About Us

OUR BRAND STORY

 

Direct Dialogue Initiatives India aims to provide ethical fundraising and public engagement services to civil society organisations in the development sector. We strive to support environmental and social justice organisations by engaging citizens in direct dialogue on issues that affect them.

 

To achieve this, we aim to provide a wide range of services in the areas of donor enrollment, retention, mobilisation, and marketing. Our key focus is to raise both one-off and recurring donations from individuals across the country for environmental and social justice causes.

 

Founded by Mr Aroon Raman and Mr Arvind Shivakumar, Direct Dialogue Initiatives India has Greenpeace Stitching Council as a major investor and shareholder. Together, we intend to create an enterprise that offers engagement assistance to civil society organisations in building a strong supporter and donor base, and developing a sustainable model of financial support for their work.

 

Direct Dialogue Initiatives India currently has offices in seven cities – Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, and Kolkata.
