  • Since


Centre for Social Responsibility and Leadership (CSRL) emerged in response to the deepening inequality in India, particularly the lack of opportunitie Read mores for talented yet underprivileged students. Established in 2008 as a civil society organisation, it seeks to bridge the gap between corporate resources and students in need. By connecting corporates with these students, CSRL enables financial support for their education. The organisation's focus lies in nurturing talent, supporting underprivileged youth through education, and empowering them to compete for prestigious engineering institutes in India. CSRL's flagship initiative, SUPER 30, operates across 23 locations in states like New Delhi, Assam, Uttar Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, and more. Its primary goal is to reach and uplift deserving students, reducing socio-economic disparities in society. CSRL considers real education to be the embodiment of principles and ethical values. As a custodian of entrusted resources, it serves as a link between those committed to CSR and the beneficiaries, earning trust and support from both students and sponsors.
