Partner Support Programme

We believe that strong partnerships help create larger impact. In a vast country like India with a multitude of development needs, RF(I)T partners with like-minded Organizations across the country to broaden outreach and impact of its work. Over the years, we have partnered 49 Organizations, not limiting ourselves by geography or sectors. Our partnerships have covered health, education, livelihoods, disability, community services, disaster relief & rehabilitation as well as establishment of educational institutions. This is now a niche programme for RF(I)T, with a few key partnerships.
