Area of Support

During Fellowship and post fellowship if you are working on an idea that can solve a problem that affects the economically disadvantaged, enhances employability in rural and urban India, escalates sustainable Development goals to end extreme poverty by 2025, we're looking for you. Here are a few themes that we care about



we have a passion to create opportunities and reduce adversities.

  • How do you become a result oriented and successful for profit and not for profit entrepreneur?
  • What can we do to solve India's many challenges either as an entrepreneur or employee?
  • How can we reduce the gap ratio of rich and poor?
  • How do we make sure India is shining for everyone and become hunger and beggar free?

From our last 20 years research, we found that there is need of well-educated and informed entrepreneurs to bring in the society. Mushrooming number of NGOs, without proper information and infrastructure may ruin their time and money and bring chaos in the society, whereas a single but well informed and highly supported entrepreneur can make a big change. We welcome every one and are taking action to those mushrooming number of NGOs to be educated and well informed to bring a solid social change that is what we are working for through GATI focusing on the causes we care for
