Twenty-five members from Kiran participated including Mavji Patel-MD, Mr. Dinesh Lakhani-Director, Mr. Rajesh Lakhani- VP, Mr. Kalpesh Lakhani-VP and other managers and sub managerial employees.
Mr Rajesh Lakhani, VP- Kiran Gems, said “This is the first time we participated in this type of an outside event which supports noble causes and as well as involves team participation. It was a good feeling for us.” Mr Dinesh Lakhani added, “This gave us one more opportunity to stand for a cause and we are happy and proud of it.”
Kiran Gems has its Corporate Social Responsibility activities integrated at two levels, namely- “business activities” pertaining to fair, safe working environments and support for family related personal and just issues; the second being “Philanthropy” in which the company supports various causes.
