India Disability Empowerment Alliance
India disability Empowerment Alliance (IDEA) – Capacity building is another strategy of Sarthak that helps to bridge the gap between the haves and have nots in society. It is an approach to development that builds independence.
IDEA is building the process by which any organization retains and improves the skills and knowledge crucial to accomplishing a set of strategic objectives - which are most often to build a scalable and sustainable plan for the beneficiaries. Sarthak aims to connect to all the NGOs working in the disability sector, big or small, so that each and every PwD can leverage the platform in the most useful way. This way, all organizations, irrespective of their size can share mutual ideas and together benefit the PwDs.
As development actors like Sarthak itself, It has become key service providers to small sized NGOs where the government is unable to fulfill its traditional role. It tries its best to show greater ability to innovate. This is done through various workshops where a lobby of like minded is created, fostering new ideas thus paving a way for absolute growth.

The key areas through which Sarthak tries its best to help other NGOs are – Strategy Monitoring & Evaluation, Fundraising, and Human Resources Program Standardization & Delivery Administrative systems, Finance Leadership, Marketing and Governance.
