ABOUT THE BOOK

Together We Empower offers a close look at a unique NCO that has been working in partnership with communities in rural India since 1999. The history of Sehgal Foundation illustrates a path of rich progress along with some missteps that resulted in valuable learning. This record reveals the rationale and the hearts behind the organization's entrepreneurial approach to rural development-an undertaking that is deeply rooted in a team culture, collaborative relationships, and an unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of the rural poor.

“... a roadmap for development workers and organizations engaged in initiatives to bring about sustained long-term social change in partnership with communities, and required reading for students of rural development.”
