Blend of CSR, Volunteering & Marketing like a yummy dish

Ashwidea’s blended choices gives your organisation the power to chose from a matrix of options for your social impact needs.

We like to support causes close to us. Most likely near where work or live (or lived before). This seems logical. Give back to the community you live and work . Typically, it would involve supporting a Government school, organizing a medical/blood donation camp nearby or planting trees.These initiatives serve as a solution for an urgent need which has to be resolved within a short time like a week or a month.
However, when an organisation or large group of committed individuals want to make a difference it is important to look beyond piecemeal solutions and look at long term measures which will solve multi-dimensional, complex problems.

Curate. Create. Manage

Curate

  • There are multiple activities which lakhs of NGOs are doing and all of them make sense in their own right
  • As a donor whether a corporate/foundation or an individual we give you set of chosen projects which cover most relevant issues for the society
  • And since most of these projects are already creating social impact you don’t have to worry about if these may or may not work.
  • We have over 20 Curated projects across Education, health, water Sanitation , Skill development & Environment

Create

  • Create goes one step forward, It is for you who knows what you are looking for.
  • We mean the right social impact project to invest , which may be close to your offices , which works on a specific aspect of education like teacher training , for which she you have the resources for.
  • Not every different from Mangrove one we mentioned , where in to begin with it was just a piece of land which had mangroves.
  • Our partners were clear on what they wanted it became much bigger and spread across the district.
  • When you click here you can see where the mangroves are , which of them need to be restored , it just opens up so many possibilities. To be honest we didn’t realise this when we started the discussions

Manage

  • As the word suggests we keep a track of the projects in terms of the activities, money spent, outcomes.
  • We do it through good old fashioned field work and collaboration to help donors and NGOs if project needs course correction or not.
  • We are constantly looking at “Doing More” at each project and “ What else” can we do
  • We are also working with a couple of tech partners which will help NGOs/companies manage the project better

Cause marketing

  • We help you match brand’ identity with causes
  • Brand can use its sales or customers to help raise funds for the cause
  • In Kind support to the causes
  • Even raise awareness through its multiple channels

Volunteering

  • This can be part of the above Projects
  • Strategic Pro-bono activities which match employee skills with requirements
