OUR modus operaNdi

 

methodology

our GUIDING PRINCIPLES

AHIMSA

Translated from Sanskrit it means

“non violence”. The word is composed of two components - “a” (without) + “himsa” (harm or injury). This is our ethical principle.

economy of PERMANENCE

Economist  JC Kumarappa ‘s concept (from the book of the same name) in which sustainable development is seen as permanent (not transient) within the limits of nature and our environment.

decentralization

Decentralized systems involve smaller capital costs, autonomy of control, lower life cycle costs and independence from central networks and bureaucracies.

non privatization

We are opposed to the privatization of essential resources - particularly water. We believe that any solution to resource delivery must have the input, involvement and management of the community it  serves.

eco effective design

A concept of William McDonough & Michael Braungar from their book CRADLE TO CRADLE, eco effective design is design not in isolation but as a part of whole interconnected system. Such design will go beyond basic purpose to context and to the impact in time, space, culture, commerce and ecology.

Micro loans made to the poor without the necessary physical, financial and know- how infrastructures, are NOT likely to create enterprises that are sustainable and can also deliver predictable incomes.

infraSys invests to set up

micro-enterprises. in villages.

Our goal is the creation of livelihoods and infrastructure for the rural population. Money is one of the tools we use. Collaboration is another. 

Our investments involve primary production of goods and services which can begin to link rural markets and make their economies vibrant – resulting in an overall improvement in quality and standard of life.


This approach is more likely to be sustainable after any financial support is removed.

infraSys is a self sustaining business which invests, recovers its investments with profit and reinvests capital and the profits in rural areas.



THIS IS OUR BUSINESS MODEL


infraSys is not an NGO, a Trust, a Foundation, a Charity or a Micro Finance Institution  (MFI) and does not fund or finance such institutions.
