“Thanks to ISRF, we were able to strengthen & expand our VLE Channel in Tamil Nadu. When we connected with ISRF team, they had already done a lot of work in rural India and had a good understanding of the rural institutions and their ways of working. Their understanding of the socio-economic nuances of rural India helped us in expanding the reach of the channel to remote rural locations. Their extensive footprint (directly or through partner organisations) across the state enabled quick expansion.
The team at ISRF was always agile and open to new suggestions which helped in collaborating with them and improve efficiencies. Thanks to Satheesh and the entire team at ISRF for their support in building this channel”.
“ISRF carried out our projects with utmost professionalism, enthusiastic involvement and integrity. The CEO of ISRF was personally involved in managing the outcomes and provided proactive communication”.

“We hired ISRF as M&E partner for our three-year project ( Jan 2017 – Feb 2020 ) ‘Giving the poorest consumer a greater voice’ implemented in India and Indonesia which was supported by IKEA Foundation. ISRF helped us in designing the project’s M&E framework and conducted monitoring visits, midline and endline evaluations with our implementing partners in both countries. These study findings helped us in completing a very challenging yet innovative project targeting a behavioural change in poorer consumers towards purchasing and using sustainable and safe household products.
I appreciate ISRF particularly for their efficiency , professionalism, creativity as well as flexibility that helped us design and deliver the project successfully. As a result, a replicable model of behavioral change towards sustainability targeting low income consumers was developed based on learnings of this project”.
ISRF helped us design, implement and monitor our 5-year CSR project with agricultural farmers supported by John Deere Foundation, with at most professionalism delivering quality outcomes on time.
