Looking for New Partners

One of our strategies during the last five years has been to try and identify new groups of people with disabilities who are making products and would like our help to sell them.

We came across several groups in the last four years or so but decided to ask Soir IM (Swedish Organisation for Individual Relief) if they would fund a phone survey of a large number of disability organisations listed on Government of India websites. Soir IM agreed and a capacity-building NGO called Association for Stimulating Know-how (ASK) has helped us to develop a survey tool which young Aman, (seen in the picture) is using. ASK will analyse the final data but we know already that there are a number of groups fit our criteria and we are looking forward to starting conversations with them for samples, sampling and sales.
