Out of a population of 1.4 billion people, India has more than 80 million people living in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.50 per day. Schools that were built 75 years ago are in dilapidated conditions and lacking basic sanitation facilities, with girls often dropping out of school after puberty due to lack of toilets. Child marriage, child labor, malnutrition, high mortality rates, and disease are common, inexcusable sufferings of communities in rural India.
Challenges Nonprofits in India Face:
The 4 million nonprofits in India working towards breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty have a steep uphill task of creating meaningful change even though they are stretched for resources. While this forces them to learn how to navigate around a radically frugal mindset, it also poses a critical problem: the danger and tendency to cut back on the wrong things, potentially starving innovation, ignoring peripheral issues and diminishing impact.
What We Do
The biggest planet in our Solar System, Jupiter embodies growth, expansion and groundedness. The Jupiter 360 Foundation takes a circular view of your non-profit to engage in a conversation on what challenges you, so we think with you, not for you.
Often, the road to growth is not a linear path, it is multi-dimensional, traversing multiple terrains addressing strategic and tactical solutions in operations, management, human resources, legal, financial.
Since inception the Jupiter team has worked with over a dozen nonprofits and shown proof of concept and phenomenal on the ground impact.
Currently with a new cohort of NGOs in India, we are gearing up with teaming up advisors to work one on one with NGO leaders to identify and solve challenges that keep them up at night. Setting up baselines, we track progress over a period of six months with the help of sound project management technologies.
While solving challenges is a clear cut strategy, the long term objectives are to train leadership and volunteers to think differently, set audacious goals, learn effective fundraising techniques, use technology to improve efficiency and build a culture of learning and growth for a sustainable future. Real world solutions in the fast changing business landscape.
