Create 4 Cause
Create4Cause is an innovative social project to challenge the status quo in order to support the unnoticed causes through art. We aim to think differently. Our projects are mutually discussed, super transparent, and executed by best professionals. We just happen to work on creative projects. Do you have one for us?
HOW C4C WORKS
Any creative professional who is ready to contribute his project fee towards a social cause.
Eg. A professional photographer who would work on a product shoot for a brand and is happy to donate his project fee towards a cause he supports.
Creator and Brand mutually discuss the social cause for full transparency.
Eg. It could be supporting education of your housemaid's daughter, feeding the poor or funding a business idea of an underprivileged person(s).
Brand or individual seeking creative work and is ready to match the fund.
Eg. A big brand looking for a creative ad or a bride looking for a wedding photographer. You can choose from a list of our social creators who will deliver your project professionally and you have to pay his fee + match it towards the social cause.

The story so far…
In the summer of 2017, Saurabh Narang got an invitation from his CEO at Barclays India, Uma Krishnan, who was interested in buying his photographs. In order to avoid giving his award-winning photographs for free, he asked her to contribute some amount towards her favourite social cause and the idea of Create4Cause was envisioned.
Later that year in August, he took a year-long sabbatical from his banking career at Barclays and went on a journey of his lifetime to travel the world with his social project #Create4Cause. To date, he has collaborated with multiple organisations to raise more than Rs. 7lacs (EUR 8,800) and to document unique communities across India and Europe.
Throughout the journey so far, he has curated photography workshops to support girls' education in a remote village; has collected plastic bottles from a dump-yard to create a life-size art installation as an environmental awareness project against plastic; and has worked to protect human rights of elderly widows partnered with a local NGO in Vrindavan. The out-of-office experience was so fulfilling that he left Barclays in August 2018 to work as a full-time photographer and a social creator.
Our projects are about a lot more than just making money. There is a strong emphasis on meaningful and satisfying work.
