SELCO Foundation is a not-for-profit organization based out of India. The organization works towards creating a holistic ecosystem to provide reliable energy access for underserved communities in a manner that is socially, financially, and environmentally sustainable. The Foundation works to link the benefits of sustainable energy to poverty eradication by collaborating with NGO partners, local financial institutes, and social enterprises.
SELCO Foundation has worked strongly towards building inclusive ecosystems for Decentralized Renewable Energy (DRE) access for the underserved populations in the past decade. Efforts have been made in the themes of livelihood, health and built-environment to innovate efficient solutions, powered by renewable energy, and via the synergies made with ecosystem partners and stakeholders at multiple levels (individual to institutional), these solutions have been made affordable and accessible to the underserved communities on ground. The interventions designed are aimed at leading to positive upliftment in the lives of these communities, balancing social and environmental sustainability. Holistic approaches are used that simultaneously encompass social, financial and environmental dimensions.An iterative and collaborative approach is required to be adopted in the ecosystem to improve the effectiveness of SELCO Foundation’s interventions, considering various stakeholders as well as other systems at play. This has necessitated comprehensive learnings of the teams to be generated on systems thinking approach and developing a holistic problem-solving mindset. By way of workshops in the past, the fundamental phases and methods in systems thinking has been imbibed by the teams, however, a more intensive handholding support to the teams, for deepening their learnings as well as incorporating them in actual program designs, has been identified as a need of the hour. Through the framework and tools of systems thinking and learnings on the application of this approach, SELCO Foundation hopes that the teams will be able to locate high impact areas early in the process and plan for effective collaborations. With a system thinking approach, the SELCO team will be able to become problem-solvers that view 'problems' as part of a wider, dynamic system.
