SARA GROUP has always believed that its work in the society, aimed at uplifting the lives of people, creating more opportunities and serving the needs of the under privileged, is critical to the inherent success of the group.
It is in our fabric to contribute to society, to create businesses that build sustainable communities and to be a responsible participant in the growth of society.
SARA GROUP's work as a responsibly corporate citizen is routed through a number of charitable trusts, namely:
- The Mohinder Kaur Charitable Trust: Through this trust the group has extensively worked on creating world-class medical facilities at various Gurudwaras in Punjab. The trust has been instrumental in running a free of charge dispensary for the past fifteen years at the Sector 8 Gurudwara in Chandigarh. In addition, it has installed X-ray machines, elevators for the elderly and other health care facilities and all services have been rendered gratis.
- SARA Foundation: The SARA Foundation works on the private equity model towards corporate social responsibility. As a member of Dasra, the foundation supports causes such as adolescent women empowerment by funding NGO's working to tackle this social ill. All NGOs are identified by Dasra basis extensive research and analytics, ensuring that the funding creates long-term solutions to these issues rather than stopgap cures.
- Thakur Dwara Trust: Through this trust, SARA contributes actively to rehabilitation work post a natural calamity. The trust is known to have contributed extensively during the Orissa Cyclone, Gujarat Earthquake, Train accidents and Bihar Flood Relief as well as the recent Uttrakhand floods.
