Dear Bhavna and all.
Hello. My first post here in this community.
peacetrips.blogspot.in is about a rural ecotourism and development project.
We are looking for CSR activities in our village project.
All info is on the blog. There's a section called CSR there.
We can also connect your CSR with your HR trainings, team building, leadership etc. I'm an adventure sports instructor.
Pls give it a look.

Hi All, We conducted a dental camp for all our employees at our location in Bangalore. It was from a company called MobiDent. They came up to to our office reception in their mobile unit which I must say was well equipped. They did a evidence based screening for all the employees who wanted to use the facility. Finally they sent us a report of the same. It so happened they also advised some of our employees to reduce/stop cigarettes and Guthka chewing habits.They have noticed some painless white patches in the cheeks which could have been a dangerous cancer like situation if neglected. They visit us every 6 months. Over all I must say it was a pleasant experience for our employees.

This is really a noble cause and will definitely help the people to improve on their dental care. Thanks for posting such a wonderful reports and literature.
Dear All,

I agree with the approach of Sheela Mistry- a philanthropic way of CSR carries out activities that are non-sustainable short term welfare oriented and a company can always stop them but may still continue to put pictures of the past in its frame. Most of the times there are no follow-up activities to know or ensure that the benefits taken were sustained by the people and more than often the activities are not the real needs of the beneficiaries but rather what we think sitting from cushiony chairs as good/fashionable, etc. Hence the idea itself of making list on various themes is futile. Corporate is a legal entity and continues to drive benefits from the society in a sustainable manner in the form of its profits and CSR is a way the Corporate can become a responsible entity of that society by giving it back in a sustainable manner.

Now in order to sustain - we need to see what is the bottom line of the company and what bottom lines it needs to work on. Profit is definitely a bottom line that all business die hard to achieve but do the business die hard to achieve social and environmental benefits to the society? How can they unless these aspects are also bottom-lines and support each other in growth- most importantly gives back to the economic bottomline!

So look out for supply chains! look out for support industries! look out for alternate employment options for persons reaching invalidity! look out for livelihood connected with the goods of your supply chain! look out for consumers and buyers! But in the end look out for a meaningful development of vulnerable beneficiaries which can look out for your economic bottom-line!

Hi Bhavana We are making short films on CSR which will dubbed in 16 languages can i have ur maild id so that i cam mail you the details or else once call me on my number 9160345785
We are professionals in CSR and publish a magazine named CSR VISION, the first of its kind in the country.
we are of the opinion that CSR is a tool more effective than advertising and instead of doing philanthrophy/charity CSR is a profit generating game. It is simple B2B proposition with brand building exercise. We tried it with a few companies and have been more than successful. We are here to help you.

CSR activities around the area your office is situated-cleanliness campaign,putting up of garbage disposal buckets,Watering of trees,planting of trees,having stray dogs s in the area picked up and sterilised,health check up of employees,customers,.
All depends on budget and inclination.

Dear Sirs and mam's.
I represent a cluster of 17 villages in a certain Pokhri block of Chamoli district in Uttarakhand. Mine is a backward district. Our district gets BRGF funds (Backwards Region Grant Fund) from central govt.
Last to last year we were hit by the Himalayan Tsunami too. The Kedarnath floods as its better known as.

We are a rural area and had approached CEPT university, Ahmedabad for intervention 3 yrs back. Since then we have been getting interns every summer in our village cluster.
CEPT is the only Rural Planning college in our country where 74% of the population lives in rural settings. We have a comprehensive rural development plan for our area. There is intervention from IIT Kanpur too in our program.

3 years back when the program was conceptualised, it was designed around CSR. The act came into effect in Apr '14.

We are a group of youth from a rural area with a NGO of our own and who believe we can do something for our area and country.

Just the technical know how, resources and human resource was missing. However since the CSR act came into effect, our belief has been strengthened.

Our plan encompasses :
Rural livelihood generation through community based eco tourism.
Education
Health & hiegiene
Crafts and culture
& Environment.

Basically rural development.
I am a tourism expert we can provide world class holidays, offsites, leadership/ team-building trainings along with CSR activities.

Even though we want some corporates to come and adopt 3-4 villages clusters but we're not looking at philanthropy. We want corporate HR, funding and resources all to work with our communities in developmental work in our small cluster which can eventually become a model for the whole district.

We have a lot of details for anyone who is interested in the betterment of our nation and its people.
Do feel free to write / call pushirawat@gmail.com / +91 783 00 111 80 if you think the CSR policies of your company allows you to work with rural communities in Uttarakhand Himalayas.

Pardon me for my inability to express myself more clearly. But if you let me present our ideas you will be able to see that with the help from rural planners we have been able to put everything in pretty good format.

Thanks for going through.

Dear Bhavna

Its nice to here that you are planning to do CSR activity and am very great full to given you some innovative ideas.
CSR activity should not be some thing that you are suppose to do and you are doing.

Its not about providing fish to the person its should be how you teach him fish, so let it be a sustainable project.
let it be some thing related to your process, some thing close to what your organisation are into.

For example: if you are some IT company and if your planing of providing health check up of providing food to them, it is going to be out of the box, you company is not really highlighted with it, and your suppose to out source many thing.
instead you can build some new software which make some changes and provide them to schools and new models for smart classes. which can be made in your organisation, and you hold the invention of it and be a model to other organisation.

Any ways that was just an example, So let the CSR also start from R & D.
if you could say me what is your organization all about, what is the process, what is the vision and mission, CSR budget allocated, and what are looking for. then it would easy for me to give you some innovative ideas.

I am Prakash from Hyderabad. We consult in the areas of CSR. We have developed our own product - Solar Powered Computer Lab - we combine energy efficient computers and solar rooftop plants for education institutions. We have already installed these facilities in some schools in Hyderabad and wish to take it forward to many rural and semi-urban areas where electricity availability is a major challenge. A 8 computer lab with a fan and a LED tube light can be run for 12 hours with one KWH rooftop solar plant. Looking for sponsors / corporate looking at new areas of CSR.
