COVID19 crises have again indicated and proven globally that the responsible business practices and cross-sector partnerships play an important role than ever before. It is the most essential principle to balance the business, environment/planet, and social impact while creating or expanding business and innovation opportunities. In this era, no one organization/ stakeholder/ country can handle the situation alone; hence atypical partnership is the most essential strategy.
After 15 years in the health sector and industry, I determined to alter direction, and decided to share my passion, experience and learning/skills by bringing together multiple and inter-/intra-disciplinary stakeholders to design and deliver solutions for social impact.
With this backdrop, the International Institute for Human Development (IIHD India) was founded, to drive the commitment of social impact through two key approaches, (1) human-centered solutions and (2) ecosystem partnership. Our ramp up process is designed to partner, engage and empower ecosystem with genuine mechanisms to solve social problems while feeling connected to a higher purpose. During this journey, our target ecosystem partners are Government, NGOs, corporates, social-corporate foundations, social enterprises, patient organisations, community or self-help groups.
Through this social business model, not only I have found my own passion, but also, I am delighted to help others find their own life purpose through our projects and programs. I am fortunate for having experienced professionals and leaders who are equally aligned with the purpose and committed to serve for social impact.
