IMPACTNOW is a resource platform that has emerged out of ongoing initiatives aimed at Social Sector Development Programs.

It is also a platform for generating better understanding and fostering collective action on critical issues and emerging priorities such as sustainable livelihoods, violence against women, sanitation, financial inclusion and governance of social development programs and welfare schemes.

It brings diverse expertise and experiences from the ground from different segments with a thrust on the social inclusion of the vulnerable and marginalized groups. We are committed to support Social Sector initiatives of our various partners by providing technical support, training, and hand holding to learn and benefit from innovations centered around the adopted themes already underway.
