What They Do
Their model of sustainable development takes years to implement.
It involves altering many aspects of village life, be that better attendance in schools or breaking caste barriers.
At Srinivasan Services Trust, they make the push for transformation in attitudes and step aside once the stakeholders take over. The result is that communities create leaders, keep their environment clean and become self-sufficient. People learn the power of collaboration and use it everyday to better their lives.See more
