We are living in times where the gap between the haves & the have-nots has increased drastically; where the marginalized communities still find themselves standing on the fringes of development and where we see the underprivileged not being able to exploit the opportunities created for them simply because they aren’t aware. This is where the civil society or the Third sector steps in and tries to shake the system to stimulate it into action. This sector is working at the grassroot level to make however small an impact on society, environment & our lifestyles, hoping that it snowballs into something that would be beneficial for the society now & in the future.
Here we aren’t talking about those who believe in using activism & protestations ninety percent of the time. We are talking about the silent revolutionaries who bring in their expertise and their ability to galvanize talent and work towards development. So what if the development is less visible in the metros, it’s the places far-off that need them and they are the ones reaping the benefits. They are working within the boundaries and regulations set up by the government, with minimal funds, a very limited manpower that’s driven by passion & not money, and yet they have managed to make a mark that has touched lives around them. They are in the fields of education, social service, water conservation, environment protection, woman empowerment, child welfare, anti-corruption and any social issue that dots our civil society.
