This Fund seeks to meet their strategic aim to enable vulnerable communities living in priority geographical areas to improve their lives.

They have closely knit societies, progressive views and approaches to resource utilisation and sustainability, and are extremely conscious of their relationship with the environment. Their traditional knowledge has relevance to modern ways of living.

Unrestricted Grants for improving Health Equity and reducing Health Disparities among Vulnerable Communities

Among vulnerable communities they include the following as a non exclusive, indicative list of special interest groups that we will work with in both rural and urban areas:

Ultra poor families in mixed communities
Dalit communities, particularly those involved with inhuman occupations
Tribal communities fighting for or dispossessed of their land and resources
Women
Disabled people, particularly children
Communities with little or no access to health services
Communities with little or no access to education
Unorganised labour
Such communities need leadership that is forward-looking, able to generate enthusiasm among the community and able to lead the community towards paths that can help transform their realities. Leadership can emerge in the form of individuals or community organisations. We will fund initiatives that facilitate leadership-influenced change processes either by individuals or community organisations.

NGO initiatives that support development of community leadership and a better understanding of community concerns and their management are also supported.

In addition to these states they also support work in certain culturally identifiable regions in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan which are worse off than other parts in those states:

They will support work which is intended to improve the overall wellbeing of communities, groups and people. The works may be in one or more thematic areas, whether health, education, governance, livelihoods, empowerment, or any other which assists them to deal with the immediate causes of their vulnerability but begins to look at the longer term factors that need to be addressed to help them get out of it.
Works proposed by NGOs for funding should fit in well with the NGO’s own long-term perspective plan. The justification for taking up such work should be clear and it should reflect the concerns of the communities. Communities should have played a core role in developing the ideas with the NGO.
Eligibility Criteria

Organisations supported within the India programme have to be local Indian NGOs with Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) registration.
They do not support non-Indian organisations or locally registered branches of non-Indian organisations. They do not support organisations without FCRA registration.
