Formed to spearhead the work of Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) Group CSR as well as philanthropic activities, JSPL Foundation’s objective is to bring about a meaningful change to the lives of the underprivileged across the country and strive to integrate them into the mainstream. In this mission, there are no geographical and social boundaries and JSPL Foundation is open to work in any part of the country and the world.

JSPL Foundation is committed to create a difference and will coherently and rationally focus on thrust areas to impact in the areas of Health, Education, Infrastructure, Skill Development and Environment apart from others. The Foundation has already started putting its efforts into action, reaching out and conducting programs at the state level through the Swayamsiddh Samman in which we felicitate community leaders contributing to nation building and also communicating the overall objective of the JSPL Foundation to the nation.

In the last few months, we have held Swayamsiddh Samman awards ceremonies at Raipur, Bhubaneswar and Ranchi, where we have felicitated those who have benefitted from our CSR programmes and who are in turn benefitting their communities, thus forming a human chain. We plan to take these awards national in the coming months, thereby creating a property that JSPL Foundation will be associated with for eternity.

Apart from this, the Foundation has instituted a unique initiative called SwayamShilp, wherein a series of workshops will be conducted across India thereby providing artists from the tribal hinterland of the country with a national platform.

However, I believe that there is no end to the contribution one can give for betterment of our society. Working towards the upliftment of the underprivileged is the best way to serve mankind. What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But, it is each drop that together makes the ocean. Today, we are here, tomorrow our future generation will carry forward the work of JSPL Foundation. The journey will go on…

I invite all of you to suggest any other work that the JSPL Foundation can do in terms of CSR in India. I assure you that each idea will be carefully studied and implemented if found suitable. It will enable us to invest in people. After all, individual commitment is what makes a team, a company, a society and a civilisation work.
