The trust runs a senior higher secondary school, an English medium primary school, a village development centre, de-addiction centre, a general hospital, eye hospital etc . The trust township and has the capacity to accommodate 1200 students & staff members and over 10,000 people annually are benefited from the various free-of-cost surgical / eye camps conducted in the hospitals every year.
All the group companies contribute a majority of their annual CSR budget to the trust while continuing the welfare programs within the villages surrounding the factories.

As per an NSSO survey, 34.8% of rural students in India, don’t finish school. Our efforts are concerted towards ensuring no child drops out of school. We work on various projects with schools around our factories, to ensure the well-being of all under privileged children and their continued enrollment in schools. We also work on spreading awareness among children about hygiene and health.
Health and general well-being
In India, 47% of rural citizens borrow money or sell assets to pay medical bills. Medical cost is one of the most common reasons for rural bankruptcy. We fund medical camps for free check-ups as well as surgical procedures at no cost to them. 100s of families visit the camp and are benefitted by the free treatment.
We deeply believe in the Swachh Bharat initiative of the Government of India. As a part of our CSR activities, we are building toilets in local schools, so that we can do our small bit towards this noble and very significant mission.
Wall of Kindness
The wall of kindness is a charity work phenomenon and a kind of welfare, usually done by attaching cloth hangers from outside of houses; those encourage people to donate miscellaneous useful things such as clothing, shoes etc. It was first introduced in Iran and since then the practice has quickly spread to other countries as well. Borrowing the noble thought behind this concept, we have built our own “Neki ki Deewar” or wall of kindness just by our factory gates wherein any person wanting to voluntarily donate excess clothes / shoes etc can hang them on the wall. This allows a needy person to anonymously take what he needs without any humiliation.
Water conservation and harvesting
At Modern, we are committed towards water conservation. At our factory, we purify our entire waste water produced during the manufacturing process for reuse and are proud to be a “Zero Discharge Plant.” Further, we have adopted water harvesting at our plant where rain water is being harvested to restore the water table.
