In Maharashtra, a number of non-profits have been working relentlessly over years towards betterment of the society. But, severity of challenges in fundamental fields as Agricuture, Water, Healthcare, Education, Livelihood is so high that frustration looms even around some successfully run organizations at times. Hence, it may become difficult for highly motivated newcomers to carry out their work in sustainably & effectively. Active participation of the volunteers as well as a larger cross section of the society thus becomes essential to keep it going.
If Anandwan’s experience of 67 years in development sector is taken into account, every start-up in this sector has to go through varied challenges; more in the initial stages. Sometimes, in absence active participation and support from society, these challenges may kill the motivation of the founder. Under Anandwan Samajbhan Abhiyan, Anandwan’s endeavour is to empower such start-ups in development sector so that the needs of disadvantaged community can be catered, both qualitatively and quantitatively.
