a self titled ‘do-tank’!

We are a policy implementation organization doing the necessary tasks to see that policies designed to transform the social fabric of the country are fully realized, a self titled 'do-tank'!

Our core actions define how we conduct ourselves in any scenario


To all with an open and curious mind. It can be about small act of pausing long enough to 'listen' deeply to the other person


With purpose, courage and commitment. It can be about small 'act' of taking risks to act in the face of uncertainity


Innovate to grow. It can be about the small act of 'changing' one's own frame of looking at a difficult situation.
