NEW DELHI: With less than 0.001 percent CSR spending in north eastern states, Centre is in process of preparing a road map for companies to invest in states especially in areas of child welfare and education.   

To take it forward, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has reached out to government of eight northeastern states and corporate houses with a motive to gain a clear understanding about spending CSR funds for Welfare of children in states.

A convention was also organized to provide a platform to build understanding between the NGOs, corporate houses and welfare schemes of State Governments, which can be leveraged through CSR activities. It was attended by Priyank Kanoongo, Member, NCPCR.

According to NCPCR, the idea is to come up with a road map for companies to invest for child welfare and wellbeing initiatives in various states.

The state government representatives of the eight northeast states have specified areas where they require assistance of the CSRs of Corporate Houses. Similar, the corporate houses have made their presentations about their focus of work and basic requirements to work together with the Government bodies and NGOs.
