Corporate Social Responsibility

Helping through your Business

Companies play a very important role in people’s lives, not only by generating employment and wealth, but as community development mobilizers. Hence, companies should not only have an economic role, but a social and environmental one as well.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an active and voluntary contribution of businesses to social, economic and environmental improvement. A set of practices, strategies and business management systems come under this concept, all of them seeking a new balance between the economic, social and environmental realms.


Fundación Asha-Kiran has created a Corporate Social Responsibility Fund with the aim of helping you exercise this social responsibility. In addition, fighting social inequality:

  • Improves the corporate image of your company.
  • Promotes loyalty from your customers, employees and shareholders.
  • Increases cohesion and motivation among your employees.

Any interested businesses have a place in Asha-Kiran’s Corporate Social Responsibility Fund. The requirement is to have a spirit of solidarity and responsibility which will be strengthened through the Fund. This way, your company, together with Asha-Kiran and other members of the Fund, will help implement health, social and educational projects in India, and make society aware of the living conditions of the beneficiaries. In order to attain both objectives, companies will participate in the Fund with an annual contribution of their choice, or in one of the ways below.

The donated amount is entitled to a 35% corporate tax deduction.
