On the off chance that this objective must be acknowledged then the CSR approach of corporates must be in accordance with their states of mind towards standard business-organizations setting clear targets, undertaking potential ventures, measuring and revealing execution openly.

CSR agencies like SEED CSR help corporates to connect with the rural India in the way of CSR. The entire CSR scenario today has gone through a complete change due to the rise in the companies and the law passed for them to contribute a percentage of their profits in to CSR.

There’s more competition, and as a result several new companies have risen to find a place in the top 10 rankings of the Best Companies for CSR 2014 study. That’s just one side of the story.

CSR supporting self-help groups have grown to a great extent. Women are becoming more independent and empowered to earn their livelihood with the help of their skills. This helps them contribute better in their daily needs for their families too.
