Why Integrated Development?
It really does take a village. From farmers and tailors to children and youth, Ekal believes in partnering with everyone in the community to help the community thrive.
Our integrated approach means sustainable, scalable, long-lasting impact for millions of people living in rural India.
Together, we have the power to create meaningful change.

"Without Ekal, I would never have known about education. Today, I might have been taking care of the cattle at home instead of getting my degree. Ekal has transformed my life."

"When the coronavirus pandemic came, Ekal invited us to the Gramothan Resource Center to make masks. I made four to five thousand masks, for which the GRC paid me 35,000 rupees. I had never seen so much money in my life, which I earned in only five months. I immediately bought a sewing machine with my earnings and began taking sewing orders at home. Now I earn up to 3,000 rupees per month."
