Ranjit S. Chavan Director General Ranjit S. Chavan

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have been among the most crucial recent developments. Inclusion and Equity are prominently at the centre-stage of many SDGs. This bolsters further AIILSG’s conviction about emphasising on these themes anchored at its International Centre of Equity & Inclusion for Transformation

The team at AIILSG’s International Centre of Equity & Inclusion for Transformation (EQUI-T) synergises with India’s commitment on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which promise to usher in a new era of Inclusion. The centre’s field initiatives are sure to bring about transformation in the lives of the under-privileged & vulnerable populations. The Centre certainly adds value to AIILSG’s institutional commitment to reach out to the marginalized members of our society.
