Revolutions by nature are sudden and dramatic but this one is different. It has crept up quietly, over two decades, and has left in its wake dignity, prosperity and hope.
A Silent Revolution tells the story of the Srinivasan Services Trust. What started out as the charity wing of a well-known business group quickly transformed into something quite different, evolving into a model of community development that is self-sustaining and empowering. Today, SST has helped transform thousands of Indian villages and touched millions of lives. It is a model that is easy to replicate.
This book comes at a time when Corporate Social Responsibility has the potential to help create a new India. It illustrates just how a pioneering, well-organised programme can change lives for the better.
