Parindey Event in Pune
Over the last 20 years, Catalysts for Social Action (CSA) has been working tirelessly to ensure that every vulnerable child is nurtured to become a happy & contributing member of society. To achieve our vision we have been building capabilities of the child care and protection systems to ensure vulnerable children are provided with the appropriate care and support and guided towards their full potential.

We also unveiled the success story book “Our Trailblazers – Hamari Kahaniyan” narrating the life-transforming success stories of Care Leavers from our Aftercare program.
