Our Donors/Partners :

MYRADA has been able to achieve what it has over the decades largely due to the support of its donors. Before 2000, it was the largesse of several European donors. This was followed by a long-term association between MYRADA and some of the key donors which included Plan International, German Agro Action (now called Welthunger Hilfe), NOVIB, SDC, CIDA, HIDA, etc. After the millennial turn, the donor profile changed to include central and state government sectors and NABARD.  In the last ten years, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) funds have been the mainstay for Myrada. Some of the larger donors from the CSR sector are Hindustan Unilever Foundation, ITC limited, HSBC, HDFC and several other donors.  The list below acknowledges each one of them for their support to MYRADA.
