The Rosy Blue Foundation has now become a registered NGO with United Ways Trust and the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon. Please find Rosy Blue Foundation’s registration page and details here: http://www.unitedwaymumbai.org/ngo423_rosybluefoundation.htm.
The Rosy Blue Foundation has been associated with a number of projects and associations. Most recently, we have been involved with SUPPORT, an NGO that looks to eradicate substance abuse in street children, and attempts to rehabilitate them. They have recently constructed a complex for street children outside Mumbai, in Saphale, in a project that our foundation has contributed towards.
We have also partnered with the Anarde Foundation in Palanpur, Gujarat in their attempts at bettering the condition of widowed women and helping them taking control of their lives again. In the same region, we have also been involved with RRM Trust’s activities at Sanali Ashram, as well as the Palanpur Vidyamandir.
During the floods in Uttarakhand, Rosy Blue had its own fund-raising event and sought to raise money that was eventually used in the ‘Save Children’ campaign.
Beyond this, as part of the larger Rosy Blue Alliance, Rosy Blue has been a part of the UN Global Compact Communication on Progress, and has promised to uphold “responsible leadership” in a move that was the first of its kind within the diamond industry. This initiative looks at sustainability, and Rosy Blue is actively aware of its importance while carrying out its business activities. Beyond this, Rosy Blue has been further associated with the UN in contributing towards its Millennium Development Goals, specifically universal education, promoting gender equality, and global partnership. We have been deeply interested in the issue of Children’s Rights, believing that children are a very important group of stakeholders, and have constantly attempted to improve their condition world over.
