manner, KKJ Foundations was formed and for this purpose a
self-contained township with a built-up area of approx. 300,000 sq.ft. is
being constructed in a backward village to be known as ‘KKJ Township’
at Namakuzhy, Perumbadavom Road in Ernakulam Dist., Kerala State, India.

The Foundation would
like to reiterate its commitment to add more meaning to ‘corporate social
responsibility’ and that the Mission set out hereinabove on priority basis
are not subjective in nature and hence would be reconsidered for
continuous improvement in line with the changing requirements.
agree that, our financial resources are absolutely modest in comparison
with the societal needs especially in terms of high magnitude of very low
income group in Indian villages who do struggle even to meet their basic
necessities. However, the Foundations would certainly focus its broadly
set goals in the upliftment of the destitute and the underprivileged with
humble might, humility, above all with the abundant blessings of the
Almighty and the invaluable prayers of all our ‘Well-wishers’.
