There was a time when the development and corporate sector functioned in a mutually exclusive manner. In fact, even till date, many times, these sectors find each other as adversaries. The changing milieu, however, is encouraging them to come to the same table. The business regulations in India have already created a platform for NGOs to play a part by recommending the implementation of CSR projects through NGOs and development sector agencies.


In this context, it is essential that NGOs understand the CSR landscape, in India. The contours of what can be called a ‘New-age relationship’ needs to shaped and carved carefully. A partnership that is based on factors as diverse as- historical records, thematic priorities, geographic preferences, resource utilization, management information system/s, financial management and the convergence of economic benefits with social returns in the long run- requires deep understanding of both sectors’ vision and values.


The objectives of the training workshop will be to:

  • Help NGOs build their capacities for CSR partnership with corporates

  • Help NGOs  carry out self-assessments of their funding resources and help them identify their core strengths to create a shared value for sustainability

  • Create an enabling environment for strategic CSR and social innovation
