Many NGOs and organizations for social change have flourished in India in the last couple of years. Whilst many are doing noteworthy work, quite a few have struggled to make it past the red-tapism in the government, lost steam and died a natural death in the process. To top it up, considering the lack of transparency in transactions in our country, donations and sponsorships too are not easy to monitor and receive. There’s a lot that is going wrong but there’s also a lot that is going right and can go beyond when it comes to attaching ourselves to a humanitarian purpose as a society of thoughtful people.
In spite of the hurdles mentioned above, there are a few NGOs in our country that are making a substantial social impact in the community, one of them being the R.K. Foundation from Bangalore. A registered public charitable trust established in the memory of late Sri. R. Krishnan & Smt. Ponnammal with a view to help the needy, the foundation tries to create a bridge between people and non-governmental organizations involved in services relating to health care and human services. To begin with, the foundation concentrates on work in their home state- Karnataka. Gradually the foundation aims to become a part of the local resources mobilization network in various service minded institutions like hospitals, vocational training institutions and others to promote efficient & effective giving.
Through its social responsibility wing, Pigen has partnered with R.K. Foundation to reach out to the under-privileged.
