The Kankaria Group’s charitable trusts, Harakh Chand Kankaria Charitable Trust, Awanti Kankaria Foundation, Tara Kumari Kankaria Charitable Trust, Ambica Welfare Trust, Shree Chandra Kumar Kankaria Foundation and Kankaria Literacy Trust are working for the upliftment of the poor and the needy patients, sponsoring students for education, donating money for animal rights protection, hospitals, medical clinics and helping out the needy to start their own business. Ambica Welfare Trust has recently been setup to help its employees and build schools for deprived children. The trusts are also deeply involved in the renovation of places of worship.

A hospital, named the Harakh Chand Kankaria Hospital in Howrah, West Bengal, under the agesis of Shree Jain Sabha has been constructed for helping deprived citizens and is offering all types of medical checkups and a 24-hour emergency department. Another hospital, the Smt. Tara Kumari Kankaria Hospital & Research Centre, is also under construction. This hospital will be built on the lines of a new, modern hospital with all the necessary modern amenities.

Apart from the four primary schools already imparting knowledge to the children of its employees, Shree Harakh Chand Kankaria Jain Vidyalaya, an English Medium co-education school has been constructed. The school provides scholarships and subsidised fee programmes for the deserving students. Students have all facilities at their disposal including a big play ground, an auditorium and compulsory computer education. Vocational training classes are also being planned. Another primary school located in the sunderbans area called the Smt. Tara Devi
Kankaria Jain Vidyalaya has been constructed for increasing literacy and educating deprived children. Work is also under way to construct a co-educational high school and college for the needy in Belur. Thus adding value to the cause of making India a country with 100% literacy.

The Kankaria Group has always been quick to provide humanitarian aid to areas hit by disaster. Recent campaigns have been in areas like the cyclone-ravaged state of Orissa (1999) and earthquake-struck Gujarat (2001).
Essential items like shelter, food, quilts and clothes were supplied to the victims in both states. Fodder and water was also supplied through various cattle camps in Rajasthan when drought struck the state in 1998.
In addition to disaster-relief, the Kankaria Group also conducts Eye Camps for the poor and needy in different parts of the country.

An animal shelter has been constructed and maintained by the group in Palitana, Gujarat. It is dedicated to the care of cattle, which were saved from the roads of Gujarat during the drought in the 1980’s and later. It looks after the sick and the injured animals. A large cattle sanctuary project is also underway in West Bengal.

Every day Lunch is provided to more than 700 under-privilege and older people  who find it difficult to earn their daily living. We are doing this from our Jute Mills daily and other relief operations also being arranged from time to time. Further Kankaria Group is planning to multiply this activity and reach out to more than 5000 people by providing them free lunch daily.
