The communities where we operate have been instrumental in helping us build our business. Giving back to the communities has been one of our top priorities. We partner with local organisations that focus on education for children, skilling for youth and mobilising women through self-help groups that enable them to earn. We also provide healthcare for families to ensure long term wellness.
The Forbes Foundation was set up in 2012 to invest in organisations and strategic social innovation projects that are in Maharashtra, India but outside our immediate geographic communities. We focus on tackling issues in education, building resilience in communities, and supporting good governance. By investing in future innovations, we believe that we can collaboratively tackle some of the most pressing but unsupported issues faced by our society.
