UPL Unnati Project



About Project

UNNATI (उन्नति) is a Hindi word which means Progress. We are working with Renovate India for progress of 6 CBOs from Mumbai and our objective is

  • To provide hand holding and mentoring support to 6 organizations located in Mumbai, to improve their functional efficiency and effectiveness during the year 2015-16.
  • To facilitate upgradation of skills and overall organizational efficiency, and hence enable large, community access to quality education and skill development support.


About Partner

Renovate India works to mentor small, local CBOs by hand holding to increase their capacities in five areas – Operation Management; Human Resource Management; Financial Management; Promotion and Marketing; & Proposal Writing.

Their core team of professional social workers have been working on the ground for over five years and have identified a need for improving the functionality of already existing community based organization.
