Introducing Dasra from India: A new partner organisation of SuSanA

We would like to welcome Dasra from India as a new SuSanA partner organisation!

The following text is taken from their application form and which was written by the partner organisation itself.

Description and Activities in Sustainable Sanitation
Dasra recognizes an urgent need for inspired and uncompromising competence to touch and transform the lives of 800 million Indians. Through knowledge creation, capacity building, collaboration and fundraising, we nurture powerful partnerships with funders and social enterprises to bring social change. Since 1999, Dasra has engaged with over 3,000 corporates, foundations and philanthropists and improved the life chances of over 10 million people. One of Dasra's major areas of focus is sanitation and we're creating partnerships to build a sustainable sanitation ecosystem in India.

Re: Introducing Dasra from India: A new partner organisation of SuSanA

Dear Dasra staff,

Great to have you as a SuSanA partner. Yesterday, I attended a webinar by the Gates Foundation where they spoke about their sanitation activities and grants in India. Your organisation was mentioned as working on knowledge management platforms for BMGF grantees in India. I then asked the question how your work would be related to SuSanA and Madhu Krishna from BMGF said that you would also be working through/with SuSanA (as well as setting up something separate?).

Could you please tell us more what your contract or grant with the BMGF involves in this respect and what your plans are for these knowledge management and sharing platforms in India?

Regards,
Elisabeth
