Sahyog - Brace for Better

Sahyog is a collaborative of several socially conscious small businesses and entrepreneurs, with proven world class professional experience. Government departments and officers across the country are stretched beyond limits with the significant demands on them - handling priorities and doing so under extremely personal duress and grief.

The Sahyog collaborative intends to streamline the complexities and ease the burden of our government offices, by bringing the best of their professional experience.

Sahyog intends to extend support in the following areas:

  • Ease managerial complexities by setting up simple to use MIS, project management checklists and more
  • Influence COVID appropriate behaviour through communication campaigns and other strategies based on behavioural science
  • Improve mental well being by offering group and individual sessions for officers, their families and their teams, including Heartfulness and counselling
  • Provide relief to the society - for example government schools struggling with online education, increased cases of domestic violence and the like - through customised problem solving and partnering with best class NGOs
