Our world faces complex problems that require a paradigm shift in mind-set and action. There is a critical need to broad base participation and contribution if we are to accelerate the pace of development and “leave no one behind”. New age solutions will be compelled to be future-ready and hence, consider eco-system wide consequences while being contextualised to local requirements. This approach calls for “everyone in” and action at three layers in society to create long term systemic change.

Idobro’s end-to-end approach seeks to overcome systemic barriers, provide market-based solutions and forge alliances driven by shared values and activated at 3 levels in the eco-system:

Idobro has executed projects in 7 countries and 24 states of India impacting over 8,000,000 individuals, 250000 students, 175000 corporate employees, 1000+ Entrepreneurs and 500+ Institutions and organisations.
