As many of you know that India was the first country to have Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) legislation mandating companies with net worth of 5 Billion Rupees to give 2% of their net profits for last 3 years to charitable causes.
Since this legislation was passed – Vibha has been aggressively working with various Corporations in India to pick Vibha projects for their CSR cause. Thanks to the tireless efforts by some dedicated Vibha members in India – results are materializing.
Amazon India has picked 3 of Vibha’s projects – Vidyarambam, Bhagvatula Charitable Trust and Sikshana for their CSR initiative “Gift A Smile”.
The Amazon Gift A Smile Foundation has launched an initiative by which 25 NGOs with various social causes can create “wishlist” of items they need. These items range from educational toys, books, sports equipment, clothes, hygiene products and many many more. Amazon Customers can now gift towards these wishlists and make a direct impact to these Projects.
