Progress (2013-2018)

I5 years, we have reached out to 2000 hamlets across 6 blocks of Raigad district in Maharashtra i.e. Mangaon, Mahad, Tala, Shrivardhan, Poladpur and Mhasla. Our holistic development model covers all aspects of individual and community development through a unique ‘4E’ strategy: engage, empower, execute and exit.

In August 2018, we added a 7th block – Sudhagad, with around 65,000 total and 35% tribal population. Overall, our work is benefiting over 500,000 people with the ultimate objective of rural empowerment.

FOUNDERS'

SPEAK

It’s our unshakeable belief that India will never achieve its true growth story until the rural sector of the country is empowered to make choices and transform their own lives. With this thought, we initiated SHARE (Society to Heal Aid Restore Educate) in 1983. In 2013, SHARE metamorphosed into the Swades Foundation with a mission to empower rural lives through a unique 360-degree development model which covers four key thematic areas namely Health & Nutrition, Education, Water & Sanitation and Economic Development. Our aim is to ensure that this model can be replicated at scale across India and perhaps even the world.
