Mission : Sustainable development at community, national and global level

Goal : Sustainable livelihoods in large numbers  

The Development Alternatives family of organisations brings together traditional knowledge and modern science.  We design appropriate technologies and institutions for the creation of sustainable livelihoods.  Our activities focus on basic human needs: water, shelter, energy, sanitation, environmental resources and employment.

DAINET, our information network, gives access worldwide to our research and action programmes.

The Development Alternatives Group (or the "DA Group") comprises Development Alternatives and its associate organisations in India: namely, TARA (Technology and Action for Rural Advancement) and People First. It also includes their respective subsidiaries, Tara Nirman Kendra, Tara Leasing and Finance, and DESI Power. (A brief note about the DA Group).
