The Shiv Nadar Foundation is a strong believer of “Creative Philanthropy”. The most common approach to philanthropy has been to identify gaps and address them through time-bound, project-based, large-scale initiatives. This is the corrective route. Governments, corporate and several foundations globally have been following this approach and working in the areas of education, health, environment, among others. The most common approach is towards correcting social ills through strategic intervention initiatives.
