Our Philosophy

  • We prefer to align our mission with Business Social Responsibility rather than just Corporate Social Responsibility. It’s outside in, rather than inside out.
  • With over three decades of significant social expertise and experience, our solutions are not only client centered, but also cover the impact on communities, stakeholders and society at large.
  • We use a positive human psychology approach in all our services and programs. Our approach is participatory, inclusive and community driven.

Our philosphy

  • ANDRE GINGRAS, CO-FOUNDER OF BALA VIKASA

    In this fast changing world of globalization, emerging countries and social medias, “Business as usual” is a “non-starter”. It is true for the Civil Society; it is also true for the Corporate and Business community.

  • PHILANTHROPIST & BUSINESS STRATEGIST, NAVEEN JAIN

    True philanthropy requires a disruptive mindset, innovative thinking and a philosophy driven by entrepreneurial insights and creative opportunities.

  • BILL DRAYTON, FOUNDER OF ASHOKA CHANGEMAKERS

    Social entrepreneurs are not content just to give a fish or teach how to fish. They will not rest until they have revolutionized the fishing industry.

  • ENTREPRENEUR AND FOUNDER OF INFOSYS, DR.NARAYANA MURTHY

    Entrepreneurship is about creating jobs and wealth with ideas. It is about transforming the world with your new products and new ideas. It is, therefore, about courage. It is about making the possibly impossible happen.
