NEW DELHI: With the passage of Indian Companies Bill 2012 in lower house of Indian Parliament, the country is abuzz with optimism and confusion simultaneously. While broadly the new provisions have been welcomed, the bill in its current shape raises lots of questions.
At this turning point “CSR Reborn” comes in with some answers and postulations. I gained several insights editing the book. Three of the industry captains in CSR and Corporate Sustainability have also lavished praise on the book (see the back cover). The contributors to this book have decades of experience in the development and CSR sector, hence the praise does not appear out of place.
The book has been published by SAFRG, which is a not-for-profit think tank on philanthropy and CSR working in Asia since 1989. The book is officially being released at 24th South Asian International Workshop on Fundraising and CSR, which is being held from August 1-3, 2013 at Awesome Farms, Faridabad-Sohna Road, New Delhi NCR. This is a gathering of varied audience from more than 10 countries across Asia, Australia, Africa and North America and hence an apt platform for unveiling the book (more details on www.safrg.org).
Annually, the South Asian Fundraising Group holds a Workshop for professionals across the social sector in our region. Attracting organizations, donors, and independent consultants and Institutions from Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Afghanistan, Mauritius and beyond, SAFRG strives to provide ‘best in class’ training and activities on CSR, fundraising, communications, organizational development and other issues of particular importance for South Asian NGOs.
This platform is an engaging combination of plenary speakers, workshops, master classes, and thematic forums. The 24th South Asian Annual International Workshop is scheduled from August 1-3, 2013 at The Awesome Farms & Resorts, Faridabad-Sohna Road, Pakhal, NCR, India.
