The Setco Foundation was created in 2007 to implement the Setco Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The Setco Foundation focuses on healthcare, nutrition, education and empowerment of the under privileged women and children in the Panchmahal district of Gujarat. The foundation aims to create a strong, self sufficient and progressive society. 5% of Setco Automotive’s Annual Net Profit is dedicated to the Setco Foundation.
The Setco Foundation works alongside the Integrated Child Development Services (ICDS) and government anganwadis because we believe that both SCALE and IMPACT can be achieved by public private partnerships. We are utilizing the anganwadis as an axis of change.
Setco Foundation’s fundamental areas of operation can be categorised under three heads,
Maternal and Infant health care
Early childhood development
Art and Counseling
Sports for Development
At Setco Foundation, we believe that
an empowered, democratic and progressive society can only exist where:
• Children are nurtured in a joyful environment.
• Women are equal members of society with complete access to health, education and socio-economic opportunity.
• Women can actively participate in decision-making processes.
• Continuous efforts are made to integrate marginalized communities into mainstream society.
