Social Entrepreneurs are an important part of Vibha’s solution strategy. They are the change agents whose ideas are the basis of all our initiatives.
They are people who have studied the problems and worked out solutions that can effect change right from the grassroots. They might not have the resources or funds to realize their ideas but they strongly believe they can bring about a positive social change.
We welcome these ideas and enable the entrepreneurs with knowledge, expertise, capital, financial know-how, management support and other required assistance.
If you have a proposal that you believe has an answer to our problems, we would like to review it.

In the Shahpur Block located in Satpuras in Betul district of Madhya Pradesh. Eklavya will be implementing their dual methodology of community level intervention through Shiksha Protsahan Kendras (SPK) coupled with intervention at the Government school, involving the teachers and the state education department functionaries as direct stake-holders in the project. The effectiveness of the project would be measured based on three broad parameters which are accessibility, quality of education and improvement in learning levels of children in the age group of 6-10.
Five municipal schools. Through active participation of the existing government school teachers, two hours every day within the school is given to Samavesh to implement Activity Based Learning (ABL) program. Multi-Grade-Multi-Level(MGML) education kits, developed by Samavesh will be introduced in the schools and the teachers will trained so that the learning levels of the children can be significantly improved.
A project of Jagriti Bal Vikas Samiti, started by the faculty and students of IIT Kanpur. The goal of the project is to ensure that these children do not get absorbed as child labor. As the families migrate to their native villages during off-peak months, a process for continuing supplementary education to the children in their own villages in Jharkand, Bihar and Eastern UP will be initiated. Mid day meal/nutritional supplement, and primary healthcare to the children will also be provided. Apna Skool will study, learn and implement the model of Door Step School (DSS), one of Vibha’s successful models in Pune, and start involving the builders and the Government as stakeholders in the execution and scaling up the project.
Will also work in implementing the DSS model and bring early education centers for the children of construction workers, thus minimizing the scope of these children entering the society as child laborers. Five large scale construction sites have been identified and these centers will be started to support approximately 250 children and providing them with 4 hours of informal education with nutrition support. Taking the DSS model as an example, Saath has already made the Builders as stakeholders in the success of this project and 50% of the nutritional costs and the space for these centers is provided by them.
