We work hard to keep our footprint and our costs in the UK to a minimum so that the project funding we raise here can maximise our impact in village India.

Mark Roberts


30 years’ experience as a director of charities pursuing development goals my aim is to facilitate support and nurture unique projects which empower unheard voices and lift people out of poverty. My experience and specialist skills have focused on building and resourcing effective working relationships in a variety of settings from locally based partnerships in the UK to broader European and International coalitions funded by the EU, UN and other International bodies. I see my role in Jeevika as a wonderful opportunity to bring those skills and experience to bear on the challenges of endemic poverty in rural India!
