We plan to have 8 content partners and are identifying them through our research.
The content partner will be one NGO / NPO from 6 continents (Oceania - Australasia, Asia, Africa, Europe, North America & South America) plus one each from India & Thane.
We know that as of now, there does not exist an NGO / NPO in Antarctica continent.
We plan to provide one free banner to 6 continent content partners. This will be either the name of the NGO or their logo and the size of each banner will be 190 px width and 30 px height.
The banner for NGO in Asia will be from countries other than India because India & Thane are our global examples and we will give a banner of 502 px x 40 px each to an NGO from India & Thane at the top of this folder.
All the 8 banners will be from now to March 2018.

Intro

A slum is a heavily populated urban informal settlement characterized by substandard housing and squalor. While slums differ in size and other characteristics, most lack reliable sanitation services, supply of clean water, reliable electricity, law enforcement and other basic services. Slum residences vary from shanty houses to professionally built dwellings that because of poor-quality construction or provision of services have deteriorated into slums.

Slums were common in the 18th to early 20th centuries in the United States and Europe. More recently slums have been predominantly found in urban regions of developing and undeveloped parts of the world, but are also found in developed economies.

According to UN-Habitat, around 33% of the urban population in the developing world in 2012, or about 863 million people, lived in slums. The proportion of urban population living in slums was highest in Sub-Saharan Africa (61.7%), followed by South Asia (35%), Southeast Asia (31%), East Asia (28.2%), West Asia (24.6%), Oceania (24.1%), Latin America and the Caribbean (23.5%), and North Africa (13.3%). Among individual countries, the proportion of urban residents living in slum areas in 2009 was highest in the Central African Republic (95.9%). Between 1990 and 2010 the percentage of people living in slums dropped, even as the total urban population increased. The world's largest slum city is in Mexico City.

Slums form and grow in many different parts of the world for many different reasons. Some causes include rapid rural-to-urban migration, economic stagnation and depression, high unemployment, poverty, informal economy, poor planning, politics, natural disasters and social conflicts. Strategies tried to reduce and transform slums in different countries, with varying degrees of success, include a combination of slum removal, slum relocation, slum upgrading, urban planning with citywide infrastructure development, and public housing.

Source

 

It is not necessary but it will be good if the NGO content provider helps our online research by sharing relevant issue related project in their continent.
They should not give more than 100 words information.
CSRidentity.com will share the information and at the end will share the source (which is name of the relevant NGO content partner and we will link the source to the relevant NGO content provider website).
If the NGO from Asia provides information of a country in Africa continent or any other continent, we will give the NGO from Asia as the source. Which means any content partner from any continent is free to provide information from any other continent and get a link to them as source.

There are two things which we are careful
1) The project mentioned must exist.
2) We will share the project and will not name the name of the organisation which does the project. If anyone is interested, they will communicate with the source (which means our relevant content partner) and not us or the sponsor.

We dont want to dilute the identity of the sponsor of the issue.
Ideally we want the sponsor of the issue to be known for that issue across the world.
Of course, we must mention here that we will name the 8 NGO content partners on the index page of the relevant issue with link to their website.
As a responsible organisation, our editorial has a defined view on the type of NGO here. Our email id is Datacentre.
