Institution Building is the least-understood and the most important aspect of building large scale solutions to impact more lives. While technical excellence is crucial, scaling up requires investments in people, processes and systems that stretch far beyond programs themselves. Dasra works with organizations across different stages of maturity and sectors to strengthen leadership and accelerate growth.

Our transformative capacity building support is provided through cohort-based programs and one-on-one engagements, customized to help non-profits achieve ambitious plans to deepen impact. We are privileged to be part of the scaling journey of India’s leading non-profits such as SNEHA, Magic Bus, Educate Girls, Shelter Associates and QUEST Alliance.

Empowering non-profit leaders

Dasra currently offers four capacity building programs. Our programs are a platform for social sector leaders to develop critical skills, share their personal journeys and learn from their peers.

The Dasra Social Impact (DSI) Leadership Program and DSI Accelerator Program have helped hundreds of leaders from non-profits, begin their journey of self-learning.

In partnership with Harvard Business School and Ashoka University, we also offer the Strategic Perspectives for Non-Profit Management (SPNM) and the Strategic Non-Profit Management India (SNMI) programs for senior leaders of established non-profits in India.
