Who we are

With speed being central to our approach, it’s critical to have a stabilizing force.


This is done by our Governing Council of eminent individuals with rich experience from diverse backgrounds and expertise, guide and steer the efforts of the collaborative. They keep the collaborative still, even in intense action!

It meets fortnightly to help in defining, reviewing and evolving principles, policies, partnerships, programs/ actions and resourcing for the Collaborative. They also ensure that key decision-makers in the government, in private and civil society, and within communities are closely engaged with and their perspective is included for collective action.

Our Governing Council brings in a wealth of learning from the areas of health, livelihoods, disaster management, food supplies, bureaucracy, academia, technology and strategic giving.


By enrolling you can contribute to and benefit from this collaboration. Also, do encourage other organisations and experts to join hands with us. The key benefits of being part of the collaborative is access to people, resources, financing & partnerships and the ability to make a greater collective impact.

COVIDActionCollab is not merely an aggregation of partners, but is an aggregation of capacities, through which we have developed key high impact initiatives. We have drawn upon our one year’s experience at CAC and engagement with our large constituency of partners to put together a menu of initiatives for funders/investors to support which will save lives and livelihoods, and enable vulnerable communities to 'bounce forward’. Support these initiatives to build resilient communities
