Replication: We will collaborate, not compete. Direct implementation will be a secondary option.

Perspective: We will strive to steer investments towards issues that others are not working on or are unable to work on or simply do not see as being issues.

Size and scale: Nothing is too small. Investments will be done through pooled funds.

Funds

We shall pool contributions into distinct yet intertwined funds. These funds allow us to broadly define the direction of our investments and also allow you as our donor partner to convey your priorities at any given point in time. We shall work through the following funds:

Relief Fund: We will pool and direct financial resources towards responding to any event that suddenly disrupts the lives of people. This would include epidemics and pandemics, conflict and natural calamities.

Reshaping Futures Fund: We will support work in all sectors of the Indian economy. Examples would include Education, Livelihood & Entrepreneurship, Health & Nutrition, Water, Hygiene & Sanitation, Digital and Technology, Agriculture & Livestock.

Quest Fund: We will support initiatives that push the boundaries of what is possible. We will invest in new ways of doing things. This fund will help us in reshaping our futures.

Approach

Partners: We will identify and enlist implementing partners. These partners will typically have a verifiable track record manifest through regulatory registrations and shall ideally hold independent certification from agencies like Guidestar, Credibility Alliance and similar.

Design: It matters. We will work with our partners to design relevant and appropriate interventions.

Governance & Management: Our team brings more than 50 years of collective experience of working with and within the social sector. Our team shall be at hand to provide guidance and capacity building support to our partners.

Accountability: Our credibility lies in recognizing our accountability. To you, to our partners and most importantly to the individuals and communities we serve. We assure you that we will make every effort to ensure transparency through our value chain and report back regularly on progress.

Let us begin.
Let us stand together.
Let us reshape our future.
