We are Samhita
Business responsibility and brand purpose in a better normal.
The better normal re-imagines business environments where social value is an integral aspect of growth, putting stakeholders and environmental guardianship at the centre of business strategy, a strategy that evolves from inputs to outcomes, from individual to ecosystem, and from delivering services to building capacity and enabling the market.
To achieve this, we are guiding companies in evolving from compliance-driven CSR to strategic and catalytic CSR that incorporates scale, sustainability and a stakeholder focus into business strategies. We enable companies to align their core competencies with the needs of the social sector, build catalytic partnerships with stakeholders with in-depth knowledge of social issues, ﬁrst-hand experience and the networks to execute substantive impact initiatives and by utilising catalytic ﬁnance tools to promote a longer-term, outcome-oriented approach for initiatives.
This approach bridges the gap between purpose and action, creating strategies that balance people, proﬁt and planet, helping you elevate your business responsibility, and creating a better normal for the communities and environments that interact with your business.
To alleviate the livelihood crisis and support economic recovery post-COVID-19, the REVIVE platform, set up by Samhita and funded by international donors like USAID, Dell Foundation and Omidyar network; aims to provide access to timely and affordable capital and technical assistance (e.g., skilling) through returnable grants (RG) and other ﬁnancial instruments to disadvantaged men and women whose livelihood and income has been adversely affected in this pandemic. The platform is guided by the theoretically founded premise that access to affordable capital is vital to engage in productive economic activity. This in turns increases overall well-being of recipients and their households, by improving livelihoods and reducing mental stress caused by income precarity.
