Corporate Social Responsibility and Business Ethics

General Description

Although not new in the developed part of the world, the concepts of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and ethical leadership are making first steps in gaining popularity in developing countries, with Armenia being not an exception. Nowadays many Armenians can hardly explain what constitutes to be a good corporate citizen, which is quite often confused with engaging in charitable activities. It is obvious that any for-profit entity is mainly concerned with earning and accumulating wealth, but the current worldwide trend is that this is not the only determinant of their existence and long-term success. More and more businesses realize that they do not operate in a vacuum; continuous interaction with different stakeholders is critical, with serious considerations for the environment, economically vulnerable populations, and the society as a whole.

In light of the above, it is therefore paramount to raise ethical competence and integrity standards of local managers for them to succeed in today's competitive and highly demanding world. With this in mind, the given training is aimed at familiarizing the audience with the theoretical framework for corporate social responsibility and business ethics, addressing the issues of its practical application, and exploring its contributions and limitations to the society.

The World Bank Yerevan Office, Counterpart International-Armenia and the Jinishian Memorial Foundation are pleased to invite application proposals under the World Bank’s Civil Society Fund (CSF, formerly known as the Small Grants Program) and Counterpart International’s Limited Intervention Program Statement Grants Program. The size of an individual grant is the Armenian Dram equivalent of up to $10,000. Grants projects will be selected on a competitive basis, and will be available to local non-governmental, non-commercial organizations (NGOs) with at least two years of practical and active experience.

Applicant organizations are strongly encouraged to show cash or in-kind contribution commitment for the implementation of the project.

The grants will support activities whose primary objective is civic engagement – to strengthening the voices of diverse groups and promoting inclusion and participation of a broad array of citizens’ initiatives in development policies and processes. Adherence to this objective will be an important criterion for potential award. The activities should:

·    Promote public consensus and local ownership for reforms and for national poverty reduction and development strategies by creating knowledge-sharing networks, building common ground for understanding, encouraging government agencies, civil society, donor organizations and private sector cooperation, and sometimes even diffusing tensions;

·    Give voice to the concerns of poor and marginalized groups, and help ensure that their views are factored into policy and program decisions;

·   Strengthen and leverage impact of development programs, by providing local knowledge, identifying potential risks, targeting assistance, and expanding reach, also at the community level;

·    Bring innovative ideas and solutions to development challenges at local level;

·    Improve public transparency and accountability of development activities, contributing to the enabling environment for good governance;

·    Reveal problems related to youth and organize discussions on the possible solution of these issues.

Projects may also include workshops and seminars, costs for publications or audio-visual materials. The program will not provide support for operational projects; research programs; formal academic training programs; ongoing institutional support; scholarships; or for individuals applying for travel or studies. Please note that the administrative expenses of the preparation of proposals will not be considered, and administration costs of the NGOs during program implementation must be strictly limited and fully justified.

The overall duration of the projects should be no longer than twelve (12) months. The estimated start date for the implementation of these grants will not be earlier than May 1, 2009.  

Applications must be submitted in two (2) hard copies in the Armenian and/or English languages. The application should not exceed four (4) pages (excluding attachments).
