Study to connect non-profits with professionals on a pro-bono basison

The study will help the sector as a whole, and the NGOs to access highly priced professionals for small projects. Thank you for helping!
This is to invite Mumbai based non-profits to participate in a study on impact of skill-based volunteering by professionals who wish to support social change with pro-bono work, rather than donations.
The study is being conducted by Drishtant ( - a platform that connects non-profits with socially conscious professionals. Registered non-profits can post specific, short term requirements (eg. a women's livelihood group needs fresh designs for kurtis that they can tailor, or a health service needs behaviour change communication pamphlets designed...see website for range of ideas). On seeing their post, professionals interested in supporting the cause can get in touch with the non-profit directly, and volunteer their services at no charge (skill-based volunteering).
By participating, your non-profit may be able to secure some professional services free of cost which may otherwise be an expenditure item for the organization, as well as gain visibility as part of a research project intended for publication. There is no fee for participation in this study, but there is a cap on the number of projects that will be posted. The study will conclude by July 2012.
If you wish to participate or learn more or share thoughts, please write to me at
