Approach :

Progress and development of villages is possible only when families realise and accept the value (intangible & tangible) of coming together as a community for fulfilling their basic common needs. It is important that they recognise that their economic unsustainability may have external influence but the core of the solution lies in their aggregation.

Drishtee is relying on the willingness of rural families to commit, invest, and contribute towards this common cause of unification and working towards their own empowerment.

When the village embarks on the path of organising themselves, the focus is on identifying their core needs, existing skill set and resource requirements. These would be broadly – capacity needs (training & development, design, management , planning & structuring ) , capital needs (human capital, financial ) and channel needs ( marketing , networking , linkages )  for accessing global markets.

Drishtee analyses these needs and connects with relevant stakeholders such as local government, civil society organisations and CSR of large corporations seeking partnership support on behalf of the community organisations.

Sectors Addressed :

Agriculture and allied services



Beauty and Wellness

Banking and Finance

Tourism and Hospitality
