The Union Budget of India has doubled fund allocation for the MSME sector serving the Rural and semi-urban communities. Still, the estimate of the needs by those familiar with these communities far exceeds such an admirable goal. This is where private-public enterprises can amplify and accelerate the development of Sustainable projects.
One such channel is the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) incentives given to the Commercial Corporate sector in one of the most strategic plans in the world for Social Upliftment. After several years of experimentation with this massive scheme of Social impact funding, India is revising the CSR rules, significantly affecting the contributions that the Indian diaspora can make to serve their motherland.
WHEELS has assembled some leaders with subject matter expertise in a speaker’s panel to exchange ideas with a global audience and promote another connecting channel for funding social projects to the last webinar’s theme of capital market’s entry into Social Impact Investment.
Upon registration, you may send your questions in advance to email@example.com. The webinar will also be broadcast on Facebook and other social media platforms. Attendees will also be able to post their questions during the webinar. You can join the webinar 15 min early (i.e. 09:15 AM ET OR 06:45 PM IST) to watch the slide show on WGF activities and related project videos. Past webinars have stressed the importance of collaboration among NGOs to scale operations and increase the impact. For more information visit: www.wheelsglobal.org
