We are empowering a nation of changemakers!
Problems faced by rural India are multi-dimensional and highly contextual. Solutions must come from a fundamental understanding of local dynamics and constraints. Locals know best, but even locals need help sometimes.
Join us and invest in changemaker innovation projects to create a world in which 1.3 billion people - 1/6th of the world’s population - are empowered to solve the issues in their communities.
We identify, train, support, and connect overlooked local changemakers in rural India to ignite local solutions for shared visions.
We identify local Changemakers as action-oriented visionaries. We use an evaluation toolkit, developed internally, to ensure high commitment levels along with a passion for social change.
SEEKHO provides the changmakers with a support structure in the form of mentoring, a physical space for collaboration, as well as peer-learning.
Each changemaker is trained in the SEEKHO method of Asset Based Community Development, Positive Psychology, and Design Thinking.
Throughout this non-linear process, the changemaker and their communities are connected to SEEKHO's ecosystem of partner organizations.
Who is a Changemaker?
When Razia heard about SEEKHO, she enthusiastically told her parents that she wanted to join. They told her women are meant to do housework and shat she should instead get married soon. Her response was to stage a three day hunger strike in order to convince her parents to allow her to join, which they eventually did.
Since then, she has founded a women's group, worked with women and children in an untouchable, red light district area where few are willing to go, and is working to bring educational and vocational opportunities to this area to prevent others from joining the industry.
Let us identify these gifted changemakers and help them find their wings!
