An inspiring Social Entrepreneur & an astute Business Leader, Dr. Huzaifa Khorakiwala will be delivering a passionate talk on CSR in Pharma Industry – A Case Study
India, historically, has lacked on social givings. We are a country where giving is mainly done for religious purposes. You ask someone to donate to any temple, church, or mosque, they will happily do so. But the same cannot be said about social givings. Many NGOs depend on Corporate . Statistics show in the UK, more than 80% of households give away to charities. In India, it is a mere 1%, feel social experts. Hence, organisations working in the voluntary sector are left with less choice but to depend on corporates.
