There are countless avenues in this world for every individual keen to make his/her contribution to society. If the will to do good to do the society is in their DNA, corporates can effectively partner with local communities to bring about positive change. With the establishment of the Faizal & Shabana Foundation in 2007, we have taken this intention forward in a more organized manner. With a vision for ‘Giving to Create Impact’, we at KEF Holdings focus our efforts on picking projects which will bring about a paradigm shift in the lives of the people that it touches.
Solving problems that affect communities requires going to the grassroots and working with the people at the local level. We believe that this is where the community requires us most – to work with them to form the right, sustainable strategies and to employ innovative ideas to remove the barriers that prevent them from reaching their true potential. It is about empowering the communities with the skills they need, so as to eliminate dependencies and instil a sense of purpose and belonging in them.
The 3 pillars of The Foundation remains Education, Healthcare, Humanitarian assistance. In addition to these sectors, the Faizal & Shabana Foundation also takes up work in the field of sustainable livelihood creation, environment conservation from time to time. Though it engages with projects across the globe, The Faizal & Shabana Foundation’s primary focus is India.
At KEF Holdings we aim to move beyond the commercial objectives of our business and do something for the betterment of society at large. The Faizal & Shabana Foundation sits at the heart of KEF’s philosophy. By way of time, skills or monetary support each of the businesses under KEF Holdings contributes towards the projects that the Foundation undertakes.
