Interview with Children Toy Foundation (CTF)

Posted by BHARTI on June 23, 2015 at 5:30 AM Comments comments (7)

Interview with Children Toy Foundation (CTF)

Children Toy Foundation (CTF) is a Mumbai-based Non Government Organisation, established in 1982 by Devendra Desai that aims to educate children for acquiring real skills, beyond reading and writing, developing positive attitude and to instill a sense of pride in them.

The concept Children Toy Foundation is to

• To educate children through Play, beyond reading and writing, so as to help them acquire real skill and develop positive attitudes in their life.

• To instill a sense of Pride within the young ones and further boost their confidence and hone their latent talents using potential force of toys and games.

• Also to see that through play they learn virtues like sportsman spirit, discipline, patience, honesty, truth and learn to accept defeat gracefully and develop the spirit of cooperative competitiveness.

 

Q: How did you get the idea of Toy library?

A: History is that first library in India was established in 1966 at Delhi by Share Your Toys Foundation. The 2nd library was Chacha Nehru Toy Library, (CNTL) in Mumbai which came up in 1967. I saw CNTL in early 1982. I had volunteered for six months and then decided to start my own toy library

Q:When was the first toy library formed?

A: As said, after being with CNTL I was inspired to start one. I established Children Toy Foundation on October 2, 1982. However I was quite naïve then and honestly had no idea about registration process and legalities. Also I did not anticipate it to become a (big) NGO as such. I had to struggle for funds and finally our first library was launched on 1st January 1984. We called it ‘Khilona Ghar’ then at Prarthana Samaj, Mumbai. Later, I registered Children Toy Foundation with Charity Commissioner in 1986. Interestingly this was reported at that time as well in Vritachitra, a program telecasted by Door Darshan.

Q: Since then you are running the Toy library ?

A: Yes..CTF is instrumental in helping and guiding to setup 298 toy/game libraries covering 11 states and 2 territories since then.

Q: What are your other projects?

A: Besides guiding similar minded NGOs and other aspirants to set up toy/game libraries CTF has two play centers called ‘Khelvigyan’ static projects at Mumbai and Baroda

We have 4 mobile play vans called as LAFF vans (Let’s All have Fun Frolic). We have named them as Nanha Munna Express, LAFF van, LAFF Excel and Toy express. These vans are plying in Mumbai and Allahabad covering 32 municipal schools and 20 village schools helping to propagate the toy library project. Most of these Vans visit 5 hospitals pediatric wards to amuse children with stories, puppets , toys and games.During vacations or when schools are closed we take summer camps. We conduct inter school, inter corporate, inter college Mind and Fun games contest namely Beyond Games and Play for Peace.

Q: Are you associated with any schools and / or NGO’s?

A: We cover 33 Municipal schools in Mumbai and Baroda and 20 village schools at Allahabad. Also we invite elite schools for inter school contests. We go to Mumbai Mobile Crèche centers in holidays regularly since 2000. We have helped to set up toy/game libraries to Sunbeam, Door step School, Humanity Foundation, Hamara Foundation, Aniket Children home, Swadhar-Pune, Each one Teach One, Yuva, Helpers Of The Handicapped, Kolhapur, Shantraba school, institute like IL & FS, Arlabs, Excel Industries, Vidyarambam Trust Chennai, Rotary clubs, Innner wheel clubs, Lions Clubs, Giants Groups etc.

Q: Are you planning any new project?

A: Yes, we are planning and in fact working on our project called Game of36: Connect India

Q: What is Game of 36: Connect India?

A: let me explain Game of 36. We are planning to donate 36 mobile Toy vans across country in 36 states and territories involving 36 corporate which could be inaugurated by 35 CMS. The one at Delhi could be inaugurated by our Prime Minister.

Q: Would it be for Guinness Book of World Records?

A: I don’t know. It could be.. Jokes apart, as you know we are already covered in ‘The Limca Book of Records 1998’ under Human Story - (page no. 49). But I don’t work for records.

Q: What are your plans for future?

A: We want to establish more mobile vans and village toy/game libraries. We also want to research, develop and revive old games. We are also looking forward to develop a diploma course on how to conduct toy/game libraries. Also once we achieve Game of 36: Connect India, we plan for Interstate contest, national level contests in Mind & Fun games could also take place. We wish to make it for SAARC countries could also participate and idea can further grow into International Olympics in mind and fun games for children. Basically the idea was acknowledged & acclaimed in 1993, world conference jointly hosted by International Toy Library Association(ITLA) and International Association for Child Right to Play(IPA) at Melbourne, Australia.

The Agenda is to reach out to children as fast as possible and to generate jobs for educators/teachers and also to boost Toy Industries in India, as after the vans we intend to set up libraries in villages also. Generally we use 36 as a figure to show diversity but this 36 figure will be a magic figure uniting India.

Q: How do plan to arrange the funds? Has any corporate appreciated the project?

A: As of now we are speaking to many people around us. It is working on word of mouth with some corporate and most of them are lauding it. We are very optimistic about the participation as under 2% CSR spending plan corporate can adopt one/more projects.

Q: What are the benefits to the corporate? Does it get any Tax benefits?

A: Yes it does. Recently National Committee for Social and Economic Welfare, Dept of revenue, Government of India has approved our project under section 35 AC of IT Act and now 100% tax exemption is available to the tune of 5.84 crores. If we meet this target soon, which we can hope for the expansion can be granted to the required extent.

Coca-Cola Unveils Its Grandest Targets Ever

The tenth annual Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability report, released recently by Coca-Cola Enterprises has outlined the Company’s most ambitious project to date. This includes focusing on issues pertaining to the environment, well-being and employability of the people connected to CCE as well as feedback from its stakeholders.

· Reducing the carbon footprints of its business by up to fifty percent.

· Ensuring that 40 percent of the PET utilized is recycled or made of renewable materials.

· Assisting in developing the skills and learning requirements of 250,000 youngsters, each year.

With the increased awareness regarding calorie intake and obesity prevalent among people today, CCE has placed itin a winning position with its strategy to reduce its calorie content significantly. Also, by the year 2020 the Company hopes to have reached its target of motivating three million people, to be physically active.

The newly released report highlights CCE’s significant achievements which include a substantial increase in the use of recycled PET – specifically one third of the total PET usage. Also highlighted is the twenty nine percent reduction in carbon footprints achieved since 2007.

Expressing satisfaction at the progress of its sustainability journey over the past ten years, CCE stated it remained committed towards accomplishing its new responsibilities involving social and environmental issues to uphold consumers’ interests along with its newly formed objectives. CCE further stated that its new commitments are a result of the feedback provided by the Company’s stakeholders. This feedback helped in the formulation of goals that are more challenging, especially in the areas of carbon and well-being.

ICAI issues norms for

CSR accounting

by cos.

The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India ( ICAI) recently issued a guidance note which will help India Inc in accounting for its corporate social responsibility (CSR)expenses.

 

To ensure transparent financial reporting, this guidance note requires the company to debit (charge) its profit and loss account (P&L a/c) with the CSR expenses incurred by it during the year. Further, such expenses are to be shown as a separate line item in the P&L a/c.

 

"The guidance note by calling for a debit to the P&L a/c of the CSR expenditure rightly puts to rest an ongoing debate as to whether such expenditure could have been adjusted as an appropriation from reserves," says Sumit Seth, partner, PriceWaterhouse.

 

Further, ICAI's guidance note has also addressed issues of a shortfall by a company in meeting with the minimum CSR expenditure criteria and also those instances where a company has spent more than the minimum requirement.

 

"ICAI's guidance note is clear and easy to implement. It has stayed with the letter and the spirit of the legal provisions. India Inc was facing many doubts in accounting for CSR expenses, as India is the first country in the world that mandates CSR expense," says Shailesh Haribhakti, group chairman, DH Consultants.

 

The legal obligation to comply with CSR norms kicked in as of April 1, 2014. Such expenses will reflect for the first time in the financial statements of India Inc as of March 31, 2015 which are currently under finalization and audit.

 

Companies meeting certain financial criteria such as a net worth, turnover or net profit of at least Rs 500 crore, Rs 1,000 crore and Rs 5 crore respectively have to comply with CSR norms. Such companies have to spend in each financial year 'at least' 2% of the average net profits made during the previous three financial years towards eligible CSR activities.

 

According to an EY report, nearly 8,000 companies are impacted by the CSR norms. Sachin Pilot, former minister of corporate affairs, under whose aegis the new Companies Act containing the CSR norms was ushered in, had said CSR spend by India Inc could aggregate to Rs 15,000-20,000 crore in a year.

 

There can be scenarios where a company spends more or less than the minimum 2% criteria. ICAI's guidance note states that the Companies Act requires the board of directors of a company to specify the reasons for not meeting with the CSR obligations. In light of this, if there is any shortfall, no provision is required to be made in the profit and loss account of the company. For instance, if the 2% criteria required a CSR spend of at least Rs 50 lakh, but the company spends only Rs 40 lakh during the year, the difference of Rs 10 lakh need not be provided in its profit and loss statement. A provision would have reduced the book profits of the company. However, the directors will be required to state in their report the reasons for such shortfall.

 

ICAI's guidance note also looks at a scenario when a company spends more than the minimum requirement. The issue in this scenario was whether the excess amount of CSR spent can be carried forward to be adjusted against amounts to be spent on CSR activities in the future. To illustrate, if a company spent Rs 60 lakh, instead of the minimum required Rs 50 lakh, could this excess Rs 10 lakh be carried forward and adjusted against next year's CSR required expenditure? ICAI's guidance note has clarified that, since "2% of the average net profits of immediately preceding three years is the 'minimum' amount which is required to be spent under section 135(5) of the Companies Act, the excess amount cannot be carried forward for any future adjustment".

 

Haribhakti adds, "The approach suggested in the guidance note of not carrying forward excess expenditure and for not providing for shortfalls in a particular year are justified. This is also the intent of the law makers to let market and peer pressure work."

 

ICAI's guidance note has also illustrated that, in some cases, the CSR expenditure could result in creation of a tangible asset — say a school building. Invariably, the future economic benefit from a 'CSR asset' would not flow to a company, thus even the expenditure towards creation of an asset should be charged to the P&L a/c (and not capitalized in the balance sheet), clarifies the guidance note.

 

If a company, as part of its CSR activities, supplies goods manufactured by it or renders services, these goods and services will also form part of the CSR expenditure and will be duly valued and charged to the company's P&L a/c.

 

According to government sources, the financial statements of a company, including notes to the accounts and the director's reports, will help keep track of the CSR spending by India Inc. Currently, there is no penalty imposed for not complying with these norms — only a disclosure is required in the director's report.

Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation

Posted by BHARTI on September 18, 2013 at 6:25 AM Comments comments (10)

Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation

(A partnership between Government, Corporate India,Academics and Civil society)

 

Industry's displeasure with the new land acquisition process isn’t stopping the rural development ministry from reaching out to them for help to counter Naxal influence. Cabinet gave its approval toset up the Bharat Rural Livelihood Foundation-- a partnership betweengovernment, corporate India, academics and civil society. 

This is the first major initiative of the government to seriously engage withcorporate India on Naxals. The foundation will work to reduce the gap betweenoutlays and outcomes, ensuring better implementation of government programmes,reduction in leakages from schemes and creating strong institutions ofgovernance at the grassroots. Despitethe strained economic situation, the Cabinet approved a government contributionof Rs 500 crore for the Foundation's corpus. In the first instance, Rs 200crore will be given and the remaining Rs 300 crore after two years. Among thecorporate bigwigs, the Tatas are understood to have signed on. 

TheFoundation will focus, at least to begin with, on blocks with tribal populationacross 170 districts in the Central Indian tribal belt-- Odisha, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra. 

"The Foundation is an essential pillar of our development strategy in Maoist--affected areas, as it is based on the premise that an effective flow of flagship government schemes is the key to rapidly upscaling the most effectiveand proven interventions of civil society organizations to tackle thedevelopment deficit in the region," rural development minister Jairam Ramesh said. For the companies, the government hopes the projects undertaken by the Foundation will give greater depth to their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts.Convergence with resources from government schemes will provide privateinvestments with greater leverage and richer partnerships with credible civil societyorganizations. Maoistor naxalite violence has become an endemic problem across the country, killingmore people each year than separatist terror. While large tracts of the hinterland remains under the control of naxals, severalcorporate groups have managed to do business in these places, some of them withthe help of goodwill earned by their CSR efforts and sometimes by payingprotection money. 


The government is hoping that initiatives such as the Bharat Livelihood Foundation will help reach out to the country's Adivasi or tribal population, which has been mostly excluded from the benefits of growth and, asa result, are vulnerable to Maoist propaganda. "Among those who have most acutely felt the sense of exclusion and alienation are theAdivasis, who perform poorly on every indicator of well-being, whether it bepoverty, health or education," said Ramesh. "What is worse, given the specific demography of Adivasi India, the pockets ofAdivasis concentration have witnessed an unprecedented upsurge in Maoistmilitancy in recent years. This is especially true of what may be described asthe Central Indian Adivasi belt."

 

Officials say the experience of the past two decades shows that some of the best innovation in improving livelihoods in thetribal areas has come from the civil society and the foundation is an effort tosupport these grassroots initiatives to empower tribals. The foundation is expected to help local people have sustainable livelihoods, haveenhanced access to and control over resources, and provide new opportunitiesfor the youth. The government is also hoping that this initiative will helpbridge development and governance deficits in these areas and boost theefficacy of its various welfare schemes. 

"The challenge is to transform systems of administration and levels of awareness at the grassroots to ensure that these well meaning pieces of legislation (Rightto information, Mahatma Gandhi NationalRural Employment Guarantee Act, and the proposed Food Security Act and MineralsAct) have the requisite impact on the ground," said Ramesh. The Bharat Livelihood Foundation's efforts will be geared to reducing the gap between outlays and outcomes, ensuring better implementation of government programmes, reduction in leakages from schemes and creating strong institutionsof governance at the grassroots. 

 

CSR Bill passedby Rajya Sabha today-Only Presidents nod required

Posted by BHARTI on September 16, 2013 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (0)


The Rajya Sabha today approved the much awaited new Companies Bill, making it mandatory for profit makingcompanies to spend on activities related to Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR). In case, a company is not doing so, it will have to explain the reasonsfor shortfall. The Bill was already passed by Lok Sabha in December last yearand now only President’s nod is required to make it a law.

The Bill, aimed at improving corporate governance, also contains provisions to strengthenregulations for corporates as well as auditing firms. Moving the bill forconsideration, Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Corporate AffairsSachin Pilot said private companies, while maximising their growth, also haveresponsibility towards society besides equitable and sustainable growth of thecountry. The changes in the Bill include provisions making it mandatory forcompanies to spend 2% of their average net profit on CSR activities. However,only companies reporting Rs 5 crore or more profits in the last three yearshave to make the CSR spend.

 

Companies failing to meet the obligation willhave to explain and disclose reasons in their annual books of account.Otherwise, companies would face action, including penalty. Pilot emphasizedthat the Bill aims to encourage firms to undertake social welfare voluntarilyinstead of imposing that through “inspector raj”. Safeguarding workmen in thelegislation, the new law mandates payment of two years’ salary to employees incompanies which wind up operations. This liability would be overriding, Pilotsaid. The amended legislation, with 470 clauses, also limits the number ofcompanies an auditor can serve to 20. It has also brought in more clarity oncriminal liability of auditors. Besides, the approved amendments also includeannual ratification of appointment of auditors for five years and introductionof a new clause related to offence of falsely inducing banks for obtainingcredit. Besides, the changed law allows more statutory powers to thegovernment’s investigative arm Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO) totackle corporate fraud.
