“Be the Change that you want to see in the World.” – Margaret Mead
Too often in life, we wait around for someone else to instigate the changes we want to see. We doubt our own ability and become paralyzed to action, thinking either we are not solely capable of bringing the changes about, or that someone else will get around to it. But this inability to act alone is all in our head. Because history bears witness that the most extraordinary things were done by the most ordinary people.
Real and long-lasting change can only be ushered in when all of us come together to make it possible. Inclination towards social responsibility and contribution to sustainable development is fast becoming the mark of distinction for leading corporate and top brands. Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuous commitment of a corporate body to improve community well-being through discretionary business practices and ethical contributions of corporate resources. Integrating social, environmental and ethical responsibilities into the governance of businesses ensures their long term success, competitiveness and sustainability. CSR initiatives facilitate corporate to build a dominant brand that reverberates with their key stakeholders— Customers, Employees, Government and General public. More than 50% of the total beneficiaries in the Program were girls. Education of girls gets priority by bringing about an attitudinal change in the parents' outlook towards their education. 4170 school drop-outs resumed education under bridge Course, to facilitate their mainstreaming into formal educational institutions. So if we have ever wished to be able to do something for the greater good, the time could not be more right. We don’t have to make radical changes for our efforts to count, because the small changes make a big difference. Contribute today!
Atharv Welfare Society believes that unless members of the civil society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. We encourage and invite volunteers to be an active part of our organization and share the same vision and purpose as us – to work for the welfare of children and their families. Volunteers are the backbone of every organization – they not only carry the organization’s ideals within them, but also spread the message far and beyond, sensitizing the society towards the cause. At Atharv “Real Work, Real Change” is our ethos. Working on the ground to bring sustainable change is not easy, but in our country where more than half of the population is deprived even of its basic needs, this is where we must start. Before we debate on human rights, we must address urgent human needs. And this is what ATHARV has been tirelessly striving to achieve. Through intensive programmes based on education, healthcare, livelihood and women empowerment, we work towards bringing positive and long lasting change in the lives of citizen of our country. People – committed, passionate individuals have always been at the core of all we do. Currently, we have a team of over 500 full-time professionals & a strong team of more than 10000 volunteers from diverse backgrounds working across India at our projects and offices. If you wish to be a part of the change process at the grassroots, and are willing to build a career in the development sector through professional value creation, we will be happy to hear from you.
