The Foundation has created strategic collaboration platform National Volunteering Grid (NVG). India@75’s National Volunteering Grid www.nvgindia.org is a robust IT platform to promote and facilitate an ecosystem for structured volunteering thus, encouraging greater citizen participation and multi-sectoral partnerships for active citizenship, inclusion and creating social capital.
NVG is a convergence platform where Corporates adopt engaging and impactful volunteering activities and populate them to provide flexible volunteering opportunities for employees.The online portal brings together industry, civil society and citizens to collaborate on pressing issues through the instrument of volunteering and pro bono services.
