CAF India releases report on ‘Online Giving in India’

CAF India released the first phase of its research report titled Online Giving in India on 9 September 2015 which is based on a pilot study on the online giving landscape in the country. Being the first critical effort to collect information on digital trends/practices in the

not-for-profit sector, the study primarily aimed at filling key knowledge gaps in the sector. It also set out to identify key fundraising trends, effective practices to enhance online donations, willingness to adopt these practices and audience attitudes.

Click2Clean set to convert cities into litter-free zones

We launched the Click2Clean initiative, which aims to ‘clean up’ selected unclean and littered public spaces in cities, through collective action by citizens, governments and the private sector. This community-driven campaign is initially being rolled out in Delhi-

NCR with plans for expansion. Citizens simply have to click and upload photographs of ‘unclean’ and littered public spaces, after which a screening committee will select 100 sites from all the images received and will take measures to ensure that the sites become litter-free within a given timeframe. A new page on Facebook has been created to help citizens upload images

On this occasion Meenakshi Batra, Chief Executive, CAF India said, “This award is a testimony to the efforts we have put in to provide access to sanitation

facilities, including construction and maintenance of toilets, providing hand-washing facility and creating awareness related to hygiene.’
