Challenges
• Convergence of different initiative coming at one place is the
biggest challenge because the expectations from the corporate is to
contribute monetarily only. Where as the actual gist of the law was
to bring in the innovation or the management side of the
corporate.

• Being from the corporate the expectation is kind of a charity where


as the fundamental of the corporate is to have sustainability and
long term benefit. And for that participation of the people is
required at a great extent ensuring which is a little bit challenge.

How to concentrate on reaching the grassroots through CSR
Make partnership with local grassroots NGOs
Either corporate has that bandwidth of investing that much
on reaching the needy person or go for the local NGOs that
have a good presence in that local area in the grassroots level.
This is the best and time tested root to go for that.
