Give India recently launched the “First Givers Club” initiative with 50+ HNI families seriously inclined towards giving in Delhi/NCR. An inaugural summit was held on Aug 23rd evening at The Oberoi providing an interactive, outcome-oriented knowledge exchange platform.
The sessions featured philanthropists presenting their personal engagement experiences and NGO leaders sharing their interesting models of work.
IIMPACT was one of the three NGO leaders invited to participate in this event. On this occasion Nirmala Tandon, IIMPACT’s CEO, effectively emphasised in her address the following points about the IIMPACT model:
-100% of donor funds go directly towards the education program
– IIMPACTs reach into the most backward and remote geographies
– IIMPACT’s sustainability- the local communities are gradually handed over the responsibility of running the learning centres.
– Its continuous close connect with the girls beyond their IIMPACT years, providing them guidance and support as they move up the ladder of higher education.
Mr Ajay Relan, Managing Partner- CX Partners and a philanthropist and one of IIMPACT’s important donors spoke at length about his reasons for selecting IIMPACT as the organisation he chose to support over the years. He shared his IIMPACT journey with all those present.
Mr. Rakesh Bharti Mittal was the keynote speaker at the event. Ms. Anu Aga (Chairperson, Thermax) and Mr. Amit Chandra (MD, Bain Capital) were the key speakers at the summit.
