Improving the Lives in Rural India by Technology-enabled Solutions

Partners - Field Execution

Wheels Global Foundation’s entire strategy is ecosystem-centric. Wheels achieve its results through collaboration with on-the-ground execution partners as well as those bringing in necessary resources (technology, volunteers, expertise, funds, access, etc.).

We invite all impact-focused entities with a similar vision (‘Impacting 20% of India’s Rurban population by 2030”) to join us to make that a reality together. Our partners bring a very diverse set of capabilities such as:
