CHILDLINE India foundation (CIF) won CSO Partners' Outstanding Annual Report Awards for the Voluntary Sector on March, 6, 2010 in New Delhi .
This year's theme for the award was 'transparency and accountability'. CIF's Annual Report was chosen over 240 entries, which competed for the honor.
An Annual report is an important instrument for ensuring transparency and accountability of any organization. Therefore, to recognize and promote quality in annual reports, CSO Partners have constituted "CSO Partners' Outstanding Annual Report Awards" in association with Financial Management Service Foundation, Credibility Alliance and Murray Culshaw Consulting.
The ceremony took place in The India Habitat Center - New Delhi on March 6, 2010 and the award was received by Shreeja Kanoria, former Program Coordinator, Communication and Strategic Initiatives, CIF.
This award provided a recognition and promotion to the good standards and practices adopted by CIF in resource management, public distribution, accountability and transparency in annual reporting . Moreover, it also highlighted the overall credibility of the organization in the non-profit sector.
This is like Karmic cycle finishing one circle. As, some years back Ms. Jeroo Billimoria, held a conference in Pune to set up a model for credibility alliance in NGOs.
This award is recognition of CHILDLINE's consistent efforts for transparency. It is highlighted by the fact that CHILDLINE India Foundation always puts a complete soft-copy of its Annual Report on its website for everyone's access and perusal.
