By: Thorat, Sukhadeo
Contributor(s): Omvedt, Gail | Macwan, Martin
Publisher: Jaipur Rawat Publications 2009Description: xvi, 303 p. ISBN: 9788131602041Subject(s): Endowments | Charitie | Public welfare | Philanthropists Charitable contributionsDDC classification: 361.7632 Summary: The book unravels the approaches, strategies and methods used by different types of philanthropic organizations in addressing the problems of society. They include community-based national and international organizations, corporate sector organizations, family-based organizations and those run by the government. While it brings insights into the priorities these organizations accord, it specially looks into the question whether these organizations address the issue of social justice and support the efforts of NGOs that take up the issue of social exclusion, associated with caste, untouchability, ethnicity and gender, through projects that deal with disadvantaged groups such as Dalits and tribals. Since not much research has been done on social justice philanthropy related to caste and ethnic groups and their gender and class dimensions, this study provides a good insight into this neglected theme. The book will be of great use to NGOs, funding organizations, researchers and others working in this area. Source: http://www.rawatbooks.com
