NGOImpact is brought to you by ARION Rating Services.
ARION stands for the Assessment and Rating of Implementation Organisations and NGOs. ARION aims to revolutionise the Indian social sector's access to and use of the evolving digital ecosystem. The digitisation of social sector data will inevitably become a prerequisite to funding and ARION aims to lead the way in facilitating this progressive transition.
The idea for ARION emerged predominantly out of the recognition that the NGO sector required stronger accountability and performance benchmarks that would allow for fairer assessments, accurate showcasing and democratisation of funding, using appropriate and relevant tools.
However, given the lack of digital access for most NGOs, the first step was to create a credible marketplace that could seamlessly showcase NGOs and engage with funders, alongside building a community and curating topical content.
