I had an opprotuity to know about SAATH's work in an experience sharing workshop held at EDI, Ahmedabad. The range of activities is good and it builds upon the model piloted in AP under the DFID funded program but the beauty of it is that it has been done on a voluntary basis with taking the community needs as its priority and then looking for external help.

I first came in touch with Saath last year around this time while I was working on a project that was trying to capture the work of organzations which were using a mutli pronged approach to address the issue of urban poverty. Saath to this end was an obvious choice given the holistic nature of its intervention in commumities it engages with. Saath's approach is striking not only in its inclusiveness of the issues that it tries to address but more importantly the investment it has made in setting up robust community owned institutions which serve the foundation for the stupendous work that exists on the ground.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the most approachable and committed that I have known in my 7 yrs of association with the non profit sector in the country
