How does Kranti work in partnership with government, civil society, and companies?
In India, government agencies and the legal system often play a role in perpetuating trafficking and ineffective rehabilitation programs. Consequently, the only government agencies we are currently affiliated with are education-related organizations that help ensure the Revolutionaries will receive formal education credentials despite their lack of documentation or immigrant status.
Kranti also partners with several companies, including architecture firms who provided design resources and will donate materials for the construction of Kranti's sustainable, compressed-earth brick home. In addition, we have several corporate sponsors, including Indian hospitality service providers and American engineering firms. Lastly, civil society involvement is at Kranti's core: we strive to engage as many communities as possible to further our mission of attacking gender inequality. Thus far, we have forged partnerships with academic institutions (providing internships for Indian Masters of Social Work students), activist groups, community and neighborhood programs, non-profits in the field, and several sports/social clubs. These partnerships and teammates will help Kranti build a solid support system to achieve their goals.
