With 3.5 million NGOs in India, Foundations like Inspirasia face a complex landscape for choosing partners. In India, Inspirasia draws on the experience and expertise of Dasra, India's leading strategic philanthropy foundation. Dasra works with philanthropists and successful social entrepreneurs bringing knowledge, funding, and people together as a catalyst for social change.
Dasra supported Inspirasia to choose and monitor our first five projects in India. Inspirasia also collaborates with Dasra to focus our strategic philanthropy goals globally.
