Building Human & Social Capital for sustainable development
Ultimately, success is about sustainable relationships. By redefining our relationship with our planet and investing in protecting and replenishing our natural wealth we directly impact the building of Human Capital and Social Capital leading to greater equity and economic growth.
SVYM has a long history of collaboration with global partners for water security and reducing water inequity in rural and urban areas in Karnataka.
Towards Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), our multi stakeholder approach involving individuals, organisations and the Govt. is turned into action at schools, anganwadi centres and communities, seeing children as the harbingers of change through a child to child, child to family and child to community approach.
SVYM has also taken up projects in renewable energy through solar electrification of villages and remote tribal hamlets to accelerate their development.
At SVYM, being responsible towards our energy consumption and waste production is seen as practising Ahimsa (non violence), one of our four core values. We strive to make all our events zero plastic and have switched to solar energy for power generation in our institutions.

Ask nothing; want nothing in return.
Give what you have to give;
it will come back to you, but do not think of that now.
