In our experience of over 15 years, we saw a gaping void in the corporate responsibility space. For any society to prosper, it is the responsibility of every privileged human being to contribute towards social upliftment. It is with this mission, we embark on our journey now. The government through its latest Companies Act has given substantive push towards community welfare by mandating corporates to engage in social action. On one hand, we see a rapid growth growth of this space, however, on the other, we observe the lack of specialized training, recognition and respect of those working in this domain.
Tat’ (everything belongs to the almighty) combines with ‘Sat’ (all actions are performed with truthfulness), to evolve as ‘Om Tat Sat’ or the ‘Absolute Truth’. It is only by transcending to the higher Self through awakening or cultivating higher consciousness can we selflessly work towards the upliftment of our society.
We, at Tatsat Foundation, believe that each initiative we conceive and implement embodies this spirit. We deliver with utmost transparency, and candor.
- We are the first organization providing CSR-specific education and certifications with our partners to aspirants and specialists alike. This will help create a brigade of qualified people who understand the space to drive meaningful programmes to create a bigger, better and brighter tomorrow.
- As enablers, our exchange platform provides access to insightful case studies, reports and research to our members– business and government entities to make thorough decisions. With this knowledge, they can channelize funds in the geographies and sectors that need most assistance. This will also help in reaching out to the unserved or underserved communities by avoiding duplication of efforts.
- Support government’s efforts by drafting needed pragmatic policies, laying new norms, and driving government schemes.
- Assist skill development measures by engaging various players and creating job opportunities
