In Brief:


A Rang De Chapter comprises of a group of volunteers and social investors of a city (in India or abroad) that would like to do more than making a social investment to fulfil Rang De's vision of making affordable micro-credit in India a reality.


Chapters support Rang De by spreading the awareness about Rang De and micro-credit within their city, blogging about Rang De, and through any means they chose to.


What Rang De Chapter Members are currently doing to support Rang De:


  • Field Visits

    • Arrange regular field visits for Rang De social investors to evaluate borrowers and loan processes.


  • Develop relationships with companies in their cities

    • Contact CSR departments of companies in their cities

    • Organize awareness events (information session, stalls)


  •  Arrange social events for chapter members

    • This is for chapter members to interact more, understand each other and work together constructively to make a difference! Possible activities include

      • Socially relevant seminars, workshops, plays etc
      • Periodic activities such as lunch/dinner, movies, theme parks, sports arcade etc.


  • Document chapter activities
