Formed to spearhead the work of Jindal Steel and Power Limited (JSPL) Group CSR as well as philanthropic activities, JSPL Foundation’s objective is to bring about a meaningful change to the lives of the underprivileged across the country and strive to integrate them into the mainstream. In this mission, there are no geographical and social boundaries and JSPL Foundation is open to work in any part of the country and the world.
As Co-Chairperson, JSPL Foundation Mrs Jindal is committed to create a difference and has been coherently and rationally focusing on thrust areas to impact in the areas of Health, Education, Infrastructure, Skill Development and Environment apart from others. The Foundation has already started putting its efforts into action, reaching out and conducting programs at the state level through the Swayamsiddh Samman in which community leaders contributing to nation building are felicitated and also communicating the overall objective of the JSPL Foundation to the nation.
Swayamsiddh Samman awards ceremonies were held at Raipur, Bhubaneswar and Ranchi, where those who have benefitted from our CSR programmes and who are in turn benefitting their communities were felicitated, thus forming a human chain.
Apart from this, the Foundation has instituted a unique initiative called SwayamShilp, wherein a series of workshops are conducted across India thereby providing artists from the tribal hinterland of the country with a national platform.
Mrs Jindal believes there is no end to the contribution one can give for betterment of our society. Working towards the upliftment of the underprivileged is the best way to serve mankind. What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But, it is each drop that together makes the ocean. Today, we are here, tomorrow our future generation will carry forward the work of JSPL Foundation. The journey will go on…

The award was instituted to honour the unsung heroes who overcame adversities in their lives to create their own unique identity, displaying exemplary courage, commitment and dedication towards their cause.
