In the current legislative and policy regime, companies are increasingly being mandated to take social responsibilities as a means of delivering value. This requires that they work in partnership with credible & efficient civil society organizations. In the changing milieu, NGOs need enhanced credibility & visibility among donors, improved organizational & programmatic practices and sustained fund-raising possibilities. To address this need and taking forward our agenda to promote & enhance credibility and competence of the voluntary sector, we have strengthened our NGO Validation & Due Diligence support. In order to add clarity to the scope of support we wish to offer, our validation unit is now renamed as "NGO Validation & Partnerships".
