IMPACT OF PHILANTHROPY ON SOCIETY
Philanthropy is like a small plant, which when watered properly will turn into a big and fruitful tree, providing everything good to bring felicity to everyone, from shadow to pure air to breathe ultimately making the whole atmosphere to rejoice. Aman Mehndiratta has adopted such plant and started watering with full dedication and care, so that society could enjoy its gifts in present as well as in future. Let’s have a quick peep into the world of philanthropy; surely it is not any rocket science which can make your head go round to understand. In the simplest form we can understand it would be, Philanthropy is the act of selfless giving to get rid of the problem and its cause permanently. Aman Mehndiratta, being a splendid philanthropist has proved that any big change can be done by profuse determination and dedication towards the goal. He has undertaken the task of making the world a better place to live in and for the same the tool he adopted is Philanthropy and urged to give back what society has blessed him with. But ever wondered, what impact does the act of philanthropy has on our society or for what reasons he chose the same for this big deed?? Philanthropy can be a trailblazer for the problems society is dealing with now a day. The top most crisis with which our society is dealing with like hunger, poverty, illiteracy, unemployment are becoming veracious day by day and if one wants to tackle all these simultaneously, then the ad-hoc for the same would be philanthropy.
Aman procured the idea of philanthropy to extract utmost advantages and make the better living no more a dream. This idea prevailed in his mind when he got to know the intense impact of this practice on society. Actually the strong commitment of philanthropists, in both the roles whether as personal supporters and on fundraising appeal boards, has and always will, have an extraordinary impact on unprivileged ones, areas suffering from scarcity or crisis, poor communities and on the whole society. Firstly, it surely helps and fills the gaps created by market failures. In private sector, capitalism is a good and effective way to produce goods and services for society; so Aman depended upon the private philanthropy because it is a good way to produce social benefits. Secondly, philanthropists take risks that others won’t, and being present in the field creates more and better impact, on the other hand, private sector is always unwilling to take risk without any potential of profit. Philanthropist’s selfless giving impacts on society in unconditional way. Third, philanthropy can help scale good ideas. Philanthropists can identify innovative solutions to challenging problems like the ones discussed earlier, then develop the evidence of their efficiency, and then help demonstrate opportunities that can be scaled up and give light to the sustainable development. And last but the least, philanthropy allows us to be connected and share values. What Aman Mehndiratta believes is that philanthropy will have positive impacts on the society only on the note when people are driven towards it with all their heart and will with their values. They must be caring about the nation and the betterment of society. People are moved to help others, because humanity can get helped by humans only.
