Incubation Hub

“Wherever there is a need we will be there”

“Wherever there is a need we will be there”, was the initial idea behind our incubation hub. We believe in holistic development since many human and environmental needs are deeply connected and interdependent. Our incubation hub gives us an opportunity to broaden our work to solve broader issues.

Any new idea is first nurtured as part of our incubation hub, piloted and then up scaled. Few of our earlier projects in the incubation hub, which is currently being successfully run include VTC, Divya Janani and Swayam Sikkim.

Projects undertaken and ongoing

COVID 19 Response

At the onset of the Global Pandemic, ROCF decided to stand with our distressed fellow countrymen, and actively participate in the national effort to support them at this difficult time through various National level relief work. We were also actively engaged in several initiatives for COVID Relief in the second wave of the Pandemic in India.

Breathe Safe and My Mask My Safety 

ROCF with support from various other NGOs and corporates conducted various N95 mask campaigns during the pandemic to ensure that frontline workers were protected. ROCF tried to ensure that the supplies of masks in large quantities reached the unreached, thereby supporting the efforts of state machinery in its efforts to curb the pandemic.

Project Smile 

Project Smile by HP Indigo was an initiative where high quality smiling pictures of corona warriors are printed and stuck on the protective suits so that the patient and others can recognize the person easily.
