India is the first country in the world to mandate Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Today we define Corporate Social Responsibility as the way a company balances it’s economic, social and environmental objectives while addressing client expectations and enhancing their value.
In recent years, CSR has become a fundamental business practice and has gained much attention from the management of large international companies. They understand that a strong CSR program is an essential element in achieving good business practices and effective leadership.
CLEAN-India is an acronym which stands for Community Led Environment Action Network. Like the name suggests, it is a platform for green crusaders to connect with each other to Act, create Awareness and Assess. This is where you can let your voice be heard by those who shape our lives… A space where you can interact with NGOs, Local Urban Bodies, Policy Makers and like-minded enthusiasts to ideate and strive towards creating sustainable cities…A space where you create new trends for promoting a healthy, environment friendly way of life.
Being inspired by the “Clean India” initiative by Sir Narendra Modi, we at GLocal Mind decided to contribute towards the society, by helping School Children lead a happy and healthy life. In order to do this, the first step taken by us is the Construction of washrooms in a government school located in a small village named VEERAPURA in Karnataka. This led to a better environment at the school providing students as well as teachers with a hygienic and well equipped washroom.
