We recognize the barriers restricting the access and visibility of NGOs serving vulnerable communities due to historic marginalization and complex geographies. In order to reduce the systemic inequality faced by NGOs, our approach is guided by a Gender, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (GEDI) and intersectionality centered methodology.
Rebuild India Fund identifies organizations through a unique sourcing and selection approach, which prioritizes organizations with leaders who are proximate to or from vulnerable communities and chronically poor communities facing historic exclusion, organizations that involve the community in program design, and organizations serving communities at the intersection of multiple vulnerabilities.
Organizations are recommended by existing partners and networks focusing on grassroots civil society in India.
Final selection is facilitated by an independent Investment Committee comprising diverse NGO leaders including existing portfolio grantee leaders.
