In the last decade, 5 major emerging economics came together to form an Association, which became popular with the acronym BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Since its inception, it is widely considered that the high growth rates and the demographic dividend of these countries can put the Association in a leadership position. Particularly, the sustainable development projects accomplished by the Government of India can help in achieving the desired economic goals set by BRICS.
Recently, SEARCH Foundation, a national level digital philanthropy platform has also become an esteemed member of the BRICS Chamber of Commerce & Industry. Quite interestingly, the key focus areas of BRICS, which include Digital Economy, Rural and Affordable Health Care and Social Development etc., also find resonance in the mission of SEARCH Foundation. In fact, The Foundation is actively involved in raising funds and donations to numerous duly verified and audited non-governmental organisations, with a view to ensure rapid socio-economic growth of the people living at the grass-root level.
BRICS Chamber appointed Dr. Dhiraj Kr. Singh, Managing Director GRC India (P) Ltd, as a Co-Convenor of CSR Vertical (Environment Domain) to carry out Environment & Social Development activities of the Chamber.
