India is a country of contrasts. While our cities boom and stock markets rise, millions of our citizens live below the poverty line, with no access to basic resources like health care, nutrition, education, and clean water.
If we are to advance as a nation, it is essential to reduce these societal inequities, thereby ensuring the opportunity for every Indian to achieve their greatest potential.
Many individuals want to get involved; however, given the scale of the problems, many are left wondering, “How can I make a difference?” or “How do I know which NGO is doing good work?”. SVP India has the answers.

At SVP India, we help you begin your philanthropic journey by :
Introducing you to the non-profit and development ecosystem
Giving you opportunities to do hands-on volunteering work with credible NGOs
Connecting you to like -minded individuals in your city, country & globally
The SVP Model
Across our chapters, this is the framework of how we operate.
The time commitment and expectations for each role, be it a Lead Partner or a member of the Grants or Review committees, are well-defined and clearly communicated to potential members in order to find a good fit for each partner.
SVP India signs on “partners” that are individuals interesting in getting involved with philanthropy in the hands-on way rather than a cheque writing capacity.
Our partners pool together their capital contributions, and as a group, we decide on a few NGOs to support, after going through an exhaustive due diligence and selection process conducted by a partner-led Grants Committee.
