India: CredAble – India’s largest working capital tech platform, is thrilled to launch a new initiative, I.M.P.A.C.T. – Important to Act, a CSR & Sustainability enterprise of the brand. The initiative is aligned with the company’s vision to create an ecosystem and provide numerous opportunities for people at CredAble to come together to identify and act towards social causes and participate in various sustainability initiatives.
Embracing this ideology, CredAble has associated with RAHI – Rise Against Hunger India to unveil the first leg of the programme to eradicate hunger in India. As part of the association, the company has volunteered to pack 20,000 meals in Mumbai and Noida, with the help of 150 + volunteers.
Excited to speak about the launch of the initiative, Nirav Choksi, CEO and Co-Founder, CredAble, said, “At CredAble, we are committed to creating a better tomorrow. CSR & sustainability initiatives have been core to our company’s values and an integral part of everything we have done in the past years. Along with powering the growth journey of businesses big and small, we are on a mission to give back to the socio-economically backward communities in society and back projects that create a greener future by building innovative sustainable solutions for the environment. In our continuous endeavours to bring greater change to the community, we’re extremely delighted to join forces with RAHI and launch I.M.P.A.C.T.— Important to Act, a CSR and sustainability initiative of CredAble.”
RAHI envisages a world without hunger and, in line with UN Sustainable Goal 2, aims to end hunger by 2030. This is accomplished through a hands-on meal packaging programme that provides volunteers with the opportunity to package dehydrated, high-protein, nutritious meals. Over the last five years, CredAble has enabled liquidity for several small, midsized and large corporates across India Inc. and will continue to revolutionise the world of working capital financing. Its culture statement defines the organisation’s beliefs and is centred around what they value the most when it comes to people’s behaviours. These cultural statements reinforce the company’s larger goals and feed into the everyday work life of their people.
Addressing the initiative and the much-valued association with CredAble, Dola Mohapatra Executive Director, Rise Against Hunger India, said, “Rise Against Hunger India is a non-governmental organisation that works with a vision of a world without hunger. The mission of the organisation is to nourish lives, empower communities, respond to emergencies and grow the movement towards ending hunger. Since operations were started in 2015, more than 23 million meals have been served to the hungry in 19 States of India. Rise Against Hunger India carries out a volunteer engagement program where volunteers come together to package highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprising rice, dal (lentils) & vegetables, fortified with micronutrients and minerals. Rise Against Hunger India is thankful to CredAble team for hosting two such events in Noida and Mumbai on November 17th, 2022 where 20,304 meals will be packaged by employees of CredAble.”
Since 2015, Rise Against Hunger India has served more than two crore meals with the support of over 46,000 volunteers in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Gurgaon, Noida, Patna, Aurangabad, Ahmedabad and many other locations. Each meal comprises a dry uncooked mix of rice, dal, dehydrated vegetables, and a vitamin sachet comprising 23 micronutrients and minerals.
Nearly 60 to 70 per cent of meals support education or youth development programmes and the remaining go for disaster relief, shelter for the elderly, orphanages, homes for the destitute, etc. This association aims to further build on the competitive advantage of both organisations and amplify the hunger eradication efforts carried out by both partners.
