Why should a corporate partner with organization?

Thirty years back, when Saath started its work in slums, the children, youth and women living there were highly vulnerable in terms of their social, economic and health situation. With the strong belief that people should not be at a disadvantage because of lack of support and opportunities, Saath started working with youth, pre-school children, school dropouts, and health sector. They also ensured that the slum dwellers had reliable access to subsidies and social benefits that they were eligible to get.


From its origins, Saath’s approach to development work focused on building partnerships with communities and service providers in local government to support communities in accessing to city/ local level service providers and services.  

During these 30 years, while Saath’s focus on communities and their living environment has remained unchanged, it has moved from area-focused implementation of interventions to skills training, support for livelihoods, undertaking research, facilitating the purchase of first-time homes by slum dwellers and working with construction labour and their children. Saath believes in long term partnership, and has pioneered various projects and ensures complete transparency.
