The Case study of Smoke-free Howrah that was successfully facilitated by MANT has been published by WHO as part of the much-awaited book i.e. The Power of Cities: Tackling Noncommunicable Diseases and Road Traffic Injuries. It is to be noted that out of 18 Case studies from even number of cities only Howrah and Balanga city of Philippines are the two cities which could be found on the coveted list of cities around the world because of their remarkable achievements in making the cities truly smoke-free.

Why should a corporate partner with organization?

MANT is willing to partner with corporates to reach the mute millions of that segment of the society who are grovelling in the quagmire of underdevelopment and are in real need of help to ensure a decent life. Presently MANT has been able to reach 1.5 million people every year. Our activities are somehow touching their lives. We have developed a system to demonstrate the societal implications and benefits of activities what we have been implementing. Paper publication, international presentation, media coverages and documentaries of the successes are the few examples. Our documentaries are being shown in film festivals both at national and international level. We have dedicated manpower for Social Media, photography and documentaries and have a very strong presence in the social media. Hence, the activities to be supported by the partners will be documented and presented in several ways to demonstrate the outcome/impact i.e. how the joint efforts are eking-out a rich harvest to strike a growing difference with the recent past at the grassroots level. The corporate has to partner with MANT to have the most of the investment in the light of its transparency of operation, its efficient team of workers and their proper management, its ability to present the success stories in national and international fora and its given commitment to work for the amelioration of the life style of the people grumbling and crumbling at the bottom tier of the social strata.

MANT is ready for employee engagement to ensure improved satisfaction; positive press and endless content for social media; reputation management; brand building to ensure bigger societal return on investment for the mission of helping the marginalised people. And for this we believe that for forging and building partnerships with corporate we should be focusing on identifying gaps and opportunities, work toward a common goal, lean onto each other’s strengths and give importance on clear communication with all concerned for long-lasting and effective partnerships.
