Committed to giving back to the Society

Social Responsibility

With a population of over 1.2 billion people out of which 50% are below the age of 25, India has mind-boggling capability in human capital and resources. To get this vast talent pool skilled is crucial in maximizing the demographic dividend for the country. At eInfochips, we are very sincere in our effort to tap into this amazing human capital. Accordingly, we founded Dr. K. R. Shroff foundation in 2011.

“We believe that we should give back to the society, more than what we borrow from it. This idea will leave the planet richer for generations to come.With this thought, we enable technology advances that make life easier and safer, and we also enable education for the underprivileged that empowers the impoverished generation of today.Our goal is to educate over 1 million underprivileged children by 2025, and our employees, shareholders and customers contribute to it in their own way.”

One unique success story is of Dasharath – a differently abled youngster in the Vadali village of Gujarat. We taught Dasharath how to make LED bulbs with a higher efficiency, leading to low costs. Now, he is able to manufacture around 100 LED bulbs per day at our facility. By doing so, not only does he sustain his own living, but he is also able to provide a product that outlasts other products, which benefits his entire community. Despite his limitations, he stands tall as an inspiration to everybody involved with the KRS Foundation.
