Strengthening Social Cohesiveness

It's a truism that islands of excellence cannot have long life in a surrounding environment of impoverishment. The Foundation likes to contribute its mite. The Foundation believes in strengthening the larger culture of action which reflects due thought and understanding of precursor activities and subsequent consequent actions.

The Foundation also recognizes the need to support the holistic personality of the individuals and the society as a whole. Accordingly, within the limitations of its goodwill and resources, it goes out to support such activities. Cohesiveness and goodwill are the cornerstones of any social grouping which carves out a stable future for itself . The Foundation likes to make its contribution to this cohesiveness by contributing to group activity which generates goodwill and understanding.
