A heritage of social
responsibility since 1945

For decades, we have been recognised as India’s most socially conscious agarbatti manufacturing company. The Sarathi Charitable Trust was founded in 1980 to give back to the lesser privileged sections of society.

Empowering through

Over the past four decades, the Trust has created a legacy of hope and upliftment, notably through initiatives involving education. Every year, the Trust offers financial grants to students from low-income families. The beneficiaries of these grants include now-successful doctors and engineers who have improved their families' finances.

In the remote village of Murugamalla, South India, the Trust has built a much-needed high school. With over 400 students daily, the school helps children gain access to a wider array of life choices. The Trust also regularly donates to other worthy social causes that immediately improve the well being of struggling families.


World of Women (WOW) is a registered Non-Government Organization (NGO) founded by director Vandana S Boggaram. WOW aims to improve the health and well being of underprivileged women in India, with a focus on menstrual management. Over 30,000 women across India have benefitted from WOW’s initiatives.

WOW accomplishes the following:

  • Educates women and girls in rural and lower-income areas about menstrual hygiene and management.
  • Provides them with menstrual kits that last for an entire year.
  • Works actively with local government bodies to reach women in factories, slums, villages, and state-run schools.
