JAINSINDIA TRUST as a Religious
Charitable Trust which has been established by Shri N. Sugalchand Jain,
renowned entrepreneur and philanthropist to propagate Jainism, especially, the
way of life, philosophy literature and architecture etc.
Shri Jain believes that the
members of the Jain community have the potential to contribute a great deal to
the growth of the nation and the world and should be provided with the
opportunity to do so irrespective of their economic status. As a part of this
all encompassing cause, the Trust will also reach out to all sects of the Jain
community, especially the poor, needy and the uncared for fringes.
There is a general feeling that
the Jain community, as a whole, is quite well off. But in truth, quite a number
of them are indigent and yet do not seek others' help. The Trust will go all
forthcoming when it comes to seeking financial assistance even under dire
circumstances. So all of us have to reach out, identify potential beneficiaries
and ensure that they get all vital assistance so that they come up in life like
their more fortunate brethren.
AWARDS BY THEM’S
Beginning with a single annual
award, today there are four annual awards for Excellence in Human Endeavour in
the fields of
and Social services
These awards carry a cash
component of Rs.10 Lacs each, a commendatory citation and a memento.
Nominations for the awards are invited from all over the country through
advertisements in national newspapers, in English and Regional languages and
through letters addressed to leading public figures in the fields of politics,
public administration, civil service, education and the like. Copies of the
advertisement as also the copy of the letters addressed to various prospective
sponsors are available in the Foundation’s Website. Sue-motto, nominations are
also accepted ,though self nominations are rejected. These nominations are
initially short listed in terms of the guidelines prescribed for the purpose
and frivolous nominations are weeded out. The response to our request for
nomination is very heart warming. Judged by the increase in the nomination
received for the award over the years, the Foundation feels justified in its
initiative for recognizing these individuals and institutions engaged in
serving their fellowmen.
The prospective awardees are
subjected to special evaluation by the representatives of the Trust. The awards
are finalized and decided by a selection Jury of eminent personalities headed
at present by Justice Shri M. N. Venkatachaliah.
