Agents for change

PRIVATE corporate philanthropy groups play a major role in acting as an active agent of change in developed countries.

Vodafone Amalgamated Telecom Holdings executive officer Ambalika Devi said the roles played by the corporate groups were important in connecting the government and non-governmental organisations.

"Corporate groups consist of people who deal with the local people at the grassroots level and know the conditions on the ground," said Ms Devi.

"They are well aware of the people out there and their basic needs.

"In our work with these corporate groups, we have been able to get monetary and technical support which is very important in assisting the people at the grassroots level.

"In other developed countries, these corporate groups are the missing link between government and NGOs as they normally deal with communities in their everyday work," said Ms Devi.
