History

From very beginning, we, at Turnstone Global, believe that development has to be holistic, to bring real fruits to the neediest. Public Health, Education, Livelihood, Women Empowerment, Community Development and up-liftment of the marginalised people including persons with disability continue to be prime areas of our work. We wish to bring a substantial change on the ground by focusing our energies in these sectors as well as building our understanding about related issues. We, at Turnstone Global, firmly believe that a conducive and productive environment cannot be achieved unless all parameters of the development equation are adequately addressed. To meet our objective, Turnstone Global has support centres in 8 states on a people-centric model of development in areas like public health, education, gender, livelihood, community development and social welfare. Inspired by Gandhian ideals of social change, what guides our team is the Gandhian talisman –“Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man (woman) whom you may have seen, and ask yourself, if the step you contemplate is going to be any use to him (her).

Will he (she) gain anything by it? Will it restore him (her) to a control over his (her) own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to Swaraj (freedom) for the hungry and starving millions? Then you will find your doubts and yourself melt away.”

Within the organization, we held this value in terms of sound auditing practices and ensuring the partners [individuals/corporate] we work with, have full access to any information they seek or any project area they wish to visit.

Important credentials

We strive to ensure stringent measures are in place, to meet the highest standards of transparency, as we believe internal control is the key to good governance.
In order to ensure the effectiveness of the internal controls, the organisation has appointed Chartered Accountant firms of repute, as Branch Auditors. The Branch Auditors submit the audited reports of their respective branches to the management periodically. These reports are then reviewed by the Audit Committee.

The Audit Committee is a sub-committee of the Board of Trustees that was formed to ensure the effectiveness of the internal control environment.
