Programmes

The Foundation lays emphasis on Social, Digital and Financial Inclusion; strengthening of delivery systems and ensuring a transparent, participatory democracy for bringing about a systemic change.

Its founder members have during the past ten years travelled extensively across the country to study, document and promote social, digital and financial inclusion. In the process, knowledge repositories have been created on what works — the best practices — actively engaging all stakeholders from policymakers and civil society to ordinary citizens.

Samavesh

SKOCH Development Foundation’s Samavesh is a programme aimed at alleviating poverty through a dovetail of financial literacy and financial inclusion. Samavesh is based on one and a half decade of SKOCH Group’s own ground research in the hinterlands of the country. These insights empowered the group to propagate its own model of inclusive growth in 2007 which is aimed at targeting poverty at the grassroots level.

Shakti

SKOCH Shakti was initiated with an aim of empowering women financially, socially and digitally. Women account for about half or more of the entire informal sector’s workforce and given access to credit and market linkages, even marginalized women can form and benefit from such enterprises. SKOCH Shakti aims for holistic empowerment of women.
