Organisation Overview (Samhita.org)


Samhita is a social impact consulting firm, with a vision to build a ‘better normal’. The better normal reimagines
business environments where social value is an integral aspect of growth, putting stakeholders and environmental
guardianship at the center of business strategy, a strategy that evolves from inputs to outcomes, from individuals to
ecosystem, and from delivering services to building capacity and enabling the market.
To do this, we support companies to align their core competencies with the needs of the social sector, and build
catalytic partnerships with stakeholders with in-depth knowledge and networks to execute sustainable,
outcome-oriented social impact initiatives. This approach bridges the gap between purpose and action, and forges
business responsibility strategies that balance people, profit and planet, thereby creating a better normal for
communities, environments and businesses.
