The case for CSR funds in educationRecently, the Railway Ministry has made a good initiative to seek some funds from the Corporate Sector in specific areas of Railway Operations. This has to be appreciated.
However, a lot more can be done by the Corporate Sector. Why not education? Most of the Government schools are without basic facilities like rest rooms. Why not involve the Corporate Sector in contributing to such causes? In Tamil Nadu, some initiative has been taken. It remains to be seen what will really happen.
Yet, this kind of initiative has to happen throughout the country. The very poor children who study in Government schools need our support. The society can also chip in with whatever money we can, once the Corporate Organizations,come out with their own specific proposals.
What do members think about this?
