Sankalp took birth in a hostel room - bringing to an end a tormenting helplessness which arose when a person lost his life waiting for blood in Bangalore. The young organisation took baby steps in the common spaces of the college premises after the regular college hours. Meetings happened under the trees and sometimes at the tea shops outside the nearby hospital where the incident had occurred that night.
Through the years, the organisation functioned from volunteers' homes, offices of the partner institutions and public places. Over the last few years, we did realise that the organisation had grown large enough to need some dedicated space for people to get together and work. Finally on a Saturday morning in August 2017, Sankalp India Foundation moved to it's new office at DHI Innovation Park, Near Honeywell, Arekere, Bannerghatta Main Road, Venugopal Reddy Layout, Arekere, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560076, India.
A nice cozy office which is right next to our technology partner - Jagriti Innovation's office has since become a hub of interactions, meetings, building synergy - and also heated debates. This operations office is now the location of the statewide helpline for blood, the back end office of Rakta Kranti, thalassemia management and cure program and the administrative and financial activities of Sankalp.
This will also be the hub for stores and resources required to run the programs of Sankalp. With more and more technology being used across our projects and high emphasis on collaborations, this office will also act as the hub for routine interactions, web conferences etc.
