Utsov And Philanthropy Trying to make a difference

Utsov & Philanthropy

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

Mother Teresa

No celebration is complete without sharing the happiness with others, especially the less privileged. Utsov truly believes in “We Rise by Lifting Others”. Hence, we started our philanthropic journey through several charitable organizations by donating part of our collections from Durga Puja Event. Your generous contributions and well wishes help us to stay in this journey. Let’s walk together to make a better future for others.

A few of our achievements so far. You made it possible.

  1. Utsov Inc. has signed up as a joint sponsor of Special Education Programs for tribal students of the Nayantara Memorial Charitable Trust (NMCT). The core purpose of NMCT is to change the plight of the tribals who do not have control over their own lives, by empowering them with tools and trainings that are necessary for shaping their own destiny.
  2. Shrirampur Child Guidance Center, of Shrirampur in West Bengal is an organization with a goal to support special children with emotional and behavioural disorders and physical challenges between 2-18 years of age. The idea is to maximize their potential and make them productive members of society to the fullest possible extent. Utsov Inc. has started donating money this organization in 2015 and we plan to continue with yearly contributions.
  3. Nepal has been seriously devastated by multiple earthquakes in 2015. Over 8,000 people have died, thousands more are injured, and countless people have been displaced form their homes. Utsov has donated to the Nepal Prime Minister's Disaster Relief Fund.
  4. Utsov Inc. has made donations to the St. Jude Children Cancer Hospital in USA. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
  5. The Ripan Kumar Mondal Memorial Trust of West Bengal India was setup to help cancer patients who are unable to pay for their own treatment. Utsov Inc. has donated to this organization in order to help their commendable cause.
  6. Sayak Kumar Manna is a bright young 1st yr Engineering student of Jadavpur University, West Bengal, India. He has been fighting leukemia for the past few years. Utsov Inc. along with numerous friends and well-wishers, have collected funds and passed it on his family for his bone marrow transplant treatment. We understand that the donations have been used successfully for Sayak Manna’s treatment.

Help us do more. Every dollar counts!
