Dr Vinay Sahsrabuddhe is Vice Chairperson at Indian Social Responsibility Network (ISRN).
Globalization and rapid economic development have had a deep impact on the social, economic, political and cultural fabric in India. On one hand where it gave tremendous benefits to Indian society in terms of global participation and involvement on the other it created another section of society who could not adequately enjoy the benefits. Hence ISRN was established to provide a common platform to synergize the various machineries of society- the corporate, the NGOs and the government to establish as a network to ensure inclusive and sustainable growth.
The birth of this forum was a result of deliberations among professionals from diverse disciplines, sectors and backgrounds who have had a vision and mission to channelize all agencies which aim to provide services to the society, to reach larger numbers and greater areas with the assistance of each other with utmost efficiency.
The vision of this forum is to see India attain the status of a developed country, in true sense of the term by rightfully enabling the community, to bridge up disparities that were caused as a result of uneven distribution, implementation and reach of programs and resources. The forum thus, would provide a platform to various players to build their capacities, strategies and skills with each other's assistance and support.
