In response to the need for a coordinated international effort on development and knowledge-sharing, Real India (NGO) has planning to establish an extensive network with its Research for Development partners. The networks will be facilitated through the Fund’s Development programmes, which supports international, regional and sub regional institutions and centres of excellence on thematic issues, technology development, piloting of innovative pro-poor activities of operational relevance to the new interventions and projects.
Real India seeks partners including the donor partners who would be like-minded, pro-people and who believe in potentiality, skill and experience of people. They would work in network for empowerment and holistic development of the poor people.
