We are socially active, and responsible to the society within which we operate from. We are accountable not just to ourselves and our stakeholders; we are answerable to the general public too. We believe that our deeds can influence individuals, and through individuals, families and the wider society they are part of. In a positive way. Our growth and progress are not complete without uplifting those around us. Keeping this in mind we have developed a number of programs that can benefit the underprivileged and marginalized segments of the society.
Financial independence of individuals can bring happiness to them and their families. We are only happy to help people in achieving that independence. Therefore, many of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) schemes are designed around this thought.
Every year we keep aside a part of our profits for health and related CSR schemes as well. For instance, this year we devoted a large part of our CSR funds towards providing free eye consultation, checkup, and distribution of spectacles for those in need, but don’t have the wherewithal to do so. That’s just one part of what we do. There’s always a team to identify and conduct socially responsible schemes. Over the next few years, our reserve towards social engagement is only going to go up. And we are happy about it!
Mulamoottil Charitable Trust
The Mulamoottil Charitable Trust, much like Mulamoottil’s CSR initiatives, deems ‘home’ as the unit that can bring about a positive change in the society. Financially independent individuals can lead to happy and self-sustained families. All the social work that the Trust does, therefore, revolves around families.
When we registered the Mulamoottil Charitable Trust in 2005 as part of our deep social commitment in the realm of eye care, healthcare and education, we had ‘happy families’ in mind.
The Mulamoottil Charitable Trust aims to:
1. Conduct free eye check-up camps in remote villages in and around central Travancore.
2. Establish schools, colleges and other educational institutions.
3. Organize eye check-ups in schools and provide spectacles at subsidized rates.
4. Establish a free ambulance service to aid the poor.
In eye care alone, the trust has conducted more than 300 camps since its inception and provided facilities akin to an eye hospital in rural areas. The trust established and runs the Mulamoottil Central School that provides international educational experience at marginal costs.
In the near future, the Trust aims it to establish a community radio for the school that could benefit the students and also the community they are part of.
