AVPN is building the ecosystem for philanthropists and social investors with a dedicated team in India
Over the past decade, wealth in India has grown dramatically and with it comes a new breed of philanthropists and social investors. This emerging group is looking to tackle many of the economic inequalities still challenging the country through business-minded approaches.
From companies looking to improve their CSR practice to high net worth individuals looking to maximise their impact, the AVPN platform provides frameworks, connections and tools to empower this approach and create real and lasting change for India.
At the inaugural AVPN India Summit 2017, AVPN launched the Funding Education with Impact report. It examines gaps, interventions and the funding landscape across different education segments and age groups in India. Running the spectrum from Early Childhood Education (ECE) through to vocational education and also covering inclusive education, it identifies gaps and showcases existing interventions as well as provides recommendations and suggested approaches to existing and prospective funders.
