The Hinduja Foundation
Hinduja Foundation is an important milestone in a journey in humanitarianism which began with the philanthropic work of Paramanand Deepchand Hinduja (1901 - 1971), founder of the Hinduja Group.
The Hinduja Group was moulded in the entrepreneurial traditions of the birthplace of Shikarpur in Sind, at the young age of fourteen Paramanand arrived in Mumbai and with his prodigious drive for taking on challenges, he established a family business which rapidly spread to a number of countries in Asia and beyond.
This legacy is carried forward under the aegis of the Hinduja Foundation which works in tandem with Hinduja Foundations established in the UK and the USA. Together they form an integral part of the Hinduja Group and strive to achieve their goals by creating socially responsible institutions; working jointly with other institutions of repute and by supporting deserving NGOs working for similar objectives. The other trusts established by Parmanand and activities inspired by him are dear to the Foundation which acts as the coordinating and guiding body, lending a helping hand wherever necessary.
The Group companies have, over the years, developed a symbiotic relationship with the Foundation and their backing is an unfailing source of support in fulfilling the dreams of the founder.Drawing inspiration from the founder, the Hinduja foundation believes that philanthropy, a sacred social responsibility of all enterprise, is worthier when it encourages self help and sets an example for the younger generations. Srichand P. Hinduja, Chairman of the Hinduja Group, leads the Foundation. "Our aim," he says, "is to build bridges between India and the world, between the past and the present, between generations that are and generations to come".
