Kolkata Meets CSR Summit – NGOs and Corporates

Forming the First Federation of NGOs in Eastern India
ICCR Auditorium, Ho Chi Minh Sarani, Kolkata
21st - 22nd, December, 2014

Mission: Rebuilding India

Changing Lives Foundation (www.clf.org.in), is leading the creation of a federation of about 50 NGOs from across Eastern India. For creation of an effective federation, CLF (www.clf.org.in) is organising the first of its kind ‘Kolkata Meets CSR Summit- NGOs and Corporates’. The aim is to “Rebuild India” by also strengthening the ailing NGO sector.

CLF is the first NGO in India that envisions the prospects of NGO-Community-Corporate Partnership models, the 21st century vision of PPP Models for sustainable development. NCCP models have the potential to internalise social challenges with the inclusion of NGOs and community stakeholders. Consequently, it is common man's guess on how CSR can revolutionize the use of NCCP models for a more balanced growth across the world.

The NGOs and Corporates shall have an opportunity to meet, interact and exchange dialogues on opportunities of investments in CSR projects. The Conference shall facilitate these interactions for bringing about more efficiency, productivity and transparency among NGOs so that they are capable of understanding and meeting the expectations of the Business world. It is intended to implement larger and more productive projects in Education, Health, Livelihood, Women Empowerment and Environment to promote economic development in the Eastern India.
