With the sole objective of social development and advancement to equality, Astron Charitable Trust (ACT) was founded in June 2011. ACT is a secular, non-profit organization registered with the Sub Registrar in the national capital and offering services in every corner of India irrespective cast, creed and religion.
With a vision to support the underprivileged in our society and support the government and the systems in improving governance, ACT has not limited its core objectives to any specific one. The core objectives range from social justice to promoting Indian Art, Culture and music to the welfare of women and child and also to look after the youth affairs etc.
There are many ways to measure a person’s success. In my view, however, a truly successful person is one who finds a way to return some of his rewards to the communities in which he lives. I feel a person cannot consider himself truly successful unless he makes an active effort to give back.
It’s for this reason that I feel so strongly about Social Service ACT. I see so much opportunity for the underprivileged in the society to use some of our monetary successes together with the energy of our spirited worldwide human beings to benefit others.
Being a socially responsible person can manifest himself in many ways: contributing money or efforts to needy causes; helping protect the environment; making a better livelihood for the poor, enhancing educational opportunities and numerous other activities. All of these have the goal of making life better for all we come in contact with.
So many persons contribute their time and effort voluntarily which is certainly a source of pride for ACT. Their contributions are not simply sending donations but actual participation in charitable work & campaigns that ACT undertakes & supports. We’ve helped with many causes, especially those related to women & children, education, environment, promoting Indian Art, Culture & Music etc. We will always make these activities part of the ACT culture.
It’s my hope that ACT can set an example to others by demonstrating that these campaigns & activities will actually create a very well-rounded social environment contributing to Universal Brotherhood & Peace.
