Who We Are
Cosmo Foundation was established in 2008 as the philanthropic arm of Cosmo Films to spearhead the company’s CSR initiatives. We believe that “we can make a difference to the lesser privileged ones around” by strengthening mainstream education in rural areas with skill-based courses, running environmental programs, and eliminating local & social issues or taboos through awareness programs.
We started our journey by collaborating with government schools located near Cosmo's plants in Vadodara and Aurangabad to empower rural students with supplementary education. Our educational programs are based on skill development with an aim to promote higher education & improve the employability of youth in these regions.
Over time, we have extended our efforts to encourage health and hygiene, personal safety, and environmental protection with our awareness and environmental programs that include providing for sanitary pad banks, constructing sanitation blocks, dustbins across schools & panchayats, conducting cleanliness & tree plantation drives, beautification of cities, and so on.
We also support the community in the occurrence of unforeseen & unfortunate incidents by working on the field and providing immediate relief to the people in need. For instance, when the COVID-19 pandemic imposed extended periods of lockdown, we supported the adversely affected sections with the large-scale distribution of food and health & hygiene kits. Our aim is to bring smiles to as many less privileged people as possible.
