Pawar said while today’s generation is aware of environmental issues, there is a need for greater emphasis on water conservation. Dalvi said, “This is a good platform for corporate organisations and NGOs to come together and understand each other’s needs. Companies should come ahead and help NGOs. The PMC can also be involved in this work.”
Jadhav laid emphasis on the need for registration for all NGOs to get monetary help. She said a workshop will be held for the purpose.

Gaikwad said, “Some NRIs are eager to help in developing India. However, they don’t have information about genuine NGOs to invest their money. It will be helpful if information is made available on the Internet.” Goyal said many people are ready to donate money for social causes. But they are not sure whether their money would be used properly.

Mundada said the idea of organising the conference was to bring corporate organisations and NGOs on the same platform.
