A Diverse Development Network in India
  • Crisis: Community development plays an important role for an economy to succeed. AKAHI works to (a) ensure that rural and urban communities manage their habitat sustainably and self-sufficiently, with the ability to cope if a disaster occurs, (b) improve the quality of their lives, (c) give access to services and opportunities, and (d) enable them to become the agents of change.
  • Programs: AKAHI's programs are holistic in approach and designed around training and capacity building on environment, sustainability, climate change, health and sanitation, water management, and disaster risk reduction. The idea is to strengthen the coping mechanisms and resilience of the targeted disadvantaged communities and empower them with economic opportunities, knowledge, technology, and research. The goal is self-reliance, and the methodology is inclusive and community driven. Local institutions are developed as models and individuals act as leaders to set them on the path for development with ownership and goals.
  • Outcome: So far, AKAHI has worked with 216 schools, 162 villages, and directly impacted 800,000+ beneficiaries from marginalized and poor communities through improved housing, habitat development and water and sanitation. They also transported 51 tons of relief material for communities affected during the Kerala floods.
