React With Emotion.
Act With Intelligence
A collaborative response to covid-19 for the dispossessed and for those at risk.

Today, the most vital factor to contain the panic created by Covid-19 is to empower the ones who assist the day-to-day life of every individual in India, without whom we are rendered powerless and support the frontline workers on all fronts, our heroes in action.

 

Based on expert speak we bring to you an alliance of changemakers. The alliance is a collective CSR fund which came to life working in tandem with corporates, social enterprises, non profits and government agencies to deliver the right support to the right person. Fast.

India Workers' Alliance

Revolving Fund

As a mid to long term response to provide sustainable recovery for the informal sector workers, we have also set up an INR 50 crore returnable grant model that involves a revolving fund mechanism. The returnable grant aims at creating a solution for sustainable recovery for the informal workers by:

  • Providing a returnable grant to bridge income gaps
  • Providing two key benefits:
    a) Impacts more people with the same pool of funds;
    b) increases accountability
  • The grant tenure can be flexible, post which it can be given to other gig workers Or utilized for other social impact goals
