Home CATEGORIES Education and Skill Training Toyota Kirloskar Motor launches SALT to train and empower nonprofits
India’s rapid progress and emergence of manufacturing sector has turned tables and caused focus to shift to compliance of CSR regulations and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of 2030, thereby encouraging patterns of social sector funding. Sensing this shift, Toyota conceptualized SALT (Social Academy of Learning) to develop conscious and effective leaders to deliver largescale social change.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor, in its sustained outreach to create a better ecosystem in the area of CSR, announced the launch of the SALT by Toyota. With this programme Toyota aims to further build the capacity of NPOs, ensure quality management, work excellence. The first five-day residential cohort of the Social Academy of Learning by Toyota was organized from 2nd -7th February, 2020 at the Toyota plant in Bidadi with the support of KPMG India and Common Purpose in India.
SALT was conceived to develop NPO leaders to become more entrepreneurial, strategic and high-performing in order to create large-scale social change. The pilot programme aims to be an opportune platform for senior leaders of NPOs to express their challenges, explore best practices and develop capabilities by leveraging the strengths of sector experts and peers from within the group. The sessions will explore areas such as project planning, tax and regulations, branding and communication, sustainability and monitoring and evaluation which ultimately results in an effective delivery of a project.
