Sanchaya Nele began as a loose group of activists who came together in 2003 to strategize around common issues that they were facing in working in rural Bangalore. The organization works to promote the development of dalits, adivasis, religious minorities and the poor, with a particular emphasis on women. Sanchaya Nele's approach centers on public campaigning, capacity building, human rights advocacy, crisis intervention and networking and alliance building.
