Welcome to CAP
Reflections on our Work :
Very often, we find people who want to start non-profits but do not know how to go about it. We also find established organisations struggling with the bevy of laws we have in India, especially in Maharashtra, such as the Bombay Public Trust Act, the Societies Registration Act, the Income Tax Act and the FCRA. In times of difficulty, most non-profits need a friend, an advisor whom they can talk to and who can guide them on how the laws apply to them, what elements they need to take care of and so on. CAP has provided yeoman service to hundreds of NGOs grappling with these issues. For people like me, it has reassuring to know that if an NGO needs this kind of assistance, all we have to do is to direct them to CAP.

CAP is a very valuable partner for Child Rights and You (CRY), particularly in financial and legal matters. For over a decade, CAP’s partnership with CRY has been that of an enabler (very similar to CRY’s partnership with its grassroots-level projects). CRY acts as a catalyst: a link between grass roots-level partners and their work with children on the one hand; and individuals and corporations that contribute their money, time and skills, on the other. As a custodian of these resources, it is extremely essential and crucial for CRY to ensure accountability and transparency at all times. One of the organisations that has provided quality support in these matters has been CAP.
The CAP team has always been there whenever we needed their advice and guidance. They have supported us and helped our teams adhere to the many compliances (and subsequent changes therein) required of organisations like ours, such as the FCRA, or the Income Tax or BPT Act.
For instance, when the Ministry of Home Affairs made amendments to the FCRA Act and Rules 2010, CAP provided us with the best advice on interpretations of the additional clauses and articulated effective and efficient solutions on the implementation of the various new rules under this Act.
