Seema Jairath

Director

Ever since her childhood she has been a spiritual person with a concern for the society. So, after an initial four and half year stint at The Indian Express, she decided to work for a social cause, joining the development sector which was a rather obvious choice. She had lost her father to a long battle with cancer; and thus, she joined Global Cancer Concern in 2000 with the urge to give back to the society. Life followed and the desire to reach out to larger societal groups and varied beneficiary communities gave her reasons to work with numerous NGOs from across the sectors such as childcare, sanitation, housing, livelihood, environment and health to name a few. Over her 17 years of working in the development sector

She had lost her father to a long battle with cancer; and thus, she joined Global Cancer Concern in 2000 with the urge to give back to the society. Life followed and the desire to reach out to larger societal groups and varied beneficiary communities gave her reasons to work with numerous NGOs from across the sectors such as childcare, sanitation, housing, livelihood, environment and health to name a few. Over her 17 years of working in the development sector, she has worked for numerous European, US and other international NGOs and managed to have Partnership from across industries such as Dell, ONGC, Indian Oil, Coal India, Barmer Lawrie & Co, HPCL, Federal- Mogul, Oberoi Group, Taj Group, Air India, Indigo Airlines, United Airlines and so on. The vast experience of dealing with global & grassroots NGOs as well as multinational corporate giants gave her an insight into the inter-relation between these two crucial, yet opposite stakeholders of the development sector. After analysing the dynamics of NGOs & Corporate India in terms of present status of sectoral interventions, across many geographies and Corporate India's desire to help communities at large, it was felt that there is a genuine need for a social consulting firm to help NGOs & Corporate India to ensure inclusive growth with sustainable development for poor masses across various geographies  Her long years of work experience in the development sector has shown that there is a need to bridge the gap between NGOs and Corporate to ensure large scale poverty reduction & social development through sustainable models.  Currently, most of dedicated NGOs are grappling to offer time bound solution for community led sustainable development model. They need support for capacity building on aspects of program designing, team management and system development, whereas Corporate India is struggling with issues of finding efficient partners & timely implementation of CSR projects for offering model solutions to various issues which needs intervention. This aforesaid gap has led to genesis of "The Bridge". The Bridge would strive to become enabler for NGOs and Corporate India by adding value in their present endeavours of CSR programs. It is the need of the society. The founder wants to see both Corporate and NGOs working in tandem to transform the society in more responsive and transparent manner. She wishes that the Corporate look at CSR, as a strategic opportunity to get involved in governance of the country to have long term benefits, whereas NGOs should look at it as increased opportunities for system development and resource mobilisation leading to widespread transformation in lives of millions of poor families. They should jointly co-create and aim to replicate sustainable and scalable model.
