Corporate Social Responsibility

Long before the time, the term CSR was frequently used in the corridors of the Business World, it was already a “way of life” in KKSK.

Apart from inheriting the fine-legacy of their father, whose name was “synonymous” with the humane, charitable acts in the small township of Erode in South India, there were other reasons too, for the profound dedication to social – causes. The tragedy that struck the family in 1979, with the sudden demise of the mother & father together, left three little children alone to face the “struggles of life” at a tender age.

This was instrumental in forming the “mindset” of helping the needy. Be it Medical, Educational, or any emergency needs of the poor & needy in the local surroundings, it is passationately attended to by the family.

KKSK Educational Trust is one such charitable wings, that runs a school for the under privileged poor children, where 1100 Students are given high-quality education, free of cost. For, the KKSK family knows, all the industrious activities apart, putting a smile on the face of the needy, lends a beautiful dimension to the mission of Life.
