Introduction

ISR (Individual Social Responsibility)

Social responsibility is an ethical framework and suggests that an entity, be it an organization or individual, has an obligation to act for the benefit of society at large. Social responsibility is a duty every individual has to perform so as to maintain a balance between the economy and the ecosystems.

Being Socially Responsible means that people and organizations must behave ethically and with sensitivity toward social, cultural, economic and environmental issues. Striving for social responsibility helps individuals, organizations and governments have a positive impact on development, business and society with a positive contribution to bottom-line results

How Does an Individual Become Socially Responsible?

The Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation (WCIF), Bulgaria, describes ISR in its position statement on Social Responsibility as,

“The individual social responsibility includes the engagement of each person towards the community where he lives, which can be expressed as an interest towards what’s happening in the community, as well as in the active participation in the solving of some of the local problems. Under community we understand the village, the small town or the residential complex in the big city, where lives every one of us. Each community lives its own life that undergoes a process of development all the time. And every one of us could take part in that development in different ways, for example by taking part in cleaning of the street on which he lives, by taking part in organization of an event, connected with the history of the town or the village or by rendering social services to children without parents or elderly people.

Social Responsibility can be “negative,” in that it is a responsibility to refrain from acting (resistance stance) or it can be “positive,” meaning there is a responsibility to act (proactive stance). Being socially responsible not only requires participating in socially responsible activities like recycling, volunteering and mentoring, but to actually make it a lifestyle. Only through a commitment to embrace and embed social responsibility into your personal value and belief system can you truly become socially responsible in all you do.

Smile Foundation is a non-profit organization based in New Delhi, India. Head office in New Delhi .It was established in 2002 and has a presence in 25 Indian states.

Smile Foundation believes that education is both the means as well as the end to a better life: the means because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues - from health care to appropriate social behavior to understanding one's rights - and in the process help him/her evolve as a better citizen. Education is the most effective tool which helps children build a strong foundation; enabling them to free themselves from the vicious cycle of ignorance, poverty and disease.

Smile Foundation realized that Education for Children cannot be achieved without the family, particularly, unless the mother is assured of health care and empowered. Moreover, when an elder sibling is educated and relevantly skilled to be employable and begins earning, the journey of empowerment continues beyond the present generation.

Smile Foundation extended its thematic areas of intervention by supporting family health, livelihood, and women empowerment. Children, their families and the community become the target group for Smile Foundation's activities as child education cannot be done in isolation and nothing else but education for children can bring long lasting change in the society.

Sustainability, social equality and the environment are now business problems. And corporate leaders can't depend on governments to solve them

- Peter Senge, Founder, Society for Organizational Learning

Inspired by Senge's philosophy, a group of young corporate professionals set up Smile Foundation to work with grassroots initiatives for effecting positive changes in the lives of underprivileged children, their families and communities.

Children are the future of a nation. For an emerging country like India, development of underprivileged children holds the key to the progress of the nation itself, and their education is the cornerstone of this progress. But education for children cannot be achieved without ensuring the welfare of the family a child can go to school regularly only when the family, particularly the mother is healthy and empowered; the family has decent livelihood opportunities and a steady income.

Realizing this, Smile Foundation, beginning in the corridors of education, has adopted a lifecycle approach with intensive program focused on family health, livelihood and women empowerment, which address the needs of children, their families and the larger community.

Addressing the areas of education of children, healthcare to the poor, livelihood for the youth and empowerment for women, Smile Foundation has evolved as an Education NGO, Livelihood NGO, Medical NGO, as well as NGO for Women Empowerment.

The Following are some different sectors in which Smile Foundation is working.

Education

Education is a national level program of Smile Foundation, which is committed to providing basic education and healthcare to underprivileged children. Smile Foundation believes that whether you are addressing healthcare, poverty, population control, unemployment or human rights, there's no better place to start than in the corridors of education.

Education is both the means as well as the end to a better life; means, because it empowers an individual to earn his/her livelihood and the end because it increases one's awareness on a range of issues from healthcare to appropriate social behavior to understanding one's rights, and in the process evolve as a better citizen.

Smile Foundation’s educational initiatives include Pre-school [3-6 years], Non Formal Education [6-14 years non-school going], Remedial Education [6-14

P a g e

years school going] and Bridge Course [14-18 years drop-outs]. It works for education for needy children who are under difficult circumstances, such as child labor, children of poorest of the parents, children inflicted and affected with HIV/AIDS, street and runaway children, children with rare disabilities, disaster struck children and slum children. Special emphasis is given on girl education and women education, so that they and their families get empowered.

Since its inception in 2002, more than 200,000 children have directly befitted from the Mission Education program.

Girl Child and Women Empowerment

Swabhiman

Various studies, as well as our experience, have shown that when we help women and empower them, the whole society benefits. Their families are healthier, children go to school, income levels improve and communities become more prosperous. But unfortunately in India, far from being empowered, most women are denied even their basic rights like health, education, employment and a respectable status in society.

According to UNDP Human Development Report (2009), 88% of pregnant women (age 15-49) were found to be suffering from anemia. India has a dangerously imbalanced sex ratio, the chief reason being female infanticides and sex-selective abortions. According to UNICEF’s “State of the World’s Children-2009” report, 47% of India's women aged 20–24 were married before the legal age of 18.

Swabhiman, meaning self-respect in English, was initiated in 2005 to address these challenges through a simple yet effective approach. Functioning as an NGO for women, Smile Foundation has strategically formulated the program me to save the girl child, empower poor and support women empowerment. The program me is specifically aimed at realization of both individual and collective self-esteem and inner strength for marginalize and socially excluded women and adolescent girls through innovative community practices.

A tailor-made strategy called the ‘4 S Model’ has been developed under Swabhiman. The ‘4 S Model’ is an acronym for four novel approaches, namely Seeking Healthcare as a Behavior, Support for Education, Supporters in Men through Male Involvement, and Sustaining the Change in Communities.

The program identifies adolescent girls and women from the community and develops them into Change Agents, who in turn actively contribute to the community mobilization process.

Livelihood

The youth comprises over one-third of the Indian population which in turn constitutes a major part of the labour force of the country. But according to the reports of the Financial Express “Only 15%of the young graduates passing out of colleges are employable; the rest are branded ‘unemployable’.”

It is not their lack of theoretical knowledge that causes this. Instead, it is the lack of right skills and attitude. There is thus, an increasing concern among the leading employers of the country, about the dearth of ready-to-deliver employees. In addition, the macro perspective affirms that, it is crucial for such young energy to be channelized correctly in economic growth and nation building to elude their addition to family woes, social stress and national misery.

Smile Twin E- learning Program (STEP) is such an initiative of Smile Foundation that aims at creating a pool of young and independent people, from the marginalized section, through skill enhancement in tandem with market requirements. It is an effort towards bridging the gap between demand and supply of skilled manpower in the fast emerging services and retail sectors of modern India.

This national level program trains the urban underprivileged adolescent youth in English Proficiency, Basic Computer Education and Soft Skills for enhancing their prospects of employment in the fast expanding retail, hospitality and BPO sectors.

So far, more than 22,600 youth have been trained and 14,500 have been placed in over 150 brands through 91 operational projects across India.

Smile Health Camps

Smile On Wheels

“He who has health has hope; and he who has hope has everything.” – Arabic proverb

India has made rapid strides in the health sector since independence. However, various eye opening data from NFHS clearly indicate that access to healthcare still remains a challenge.

While the health statistics of rural India continue to be poor, the health status and access to health for the poor in urban slum dwellers has surfaced to be equally deplorable. Despite accounting for 1/4th of the country’s poor population, urban areas have less than 4% of government primary health care facilities.

Urban slum dwellers suffer from adverse health conditions owing to mainly two reasons first the lack of education and thus lack of awareness; and second the unwillingness to lose a day’s wage in order to reach the nearest medical facility. Health for underprivileged, which is a desperate need, thus remains unaddressed. As a result, cases of poor women health, malnourishment in children and deaths from preventable diseases from such areas are always high.

The neglect in even the simplest preventive medical treatment usually leads to a more serious ailment and eventually into deaths. The need of the hour is thus a two pronged approach first to bring quality health care services to doorsteps of the needy and second to promote healthcare awareness and contemporary health care seeking behavior among the underprivileged.

In such a scenario a mobile health care services delivery system is the most practical mechanism. And in subscription to this view, Smile Foundation has initiated the Smile on Wheels program. This is a unique mobile hospital program that seeks to address problems of mobility, accessibility and availability of primary health care with a special focus on children and women,

Smile Health Camps

Even after decades of freedom, India is struggling to provide basic health services to its people. According to government sources, in India 45 children die every hour due to respiratory infections. 1 child dies every 2 minutes due to diarrhoea. And annually, about 2 million children under 5 years of age die due to preventable diseases.

The situation calls for timely care and diagnosis which can reduce the incidence of morbidity and mortality especially among children and women.

Smile Health Camps is one such special initiative of Smile Foundation to provide healthcare services to meet the immediate health care needs of the marginalized community in remote rural areas and slums through standalone camps. Customized health camps are organized extensively across the country offering comprehensive health services curative, preventive, promotive and referral, to a large number of people in selected intervention areas.

Multi-disciplinary projects include gynaecological, paediatric, ophthalmology and surgical services etc., whereas other interventions can be general in nature. Duration of Smile Health Camps vary between one day and 15 days with frequencies ranging between a month and a year.

The uniqueness of the model lies in its comprehensive approach where health promotion and prevention are given equal importance while curative care is administered.

Many organizations and institutions like Canara Bank, Crompton Greaves, Jain Conference, Blackrock, Surf Excel, Rotary Club of Delhi South, Hindalco Industries Ltd., Lafarge India Pvt. Ltd., AIIMS & Red Cross Society, Association of Obstetrics and Gynecology Delhi, Lifeline Hospital, St. Martha Hospital, Vinayak Hospital, Fullerton and Ajay Memorial Foundation have associated with Smile Foundation to conduct Smile Health Camps successfully.

Special Support Programs

Smile Foundation constantly strives to support and empower individuals, particularly underprivileged children enabling them to meet basic ambitions of their life and realize their potential, make informed choices, resist oppression, fight for rightful existence and facilitate new possibilities and opportunities for them.

The Foundation takes up individual cases based on their immediate needs. These individuals are then given educational support, in individual capacity, who are at risk of discontinuing their studies due to impoverished circumstances and have exhibited outstanding academic record. Individuals suffering from any critical diseases are provided support for their health; specific cases are also taken for rehabilitation wherein they are given educational support, vocational training, entrepreneurship training, counseling and provision for aids and appliances.

Support for education and health is also provided to recognize those children who have performed outstanding deeds of bravery and selfless sacrifices including bravery award winners. There are over 4,200 individual children who have been supported through this program.

Disaster Response

Being a disaster-prone country, India is highly vulnerable to various types of natural calamities due to its geographical positioning. According to the National Disaster Management Authority, Govt. of India, more than 58.6% of the country’s landmass is prone to earthquakes and over 12% is prone to floods; close to 5,700kms out of the 7,516kms long coastline is prone to cyclones and tsunamis; while 68% of its cultivable area is prone to droughts.

Disaster risks in India are further compounded by increasing vulnerabilities related to changing demographics, socio-economic conditions, unplanned urbanization, development within high-risk zones, environmental degradation, climate change, and epidemics and pandemics. All these factors have created a situation where disasters seriously threaten the sustainable development of the country, besides innumerable lives and livelihoods.

Smile Foundation, with its welfare interventions focused on children and their families, responds to the call of humanity in times of such calamities under its Disaster Response program. From the Kashmir earthquake in 2005 to the Uttarakhand floods in 2013, Smile Foundation has acted promptly to reach out and respond to the immediate needs of the disaster affected people, while also maintaining a sustainable approach to help them rebuild their lives by facilitating their education, healthcare and livelihood.

Some of the calamities during which Smile Foundation has initiated disaster response are the Tsunami, the Kashmir Earthquake, the Maharashtra floods, the Bihar floods and the Uttarakhand floods.

Action for Children

Action for Children (AFC) is a global programme focusing on initiatives aimed at improving the welfare of children by scaling up the brand and fundraising of grassroots organisations. The programme was initiated in 2008 by Together4Change alliance, a consortium of four international organisations Wilde Ganzen (Wild Geese), Wereldkinderen (NICWO), SOS kinderdorpen (SOS Children's Villages) and Investing in Children and their Societies (ICS) supported by Dutch government.

Together4Change alliance is based on the concept of Civic Driven Change and gives the highest priority to change being achieved by people and society themselves. For its programme, Action for Children, organisations with a similar ideology were selected from five developing economies, namely India, Brazil, South Africa, Ghana and Kenya. Smile Foundation is the implementing partner for the programme in India.

Action for Children, being carried out by Wilde Ganzen, is based on the belief that the responsibility of social development lies not only with the government, but also requires equal participation from the privileged masses.

Smile Foundation implemented the first phase of the programme (MFS I) between 2008 and 2011. The programme is now in its second phase (MFS II) and extends till 2015.

Child for child

Children are the future of a nation. They are the best change agents, be it in the family or the community in which they live. It is therefore crucial to catch them young and inculcate in them feelings of empathy and conscience so that they grow up as responsible individuals.

Sensing this need, Smile Foundation came up with Child For Child (CFC) programme in 2006. Sensitization of privileged children and their parents, towards the existing inequalities around them, is an important objective of CFC.

Privileged children are sensitized about the deprivation and pain endured by their less privileged counterparts. CFC seeks to inculcate a conscience and value system in the children so that they grow up to become responsible citizens and change makers. Before their minds are set with age, the CFC programme tries to make them count their own blessings and understand the plight of less privileged ones. Once they start realizing the worth of the privileges they are born with, they automatically turn their thoughts towards positivity and develop the right outlook. This eventually helps them develop into not only successful but responsible individuals in life. They grow up to become significant change makers, who contribute positively to the society.

Under Child For Child programme, Smile Foundation visits various schools and conducts engaging sessions for the young minds. It sensitizes children towards various causes and let them realize their privileged status.

CFC currently reaches out to nearly one million privileged children in 900 schools spread across 417 districts of India, every year. In addition, their parents and teachers are also involved in the process. The programme has today reached out to each part of India with the exception of Lakshadweep.

Smile Foundation brings “Change Beats” to India

“Change Beats” program is a musical way to provide a platform for bridging the gap between privileged and underprivileged children on a global scale. The five days workshop achieved its objective of Indian, Tanzanian and Dutch kids together making two songs about shared chances and dreams of children worldwide.

New Delhi , 6 April, 2010: In an effort to bridge the gap between people from developed and under-developed world and bring them closer, Smile Foundation launched an exchange programme related to music (instrumental and vocal both) called 'Change Beats' for India. Smile Foundation has been chosen to host a musical workshop for young musicians from the Netherlands, Tanzania and India to produce three songs as part of the Change Beats project 2010. The initiator for the project is the Dutch collaboration of five development organizations called Change for Children.

Music is a very effective tool of communication and touches many hearts despite differences in language and geography. Priti Kalra, Senior Manager, Smile Foundation said, ‘Change Beats’ is yet another attempt to change the mindsets and perception of youngsters living in developed world about their counterparts living in other parts of the world with the help of music.” During the workshop, the children from The Netherlands, Tanzania and India have together mixed music samples and beats from both the countries to create a powerful new musical statement for bridging the gap and spreading brotherhood across the world, she further informed.

Noortje Bergmans, Communications Head, Change For Children, said:”It’s beautiful to see the cooperation between the children from different countries and backgrounds. They all speak the same language and that is the language of music. Through that they get to know each other and respect each other and can spread this feeling to all children throughout the world”.

As part of the workshop, seventeen talented young (age group of 13-22) musicians, rappers and singers from the three countries in three different continents were selected after auditioning for the project -Change Beats. The intention is to increase awareness and generate necessary action regarding rights for children around the world. Together the youngsters will make music video

album consisting of two songs during their stay in India. The team consisting of underprivileged and privileged children, music production personnel from the three countries wrote lyrics and produced the video clips during the 5 days workshop.

After the necessary post production activities people worldwide can watch them online and also vote for the best theme. The winning song we will be handed over to a VIP to raise awareness for equal chances for children and youngsters all over the world.

The songs will be a showcase of learning within the group of children a depiction of what are the various chances that can be explored for children worldwide for betterment of their life and realize their dreams.

Change Beats - dreams of children Music definitely touches life and moves people to do things for underprivileged children. The 21-year-old lead singer Chanel Dankerlui form the Netherlands who got associated with Change Beats 2009, said “Change Beats has changed my life as when I visited Tanzania last year for Change Beats, I came to understand that there is a huge need for the development of underprivileged children. Tanzanians are really talented as they make great music with little resources available with them. I look forward to further strengthen my association with Change Beats "

Marvin, the 17 year old rapper form the Netherlands is very excited about his visit to India and wants to work with musicians from different cultures across the world: Marvin said, “It is very nice to know new people and play music together and create a song, I want to spread the message of “equal opportunities for all” through the music I play and Change Beats has given me a platform for this endeavour of mine.”

Deo from Tanzania is part of a street kids project himself and got a new chance in his life. He shares his experience and music in Change Beats. “ I was very shocked to see street kids in India, as Iknow there circumstances. It seems that these problems occur all over the world. But good things are shared as well and I’m glad to work together with all the kids here and spread the message to all the kids worldwide”.

Mission Education

What is Mission Education?

17.7 million children in India are currently out of school.

25 million children are at risk of acute hunger.

1 in 4 school going children have dropped out of school.

73% of girls do not get past 10 years of school.

33 million children in India are engaged in child labour.

When we think of childhood, we instantly go back to the happy, carefree days when school was our second home and homework was the biggest trouble we had in our lives morning assembly, lunch break, games period, making paper boats, walking back home with friends, mom making us ready in spotless uniform, we ruining the uniform by end of school every day, punishments, the list goes on.

While our fondest childhood memories comprise of the many little things we did in school, 17.7 million children in India are yet to experience this joy. Working in hazardous conditions, living on the street, braving hunger, poverty and violence, childhood means something very different for these children.

Smile Foundation's Mission Education is an effort to bring these out-of-school children under the fold of education. In addition to this, we also look after their health, nutrition, and provide them relevant exposure through co-curricular activities.

Last year, 21,346 children across 21 states of India were directly provided education under the initiative. This year, foundation aims to provide education to 25,000 children through Mission Education.

Working Model

Smile Foundation has evolved two working models namely, Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP) and Outreach. Depending on the necessity and circumstances, either of the models is deployed.

Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP)

Outreach

Social Venture Philanthropy

Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP) is an innovative model based on the business concept of venture capital. Under SVP, Smile Foundation not only identifies & implements its development projects through credible CBO's (Community Based Organization) but also, handholds and builds capacities of these organizations, focusing on achieving scalability and sustainability, creating a culture of leadership and excellence and inculcating a deep sense of accountability among them.

Outreach

Social Venture Philanthropy (SVP) is an innovative model based on the business concept of venture capital. Under SVP, Smile While working in the remote rural areas, Smile Foundation realized that many a times capacities of community based organizations (CBOs) were not adequate to meet the high expectations of large corporate social investors. Under Outreach model, Smile Foundation implements the development interventions directly as it requires intensive and professional engagement for a wider and sustained outcome.

Smile Foundation gets a first-hand experience in the nuances of development at the grassroots through its Outreach model and then implements the learning in its SVP Projects through its SVP Partners.

Tanzania.Smile Foundation, in collaboration with Mission Outdoors

a team of hard core adventure professionals with decades of

experience, has a series of these high altitude treks for people like you and your colleagues, unraveling various levels of excitement and thrills.

The idea here clearly is to smash the routine existence that most of us get attuned to, and do something really wild and mind blowing for a change.Having said that, there’s another reason to really sweat it out there. You will be doing this to support the education and healthcare of thousands of underprivileged children in India.

It might sound impossible, but it’s a fact that as you have a whale of a time and go back with loads of exhilarating memories after a few days of these treks, you’d actually be gifting a lot of underprivileged children a brighter future.

All in all, ‘Challenge for Change’ guarantees you a unique experience along these trails, as well as offers you a wonderful opportunity to spread smiles among these innocent children…simply by taking part in a trek of your choice!

Smile Foundation believes that unless members of the civil society are involved proactively in the process of development, sustainable change will not happen. Following this model of Civic Driven Change, Smile Foundation sensitizes and engages the civil society, making it an active partner in all its welfare initiatives.

Today, 8 million children in India are out of school surrounded by poverty, illness and despair; they are fighting a daily battle for their survival. Together, we can bring hope in their lives. Together, we can bring change and make it last.

Corporate Partnerships (CSR)

The very foundation of Smile was laid on the realization of a group of young corporate professionals that it was their Social Responsibility to give back to the society. In partnership with many corporate bigwigs, it has brought a sea of change in the lives of more than 300,000 less privileged children and youth across 25 states of the country through more than 158 welfare projects.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has acquired new dimensions in the recent years. Today, companies are proactively taking up this good hearted investment and giving a social value to all their business endeavours.

In India, though corporate have a strong will to dedicate their resources for a social cause, they find it difficult to reach the right people considering the demography and diverse social problems of the country.

Smile Foundation is one such catalyst that works towards the needs of development while helping corporate in investing in social initiatives. With multiple modes of partnerships like Payroll Giving, Cause Related Marketing, Direct Child Support and Youth Support, Smile helps corporate in strengthening their CSR programs by letting them adopt, initiate or partner development projects.

In other words, Smile Foundation devises ways for its partners in which they can help and make a difference.
