Our Manifesto

Our Causes

In 2016, CRISIL RE launched a social impact incubator, CRISIL RE Change the Scene. The objective ─ design solutions to resolve problems rooted in communities. The campaign entails a rigorous selection of projects conceptualized by employees in partnership with local NGOs catering to specific needs and problems, with defined community outreach and impact goals. The 2016 edition of the programme saw 16 projects across three cities focusing on women’s empowerment, environment conservation, education and integrated rural development selected for funding and implementation.

Change The Scene 2018

The third edition of Change the Scene saw 11 projects incubated to test and demonstrate proof of concepts for environment conservation, women’s empowerment, livelihood enhancement, and disability inclusion. This year, to focus on impact, CRISIL Foundation collaborated with Collective Good Foundation. The lead NGO, in association with partner NGOs shared existing problem statements requiring immediate attention in communities. The projects, selected after rigourous evaluation of proposed solutions for social impact and scalability, were implemented across Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Gurugram, Mumbai, and Pune.
