GHCL’s commitment to the development of weaker sections of society is continuing since more than two decades. GHCL through its “GHCL Foundation Trust” has upgraded its CSR activities to cover a larger section of the society and included to provide support to the downtrodden, needy and marginalized citizens and also to create social infrastructure for their sustenance. The Trust was registered in 2007, under the Bombay Public Trust Act 1950, and since then it has been promoting CSR programmes within and outside company premises. Plantation, water conservation, and reaching out to the underprivileged sections of the society are among some of our CSR initiatives. The trust has ventured into many CSR activities along with its strategic partners like SWADEEP, HELPAGE INDIA, WASMO, KVK, BCI, GGRC, CSPC, BAIF, Gujarat Ophthalmological Association and District Blindness Control Society that has made the interventions effective and yielded desired results.
