Social Responsibility

Past: From 1995 till 2015

Nasir believes those trained & have chosen to work in the field of humanities & social sciences should also 
continue their passion for people in distress. This belief led him to do extensive work in people 
engagement on socially relevant projects throughout his professional career. His started back in 1995 by 
volunteering at the Mother Teresa Home in Pune for the old age home. As a HR leader from 1996 he 
started creating special interest groups of responsible employees in IT Industry to join for social causes
they believe in strongly. After the 2001 Gujarat earthquake Nasir joined the relief work while he was in 
New Jersey, USA. In 2004 Nasir led a group of employees to support Aasara, a shelter for abandoned
homeless children in Mumbai. In 2006 he cycled from Mumbai to Pune to collect funds to sponsor a girl’s 
shelter in Mumbai. In 2010 he supported old age home in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In 2014 while in Accra, 
Ghana he had joined the local team in relief work for those affected by floods caused by heavy rains.

them. He has also made some significant contribution by taking up complex projects using Corporate 
Social responsibility.

adults. These was in one specific slum in Pune where young adults were trained in their best suited 
vocation. This ensured that the students got gainfully employed instead of being susceptible to crime.

Nasir belief that he is exploring in 2021:

1. Nasir is applying his experience in creating special interest groups among Corporates in order to 
consolidate CSR funds for the fight against socially relevant projects. 
Success: Through Corporate,  IFCCI and French Embassy: Oxygen Generators are being distributed to needy Central Government Hospitals.

2. He is promoting the thought with Corporates globally, providing short term sabbaticals to employees,
who can join specific social causes and can work dedicatedly with local NGOs
