As a 4th generation diamantaire, we have always been blessed. As GD Birla once said, “You have received a lot of wealth and good resources. If these are used to serve others, then, of course, such resources will become useful. If not, they will become a devil’s weapon.” We have taken that to heart and believe our goal should be to help the society that has helped us. We give 20% of our profits to Jaipur Foot, the world’s leading artificial limb provider, so each dollar you spend with us goes into helping someone in need. In addition, through our trusts, we try to match the contribution each year. What costs tens of thousands of dollars in the United States, Jaipur Foot manufacturers it for around $70 and provides it at no charge. Seeing the joy of restoring someone’s dignity as they can walk again is something that can’t be expressed.
