“SAB has been working extensively on inclusion issues across its interventions. Since inception, the focus has largely been on marginalised communities, difficult territories and segments which remain out of scope for majority of the departmental schemes. Our idea of development is to build capacities of the target communities, youth & women, build resilience amongst the micro-entrepreneurs, develop and strengthen backward and forward linkages while conserving the natural resources. Our focus on development has always been holistic targeting communities, natural resources and strong intentions to build a peaceful place for all lives,” says Karan Girdhar, Chief Executive Officer, Skills Art and Beyond (SAB).
