People may differ drastically in the ways they own physical wealth and assets. However, it is said that every person is equal in terms of time available in its bank. Everyone has only 24 hours available in a day – nothing less and nothing more. This makes it possible for every person – irrespective of his / her financial status – to contribute equally with time.
Whether it's a weekly activity or something that you can do on a regular basis, contributing with your time for well-being of society is good all round. As well as making a positive contribution to the happiness of others, it's a great way to meet people, get the most out of your local area and to increase your own happiness and well-being.
Choose an activity / project that is close to your heart and undertake it in your local area with only ONE HOUR every week. Let it be associated with children, elderly, women, environment, hygiene, education, health or any other field where you feel your time, energy and skills can contribute.
It is a proven fact that we get as much out of time contribution as the people we are giving our time to. Giving to others through our active involvement and in other ways has been associated with reduced depression and anxiety and increased personal wellbeing, satisfaction and happiness.
“Ekla Chalo” (Start alone on your journey): Every important journey begins with “ONE”. It is only through perseverance and faith in one’s own cause that people join and become “MANY”.
We would like to begin this project with our own team members and slowly expand it to our personal and business associates and partners.
Without restricting people to any particular cause, the aim is to create enough awareness in the minds of people to contribute with their spare time for the welfare of society.
Let us begin with 1 Person contributing one hour per week = 52 hours in a year.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) is an activity that enables companies to contribute positively to the society besides continuing with their commercial business activities. For larger companies with Turnover exceeding a certain limit / Net worth over a certain limit / Net profit over a certain limit, CSR is mandatory and a statutory obligation. However, for smaller companies CSR remains a voluntary activity.
Most corporate CSR initiatives strive to positively contribute to the public, the economy or the environment. As its CSR focus, Ceeco considers its responsibility to spread positivity around people by taking part in certain initiatives which are for the betterment of the society. As part of CSR, we are trying to be socially conscious on various platforms which will provide us with an opportunity to do our bit for the society.
By working on these programs, we will be able to develop new ideas or gain knowledge about undertaking social causes and contribute in society’s welfare. It will be our endeavour to voluntarily involve all members of Ceeco team in this effort so that they can collectively and individually become better citizens and contribute not only economically but socially too in India’s growth.
We at Ceeco fully subscribe to the saying that “what matters is the willingness to do something for the society and not the size of initiative”.
