India Cares, a friend to CSOs, supports Civil Society Organisations (CSO/NGOs) in developing their skills to raise awareness about their work, communicate their transparency and impact on the society - thus motivating individuals, companies and groups to be involved in the cause. "Having spent over a dozen years in the social sector, the dedication of CSOs to serve the community is not fading, there are younger people wanting to get involved in bringing about change. The enthusiasm and drive of individuals working for various causes, despite the tough demands and conditions in our society is the driving factor for India Cares. The board and the team come together to get the best possible support and impact to help small and medium organisations across the country. Annually, 250+ CSOs associate with us, we want to double this number at the earliest, do join us in lending a hand to strengthen the social sector in building a society we all wish to live in," said Meena Dave, CEO, India Cares.
