Although the development community in India has a vast trove of expertise and wisdom on advancing social change, that knowledge often resides in silos, either locked in people’s heads or buried within organisations.
This limited access to learning, insights, evidence and best practices constrains what we can achieve–both individually with our programmes and money, and also collectively as a sector seeking to create impact.
We founded IDR as a nonprofit in 2017, with the objective of surfacing these ideas, experiences and practices, so that together we can do more and do right by the millions of Indians whom we work with and for.
We promise to highlight voices on issues that matter, regardless of whether they belong to little-known grassroots organisations or big-name funders. We will write about what has worked but we will also talk to our failures. We will showcase the big ideas even as we cover the functional knowledge that helps us improve our programmes and organisations.
As a platform for Indian voices, we are committed to reflecting the diversity, complexity, and inventiveness of the sector. We want IDR to be as much yours as it is ours.
