At RS Software we take our responsibility to the community seriously. We believe in treating our employees, customers and shareholders with respect and compassion. We strive to extend those same courtesies to everyone we meet. Our work with the Veerayatan organization of India has been at the center of our philanthropic activities since our inception in 1991.
Veerayatan began as the dream of well-known and widely respected Indian scholar and saint, Upadhyaya Shri Amar Muniji Maharaj. Inspired by his vision, Acharya Shri Chandanaji nurtured the seed of his hope into what is today considered one of India’s leading development organizations. Officially organized in 1973, today Veerayatan strives to improve the quality of life for local communities by enriching their daily activities through humanitarianism (SEVA), education (SHIKSHA) and inner development (SADHANA).
RS Software has regularly collaborated with Veerayatan over the years providing funding and resources for their benevolent activities. We also has worked alongside other key NGO’s and not-for-profit organizations donating clothes, medicine, money, and other goods for victims of disasters and natural calamities, such as floods and earthquakes. Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives insure we never lose sight of whom we are and what our obligations are to the communities where we operate.
