Pradip Burman – Is he just a business man?

in Delhi by

In this depleting quality of life and environmental damage, there are still some men who refuse to quit. There are men who never cease in the effort to make the world a better place. Amidst all of hushes, Pradip Burman is that man who never stopped trying. For those who are not aware of his role, here’s a brief introduction to the business personality. Hailing from the Dabur family, Dabur always remained in the list of his primary responsibilities. Other than that he founded the Ayurvet Ltd which focuses on Ayurveda cures. Pradip Burman is also the founder Chairman of Sustainable Development Society (Sundesh). This is the CSR initiative and the cause is supported by Dabur. The initiative focuses on the social development of the rural sector. He is also the Chairman of the Mobius Foundation which is currently working with the Aakar Project.

Pradip Burman’s Sundesh Integrated Rural Upliftment Centre

With his initiative of Sundesh Integrated Rural Upliftment Centre, computer literacy centres are launched. One of the most recent initiatives is the #GimmeHealthyChicken. Numerous ongoing examinations affirm the utilization of antibiotics in poultry to support development. Be that as it may, one should be prepared to handle the issue head-on. When we consume the anti-biotic bound chicken it makes our body impervious to the antibiotics when we really require it to battle an infection. The undertaking is to make individuals mindful of hurtful impacts of the use of Antibiotics in the chicken.

Apart from this, there are several sources that confirm his extended hands over the protection of the earth and its resources and ensure a cleaner and greener Earth for all. Sources say that the best part of this man is his involvement in all these programs on a personal level as that’s the way he believes is the best way to bring a positive change.

‘SUNDESH’ completes 25 years of unstinted service to the Nation

in Delhi by

‘Sundesh’, a Dabur India’s CSR initiative recently completed unparalleled 25 years of fulfilling social commitments and services.

‘Sundesh’ has progressed rapidly since its inception in 1993 (Nov). From its humble beginning while operating out of a small office in Sahibabad, Sundesh’s operations today cover three states — Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. Today, SUNDESH has 73 dedicated resources working on various community service initiatives across these three states. Over the years, they have built a comprehensive community development programme — after detailed discussions with the community members to identify the need gaps — to support initiatives in the field of Healthcare, Education, Livelihood Promotion Programs and Financial Literacy & Inclusion not only in the rural areas but in urban areas as well.

Under the dynamic leadership of its Founding Chairman Mr. Pradip Burman, Sundesh has been working with an objective of development of rural areas where in the team of ‘Sundesh’ has initiated social development programmes that integrates various aspects like health, literacy, employment and empowerment to let people take control of their lives. Their initiatives have led to rendering voice to the most deprived and unheard sections of the society such as women, children, the illiterates and the unemployed.

While the team of ‘Sundesh’ has been able to make a difference, below are mentioned few of the achievements it has been able to make on its path of fulfilling social commitments:-

  • For promoting health and care, they operate in 12 adopted villages providing medical services and conducting mass awareness drives in collaboration with the Chunni Lal Medical Trust.

 

  • For encouraging formal and non-formal education, especially for children who have dropped out of school as well as ones who have never been to school, Sundesh provides the assistance and opportunity to take up formal education.

They provide education to children between 6-14 years of age by holding classes at village centers and encourage them to seek formal education. Sundesh puts a smile on the face of those who have never studied or are drop outs from formal schooling as they could not afford the school fees. Finally these children are linked with formal schools to continue their education.

Not restricting themselves to needy children, they also work for promotion of adult literacy and have opened 2 teaching centers since they believe in not just the future but also the present

 

  • In order to popularise income generating activities to help communities find means of livelihood that suit their skills, Sundesh has established vocational training facilities for skills like cutting and tailoring, bee-keeping, mushroom farming and food preservation.
  • In order to boost self-reliance, they encourage people to form cooperatives and self-help groups that can ultimately take care of the community’s needs. There are presently twenty five such Self-help groups of economically weak families and groups formed by members of lower and middle-income families.

SUNDESH has been awarded several CSR recognitions from local-national bodies and media for its continued contributions to social responsibility over the years. The Society was awarded the Aaj Tak Care Award for their environment initiatives in 2012, and selected for the Amity Global Business School CSR Award for efforts towards Poverty Alleviation. These recognitions have has further motivated to put greater enthusiasm into social responsibility and has helped in realizing their ever growing responsibilities to this great nation and its people.

At Sundesh the aim is not to provide charity, but to enable deprived communities. So that they have the resources to lead a better life and ultimately be a dynamic and resourceful arm of mainstream society

As quoted by our Founder Chairman Mr. Pradip Burman ‘A beginning has been made, but there are still miles to go’, ‘Sundesh’ will continue to serve and play its role in the upliftment of the rural and the urban poor and help in building a new ‘India’

Around 50 such entrepreneurs had come together in Delhi and distributed clothes, toys & toiletries to the Bal Sahyog, located in Connaught Place, Delhi.

 

Around 1,500 young entrepreneurs, who run a successful direct selling business with QNET, have pledged between INR 50,000 to INR 1 lakh per city towards important causes benefiting a local community in need. This is the fourth year that these entrepreneurs have initiated such an exercise during the festival season to reinforce their commitment to helping communities and their own belief in the spirit of giving.

 

Funds raised by the group this year will be used to help orphanages, homes for the disabled and the elderly, and for the education as well as provision of essential commodities and educational tools such as stationery and books.

Giving back to our community during this auspicious festival season is our way of paying it forward”.

QNET’s underlying philosophy of RYTHM – Raise Yourself To Help Mankind is the force that drives a lot of what we do. It is a reflection of our business, which is about empowering people to take control of their lives, so that they can, in turn, help empower their communities. After all, there is no better feeling than doing well while you are doing good”.

QNET had also contributed significantly towards the Swachh Bharat Swachh Vidyalaya campaign by partnering with the Lions Club in Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad on a number of projects including clean drinking water, nutrition education and health camps for children.
