Tatsat Chronicle is the brainchild of Tatsat FoundationTM India’s first not-for-profit organisation that provides CSR-specific education, certification and skill-development solutions through its vast network domestic and global partners.
Tatsat Chronicle magazine and its 360-degree digital platform, including a live website with daily updates, Social Media channels, and a fortnightly newsletter in digital format.
The social sector is one of the fastest growing sectors in India. Given the current size of the social sector—accounting for approximately 8.8 percent of India’s GDP in spending terms—and the number of people who are directly and indirectly involved with this field, it doesn’t have a robust media platform that engages with the various stakeholders involved in this sector. It’s this gap that Tatsat Chronicle intends to fill and carve out a niche.
Tatsat Chronicle has been envisioned as a monthly magazine that offers a deep dive into the rapidly evolving Corporate Social Responsibility space for better understanding and appreciation of the remarkable work being done by corporate houses, Public Sector Undertakings and Non-Government Organisations towards creating a more equitable society.
The main objective of Tatsat Chronicle is to inform, engage and stimulate its readers with ideas, case studies and well-researched insights, covering the entire gamut of CSR activities in India and abroad.
Every month the print magazine with a production run of 50,000 copies and its digital version generate a combined readership of 250,000 people. In a short span of time, Tatsat Chronicle has established itself as a go-to resource for key decision makers and influencers, who are instrumental in shaping CSR policies and project implementation at the grassroots level in India.
