Children's Participation in Corporate Social Responsibility
In this report children explore corporate social responsibility (CSR) in South Asia and Latin America and its impact on families and communities.The information contained in this report was compiled through consultations with more than 150 girls and boys in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Peru, Paraguay and Venezuela ages 10–18. Children and young people were asked why the private sector should invest in children and care about their rights... Boys and girls felt that companies have responsibilities in their working and business areas to promote their image as socially responsible actors in society. Companies are doing business and gaining profits by selling their product in the community. They should therefore support community development activities such as health centers, emergency response, school and recreational facilities, environmental initiatives and training facilities for the betterment of the people, especially for the children in their own community.
