A fertile space
for innovation.

There is a lack of innovation in certain areas of development due to perceived risk and, sometimes, even neglect. These are the very reasons to invest and support such areas. The time is ripe to look at problems from unusual angles and introduce new ways of thinking. Communities can thrive by harnessing technology to amplify reach, strengthen efforts and build the capacity for change. It’s vital to make long-term bets on work at the intersection of urgent need, contextual solutions and lasting change. Now is the time to nurture ground-breaking work, turning ideas into reality for the greater good. All grants before March 31, 2022, were made by Rohini Nilekani in her personal capacity. 

“Today India has problems that call for innovative philanthropy to take bigger risks - risks of collaboration, audacious goals, and giving more. That’s what will make this country go forward.”
