At Vishal Group we have a number of businesses we run with social aims: the businesses are set up primarily to do good. The company must achieve its social objective and at the same time cover all costs through a revenue model so that the company becomes self-funding and self-sustainable. The success of the business is not measured by the amount of profit made in a given period, but by the impact of the business on people or the environment.
While philanthropy, charitable works, and projects have their place, we at Vishal Group believe we can best serve our communities by doing what we do best: applying our business acumen, experience, and expertise to help develop sustainable enterprises that meet genuine needs, create long term employment opportunities and create wealth that can be poured directly into building better lives. After the initial injection of resources for a start-up we find that VG social businesses build not just wealth, but pride, skills, connections, stability, and futures. Critically, they meet a real social need. Our long-term commitment comes through ongoing support, advice, and guidance; the long-term success comes from those driving the social business.
We find there are natural synergies with many of our other business interests, notable VG Foundation, and our charitable giving arm, the VG Education Foundation.
