Mission

To give a voice to grassroots NGOs and inspire individuals and businesses to join efforts in creating a better India

Most Meaningful Change

iPartner inspires trust as a credible and true partner of smaller community-led foundations and local organizations. We have supported risky ideas, taking them from an initial concept to a pilot stage and then scaling-up. In this manner we’ve invested in innovations that matter the most to local people. We work with a network of partners who in turn become our supporters and friends. It is a truly equal relationship we share on the ground!
