Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

As a strong family culture and value to give back to society, the management set up a Trust much before the term CSR was coined. In 1987 Sri Ram Charitable Trust (SRCT) was founded and has been since then 100% funded by Thermo Group whose companies transfer yearly a % of its profits into the Trust.

Our Vision

To bring a sustainable change in the lives of the rural & underprivileged.

Our Mission

To adopt a village and hamlets around it and empower children, youth and women through relevant education, healthcare and promotion of livelihoods.

Preventive and Curative measures are included in our Health Care programs focused to serve mainly rural population. Under preventive care, we provide safe drinking water in rural areas and educated people on the importance of nutritious food. As a curative measure, we provide assistance for individual medical treatment in deserving cases and to groups through medical camps and direct assistance to establish hospitals.

Financial support for establishment of Eye Hospital and safe drinking water in rural areas are some of the other initiatives taken up.

Apart from agriculture and allied activities, alternative livelihood sources in rural areas are almost negligible.To help educated rural youth, the Trust is running computer training centers, trainings in spoken and written in the English language, Trainings in tailoring for house wives, etc. We have conducted vocational courses in our Junior College to help candidates who complete 12th standard to acquire employment skills.
