Our Approach

FLAIR is a voluntary organisation working nation-wide across India to create, nurture and operate spaces for learning and action, where all stakeholders work together in the true spirit of partnership. We work to promote the best interests of marginalized groups and societies. FLAIR is unique in the sense that our reach ranges from the grassroots CBOs and Social Movements to Multilateral Corporations, UN Bodies and Governments, wherein we understand and share our perspectives from the local to the global level.

We focus on the continuous enhancement of our own capacities, facilitating better engagement with our partners, and to ensure that our work stays relevant at all times. We work with strong values of integrity, transparency, and accountability, providing customized and need-specific inputs to our partners and target communities. Innovation and Rigour are our cross cutting core values in everything that we do.

Few of our work on development and promotion of innovative solutions include – “Voice Integrated Browser” (link) and “EzzyPoshan” (link).
