SUPPORTS AND PARTNERS

“If every business house undertakes corporate social responsibility and decides to invest certain percentage of their profit in developing rural areas, India will have no hunger, no disease, no illiteracy. The Government alone can’t do this. NGOs and business organisations will have to come together to transform India and to bridge the gap between rural and urban India”
