Introduction

Parijat Industries is built on strong principles of responsible corporate citizenship. The Doctrine of Care we display towards our own staff, gets reflected in the approach of the promoters as well as all employees towards ethical business practices. Our primary commitment in our social responsibility is towards taking ethical and responsible decisions in the conduct of our business to be law-abiding, environmentally responsible and to be a proactive agent of positive social change.

Our proactive social change initiatives are conducted through two different channels viz. Anand Foundation (which is a public trust completely supported by Parijat Industries); and via Parijat Urja Chakra which is a rural project in Ambala, Haryana for the skill development of the community.

Parijat Urja Chakra is located at Fatehgarh, Ambala. It envisions being the center of empowerment for the community of people in its vicinity especially women and children. Parijat Urja Chakra recently completed it’s first year, and continues to positively affect more than 200 students in the neighbourhood.

A Computer Training Center: The Computer Training Center has been started in alliance with NIIT Foundation. Aided by NIIT’s best-in-class curriculum and trainers – Parijat looks forward to spread computer literacy in the region and provide equal opportunity to the children of the rural areas. The center also organizes various competitions for the development and engagement of the students like quizzes, story writing, etc.

Personality Development Classes: For Students to train them with basic soft skills.

Educational Trips for the Students of the Center: A recent trip was to Chandigarh. It was a delight for all the students at the center. The center has also been developed further as a library and study center for the youth of the community.

Fortnightly visits of agronomists: For training the farmers about the best practices of agrochemicals.

Anand Foundation is a not for profit registered Public Trust.
