MUMBAI: With initiatives like the Tanishka Women’s Dignity Forum network and water-for-all mission of the Delivering Change Foundation (DCF) yielding positive results in Maharashtra, DCF Founder and Chairman Abhijit Pawar on Tuesday announced that activities and initiatives of the foundation will be piloted to national and international levels.
DCF aims to change the lives of the people and communities.
Pawar, who is also Managing Director of Sakal Media Group, was addressing a news conference after the formal launch of the Young Inspirators Network (YIN) on Tuesday at Hotel Hyatt at Kalina in Mumbai.
“The foundation’s initiatives and activities would be piloted from Maharashtra to across India and at the global level,” said Pawar.
According to him, DCF is working on several initiatives, which have been successful.
“We have seen and experienced the results and responses,” added Pawar.
DCF is an independent non-governmental organisation working toward positive changes in the lives of communities through delivering transformative socio-economic programmes within three to five years.
“People have appreciated our efforts. Some states have shown keen interest in DCF initiatives. We are also taking up projects at the global level,” Pawar said.
Pawar said that his recent meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been successful and the latter has shown keen interest in the DCF initiatives.
Speaking about the Tanishka Women’s Dignity Forum, Pawar said it has been highly successful and the network of women is expanding with each passing day.
“By November, we will launch a similar network in Mexico,” he said, adding that since its launch about one-and-a-half years ago, it has shown results and some villages have been transformed.
Pawar shared the success of the ‘Water for All’ lab of the DCF of the Sakal Media Group. It was held in collaboration with the Performance Management and Delivery Unit (PEMANDU) of the Government of Malaysia, Government of Maharashtra and the India Backbone Implementation Network (IBIN) of the Planning Commission of India supported by the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Contemporary Studies of the University of Mumbai, which aims to make Maharashtra drought-free in five years.
“It is extremely successful and has the support of all political parties,” he said.
Pawar said his aim is to involve people and communities and serve them.
“We are speaking to people, government, NGOs, think tanks, policy makers? everyone in the chain and everyone who matters,” he said, adding that he is open to suggestions.
