Lack of sensitivity and awareness, societal conditions, general apathy is some of the factors that increase vulnerability and the risks associated with the spread of HIV.  Mahesh Foundation has been engaged in addressing the needs of vulnerable groups with community participation at all levels.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has acquired new dimensions in the recent years. Today, companies are proactively taking up this good hearted investment and giving a social value to all their business endeavors.

In India, though corporate have a strong will to dedicate their resources for a social cause, they find it difficult to reach the right people considering the demography and diverse social problems of the country.

Partnerships can play a role in enhancing the quality of a company’s CSR policies. Corporations  have  been switching  their  CSR  focus  from  charitable  donations  to  actually  becoming  involved  in community activities. Many companies have found that such involvement is best undertaken through working with local NGOs. Environmental & Social issues are an area where partnerships have been very successful.

In many instances, corporate managers find NGOs have the capacity to propose innovative ways to solves social problems that are useful to their company.  Because  of  their  experience working  with  community  organizations  and  villages,  NGOs  are  better  trusted  among  local populations,  so  that  they  may  serve  as  a  bridge  between  business  partners  and  the communities in which corporations wish to be active.
