Training programs on ”Corporate Social Responsibility: Building Connections between Enterprises and NGOs”

SIG developed a 4-day training program for enterprises and NGOs entitled “The Corporate Social Responsibility: Building Connections between Enterprises & NGOs”

This program has three distinct training sessions:

  1. Enterprises to better understand the value of CSR, develop effective CSR initiatives as a core business strategy, and build connections with NGOs
  2. NGOs to learn how to partner with enterprises to increase their capacity, sustainability, and drive their mission
  3. Corporate Citizen Networking Event to brainstorm new CSR initiatives and discussing potential enterprise/NGO partnership

Each training session is highly interactive incorporating practical exercises, real life examples, and small group activities. Following the training sessions, all enterprise and NGO participants put their new knowledge and skills into action during the Corporate Citizenship Networking Event.
