We believe in the conjunction of business

and community partnership as an answer


to the most pressing challenges in society
today. At Vikasa International Center, we
build those partnerships.

Social Entrepreneurship and Business Responsibility

WHAT WE ENVISION
We see the evolution of a just and peaceful society taking place through
the teaming up of business both small and medium, as well as large
industry with communities, through the aligning of sustainability
with corporate vision; and through social enterprise and innovation,
championing social change through creative solutions.

HOW WE INTEND TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN


Social Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship Promotion and MicroEnterprise Development: focus on women and youth

Facilitating and nurturing MSMEs & Clusters and existing start


ups towards social responsibility

Offering social and sustainability solutions to six key sectors


(Mining, FMCG, Beverages, Pharma, Textiles and Paper & Pulp) on
meeting social challenges

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Vikasa International Center, a wing of the
non-profit Bala Vikasa, is the culmination
of 37 years of working with communities
across 6000 villages in Andhra Pradesh
and Telangana, through various community
driven development programs which have
impacted close to four million rural poor.
We bring this intimate knowledge and
experience of sustainable development to all
our collaborations and projects. It forms the
foundation of our philosophy and approach.
For business, we integrate this philosophy
with optimizing social opportunities for
greater visibility, sustainability and impact.

FOR SMEs AND CLUSTERS


Small and Medium Sized Enterprises and Clusters have the incredible potential to
industrialize the backward regions of rural India. They employ approximately 40%
of the working population and produce 45% of the countrys manufacturing output.
Most SMEs operate in proximity to communities and therefore understand and
can empathize better with community needs. The Cluster approach is propagated
for these units for attaining cumulative impact. There is a need to build their
institutional capabilities, facilitation and support services. We fulfil those needs.
- Institutional capability development for SMEs at cluster-level on Business
Social Responsibility
- Promoting SME capabilities for community & stakeholder engagement
- Supporting existing start-ups with mentoring and venture support.
