U Turn Foundation comprehends that the work of an NGO has diverse ideological origins and underpinnings. We need to have a basic understanding of these backgrounds, if we are to design strategies for the future, confronted by rapidly changing social, political and economic environments.

 As an organization U Turn Foundation believes in doing the basics right. Our four pillars of undertakings which will guide us undeterred to the right path in the coming years are as follows:

  • ·         Leadership
  • ·         Focus
  • ·         Research
  • ·         Capacity building

U Turn Foundation is consistently building skills and abilities with an aim to play an engagingly dynamic and significant role in the following areas:

  • Infrastructure development
  • Education
  • Livelihood
  • Utilization and development of renewable energy sources
  • Forestry through formation of renewable energy associations at block level
  • Water management and soil conservation
  • Social welfare programs for weaker sections of the society
  • Conservation of ecological balance and rural development
  • Environment protection
  • Health for all programs
  • Implementation of minimal needs program
  • Disaster preparedness and management

Our stepping stones to future primarily hinge on accepting the current five trends shaping the NGO sector axis:

  • ·         Decline in northern government influence
  • ·         Rise of global south
  • ·         The social network effect
  • ·         Era of hyper transparency
  • ·         Convergence of immoral and corrupt problems

In wake of these problems U Turn Foundation is ready and prepared to move into the next generation of NGO-Business strategies:

  • ·         Move from confrontation to collaboration
  • ·         Selectivity around partnerships
  • ·         Increase in social ventures
  • ·         Emphasis on multi stakeholder initiatives
  • ·         Rise in virtual campaigns
  • ·         Revolutionising grass root activism

NGOs have to play critical role in socioeconomic development in India where government capacity and revenues are often very limited.
