This report by CII and RTI is a timely effort in drawing attention towards the crucial issues related to low social mobility in the country and the larger landscape in which education and employment sectors have to operate.
There is an urgent need for development sector stakeholders – non–profit leaders, funders and eco–system enablers to challenge the status quo and bring about long-term systemic changes in the ways organizations are run and the investments they make for institution building.
The findings of this report reinforce these facts – it stresses on the need for greater collective investment to improve the landscape of development sector organizations. It reveals certain weaknesses in the system and calls for an increase in awareness, availability and accessibility of support services that can strengthen these organizations. This report lays the ground for funders, social sector leaders and other intermediaries to understand various ecosystem related challenges and offers actionable suggestions for improvement – all driven by the ultimate goal of maximizing social impact in the country.
