Our Work

Sauramandala functions as an accelerator of impact, co-creating solutions with the community and leveraging the strengths of the local culture & context. We strive to build productive relationships in the community and among stakeholders to enable sustainable impact in the most remote and inaccessible places.

 

We do not act as an implementing agency. We believe in collaborating with organisations that have the expertise to build solutions for problems faced by our partner communities. This idea can be seen reflected in our projects.
