Fundraising is one of the most important pieces of the organisational jigsaw. Without the necessary financial ability, doing what we do in the scale that is required, becomes nearly impossible. Thankfully, there are those who stand by us in our hour of need.
While charity in India has primarily been through monetary contributions, during the last year, volunteering of individuals has seen a sharp rise. Our donors are at the heart of everything we do and their dedicated involvement enables us to reach out and provide both long-term and emergency assistance to the people who need it the most.
Indian private sector has an important role to play in addressing development issues in India. We envision a future where markets do not discriminate against people based on caste, class or gender. By being more inclusive, sustainable and responsible, the private sector can ensure equitable growth. Oxfam India takes the Corporate Social Responsibility in positive stride and considers it a vital step for strengthening the Corporate - NGO ecosystem.
