NGO need to convince companies that they need the money


The Toyota Group has donated a sum of Rs 3 million to 20 non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working in the social Wednesday at its headquarters at Riche-Terre. Last year, the company had given Rs 1 million to NGOs.

“Toyota has always helped for the well-being of the community, whether in the field of education, environmental protection or women’s issues, health, particularly HIV and diabetes and sports in general. We note, by the relation they send us, these NGOs are doing a good use of our contribution, “said Arvind Issur, director of Toyota. He adds, ” NGOs should be consistent with government policy to be able to convince companies that they deserve the money.” He believes that these NGOs are doing their best to achieve the objectives of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) for the benefit of disadvantaged and vulnerable people in society.

NGOs that have received financial support from Toyota this year are: Sponsor a Child, Friends In Hope, Wood Soap, PILS, Family Action, Mauritian Wildlife Foundation (MWF), APSA, Teens in Control Panel Zanfan La Butte Movement Civic Baie du Tombeau, PAWS, Land of Peace Youth Association Maladaptive of Curepipe, Ti Diams, CEDEM 7 Mauritius Handball Association, Alzheimer’s Association, Mauritius Council of Youth Leaders and Jacques Cantin Talking Books Association.
