What We Do


Our Goals

We believe in a holistic approach to development and work in the areas of Education, Healthcare, Livelihood creation, Watershed Development and Governance in the Konkan and Nashik Divisions of Maharashtra.


Our community development work follows a framework that focuses on first understanding the concerns of the community and then empowering these locals to lead the projects they want to see. Because each communities' challenges and aspirations are different, the framework acts as a guide that can be tailored to fit the goals of each community.


We partner communities and leaders to best address real concerns and improve the lives of the people who live in the neighbourhood. With local people leading development efforts, DSF's implementing solutions are unique to the community we serve - a rainwater harvesting dam in one village, vegetable farming in other, maternal health campaigns, school supplies distribution is yet another way to create self-sufficient and self-reliant communities

Our Strategy


DSF seeks to empower smallholder farms in most marginalized areas of Maharashtra. 


The programme aims at ensuring quality education to all students through which they can turn into alert and aware citizens.


Using technology as an important catalyst to achieve progress in all the thematic areas


The focus is to create access to the existing health system and develop health-seeking behaviour among vulnerable sections of society

Water and Enviroment

Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems and sustainably manage forests


Way Ahead

We envisage 'self-reliant villages / urban communities (agglomeration) - as described in the 73rd and 74th Amendment to the Constitution of India. In order to reach this goal, design of solution should be need -specific of the communities. For the communities to be self-reliant requires a set of skills. We endeavour to create those skills through our interventions, which shall stay with the communities.

While achieving these targets we also align ourselves with the Sustainable Development Goals and participate in the 'glo-cal' movement.
