Know Us    ::    Our Philanthrophy

India has an old religious tradition of philanthrophy, passed on down the ages by kings, noblemen and rich merchants.

Jamsetji Tata, the founder of the Tata Group, gave new meaning to this term. In his words: "There is one kind of charity common enough among us. It is that patchwork philanthrophy which clothes the ragged, feeds the poor, and heals the sick. I am far from decrying the noble spirit which seeks to help a poor or suffering fellow being. 'However, ' what advances a nation or a community, is not so much to prop up its weakest and most helpless members, but to lift up the best and the most gifted, so as to make them of the greatest service to the country."

The Sattva group firmly believes in the views of the Legend Tata and extend it to its fullest capacity and capability. The group contributes in several charitable activities and keeping in line with the religious background of the Chairman and the family, contributes in poor feeding in temples, endowment for building veda patasalas, medical facilities etc. The group is also associated in their individual capacity, in building and renovating various temples in Tamilnadu.
