An empowered society, which works towards giving every child the right to lead a full and enriched life.
CSA was started in 2002. Vipul Jain, CEO, Kale Consultants ltd., had himself adopted and was consequently, exposed to the concept of adoption.Catalysts for Social Action’s (CSA) journey began in September 2002, as a Not-For-Profit organization dedicated to the cause of child welfare and rehabilitation for children living in orphanages. As part of optimal child rehabilitation, CSA facilitates Adoptions in the country; we work with existing adoption agencies in rural areas to facilitate the quality, speed and number of adoptions in India. We have successfully facilitated over 230+ adoptions in India, so far. We believe that Adoption is the best form of child rehabilitation and our intention is to ensure that every adoptable child should find a home. For many children, adoption is not possible and they grow up in a Child Care Institution. We believe that every such child should have a healthy and wholesome environment and be supported all the way till they become confident and independent individuals. With this objective, we support a number of child care institutions in the areas of Infrastructure support, Health & Hygiene, Nutrition, Education and Vocational skills activities. CSA not only cares but also goes beyond, thus, enabling children to be self-sufficient and become contributing members of society. We have made a valuable difference to 2800+ children across 55+ child care institutions in 4 states that we support.
Sidney started his career in the travel and transportation industry and has over 22 years of Corporate and BPO experience. He gave up his corporate position to pursue his passion and take up an assignment in the social sector. He has been actively involved with Catalysts for Social Action (CSA) over the last 3.5 years. According to him Children from orphanages do not get opportunities to enjoy childhood our aim is to provide opportunities to such a children so that they also have wonderful experience to remember.
