India is on the verge of becoming the next super power of the world. It is a diverse nation, home to people from across the religious spectrum, host to people of multiple faiths; and in this nation of extremes, a stark and marked difference among the rich and the poor is apparent. On one hand there is a plethora of wealth, and on the other, people struggle for a meal a day. There are various aspects to this, and many a time nature plays a role towards it as well. The farming community bears the print of this anomaly, despite the governments various schemes to come to the assistance of those suffering from poverty. Many a time it has been observed that various schemes designed by the government do not reach the beneficiaries and the affected people fall back further in circumstance. There was an identified need to bring these concerns to the fore, and act upon them, hence, Vatslya Samajik Sanstha was conceptualised.
Our culture, our society which has provided us with the right tools and capability, and it becomes our duty to give back to society. When such a thought prevails, organisations like Vatslya Samajik Sanstha are born. “These are my Children and their suffering must be alleviated ” with this thought in mind, Vatslya Samajik Sanstha was created on February 8th 2016, and continues to work tirelessly towards their aim of helping the poor, the needy, the destitute.
It starts by standing with the poor, listening to voices unheard, and recognizing potential where others see despair.
It demands investing as a means, not an end, daring to go where markets have failed and aid has fallen short. It makes capital work for us, not control us.
It thrives on moral imagination: the humility to see the world as it is, and the audacity to imagine the world as it could be. It’s having the ambition to learn at the edge, the wisdom to admit failure, and the courage to start again.
It requires patience and kindness, resilience and grit: a hard -edged hope. It’s leadership that rejects complacency, breaks through bureaucracy, and challenges corruption. Doing what’s right, not what’s easy.
Acumen: it’s the radical idea of creating hope in a cynical world. Changing the way the world
tackles poverty and building a world based on dignity .
