Initiatives & Partnerships

A YCombinator for Impact tech.

Twice a year we invest small amounts of money and a lot of our time with 2-3 impactful changemakers working on urgent and important problems faced by the most vulnerable.

Once the NGO partners and problems are identified, We take an ecosystem approach and liaison with Funders, Technologists, IT Vendors, Nonprofits and Corporates to co-create a solution that not only solves the problem for our partner NGO but also allows other NGOs with similar problem to use the solution that has been built. This will in time promote an ecosystem of digital infrastructure for changemakers across the world.

We believe in Funding till Impact.

Our journey starts right from ideation. It continues with support in fundraising, co-designing the solution, managing development of the solution, advice in deployment and training, sustaining financially and troubleshooting to create impact on the ground.

Our Initiatives & Partnerships

Laborline - Helpline for Migrant Labourers

Labourline is a direct response to support the needs of migrant workers and those working in the informal sector in India who were abandoned during the lockdown. It addresses the issues and bridges the gap in providing legal aid and mediation services for the problems faced by workers at the worksite. The Working People’s Charter and Aajeevika Bureau with funding from the Azim Premji Foundation launched the Platform that has been operational since July, 2021 and headquartered in Mumbai. In the first 2 months, the helpline has already received 2497 calls and provided mediation to 500+ workers in distress from states like Delhi, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab, Jammu Kashmir, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Kerala, Telangana and Tamil Nadu.

Learning infrastructure for the most vulnerable [Coming soon]

When people like us want to learn something, we hop on to unacademy, Edx, Coursera, IGNOU and within a few days, sometimes, even hours, we have acquired a new skill. The same holds true for school-aged kids. They havekhan academy videos, byjus, etc. But, What about the millions of migrant laborers, domestic workers, small and marginal farmers who are a part of the same society? Who is thinking about how they learn? What would a learning ladder and platform for them look like? We are building just that by partnering with SEWA with support from the Mozilla Tech & Society Fellowship
