IDAN assists NGOs on CSR projects

A two-day capacity-building training programme for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Compliance and Project Management organised by Investment & Development Authority of Nagaland (IDAN) was held from March 23 and 24 at Capital Convention Centre, Kohima.
According to a DIPR report, at the programme, joint secretary, IDAN Reny Wilfred spoke on the importance of CSR projects with a special focus on the north eastern states and Nagaland.
He said that this two-day capacity building on CSR was a first of its kind in Nagaland and that during the interactive session, the objective would be to understand the aspirations of the Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) for the development of Nagaland and to deliver productive projects to the society. Wilfred said the training should be able to convert problems into solutions, and apprised that IDAN would be providing all the tools and techniques to ensure that the NGOs and participants would be able to deliver.
He also assured that IDAN would assist and make sure there is a CSR team available to support the NGOs every time to address all the queries.
CSR Manager, IDAN, Chichanbeni Kithan said that this capacity-building event is focused on NGOs and CSR, adding that NGOs play a critical role in addressing and promoting sustainable development, environmental challenges, and social welfare.
Kithan said that NGOs have a wealth of knowledge and expertise that could help companies understand the local context and identify the most pressing needs.
However, she lamented that NGOs were often restricted by resource constraints which severely limit their ability to achieve their objectives.
In order to effectively carry out the missions, Kithan said NGOs require resources and partnerships with other stakeholders and that was where CSR comes in.
She mentioned that, in recent years, CSR has emerged as an increasingly important concept in the business world as through CSR initiatives, businesses/corporations could provide financial, technical, and other resources to support the work of the NGOs.
Earlier, the new capacity building center was also virtually inaugurated by the special guest, Reny Wilfred, Joint Secretary IDAN.
