Company Description

Who We Are

DRF is a not-for-profit organization set up in 1996 to enable socially and economically vulnerable groups to take control of their lives. We develop and test innovative solutions to address complex social problems and promote scaling up of impact by leveraging partnerships. We work with Children, Youth (including Persons with Disabilities) Women and Households across 20 States in India.

Our Story

In 1996 DRF started with the mission to educate and skill young people to fast track them towards livelihood options. DRF’s Livelihood Advancement Business School, better known as LABS, an innovative program way ahead of its time, trained more than five lakh aspirants and was implemented in more than 120 centers across 20 states in India.

But complex social problems require constant innovation and a change in the way we think in order to make a lasting impact. Today, we work with diverse partners to collectively solve problems in the areas of livelihood, education and health. Our recently launched new programs – GROW, MITRA, PUSHTI, FLHTL and ARITRA – builds on the foundation of collaboration for lasting impact.

The leitmotif for DRF's work is problem solving for scale through collaboration and partnerships.
