In our view the long term solution to India’s sanitation crisis lies in the hands of the corporate world. Your government has provided a pathway for businesses to become actively involved in impactful CSR work. Organisations such as We Can’t Wait and our partners in Rotary are very excited about this prospect and already there are clearly some very positive outcomes in providing improved sanitation in Indian schools thanks to strong leadership among Indian corporates. Thanks so much to The CSR Journal for helping us raise the awareness of this important and exciting opportunity to improve lives of India’s most underprivileged children.

Media plays a key role in creating awareness about the social issues and create consciousness amongst wider audiences, as it also provides insights into the various activities being done by institutions in respect to taking up social causes. It’s heartening to read about CSR activities done by various organizations in The CSR Journal. It’s one of the few dedicated media in India with a wide reach that helps us in identifying opportunities, create better understanding of the needs of the society as well as amplify good work done by corporates

The work CSR Journal is showcasing in terms of what people think and do, is amazing. You could use social media and connects to reach out to more people and tell them the absolute need for it. As a law itself, not too many people know how to adhere to it. The CSR Journal could make a chip by chip impact on the minds of people on giving back. You can not only be the monitoring body but also the suggestion body.
