Corporate Social Responsibility is vital in the modern world as it reflects a company’s commitment to ethical practices, community well-being, and environmental sustainability. Embracing CSR not only enhances a company’s reputation but also fosters positive societal impact, aligning businesses with the evolving values and expectations of a socially conscious global community.
63 Moons Technologies Limited founder, chairman emeritus, and chief mentor, Jignesh Shah stands out as a visionary leader when it comes to being socially responsible.
Formerly known as Financial Technologies Limited until 2016, the company achieved a milestone under Mr Jignesh Shah’s leadership by launching the Multi Commodity Exchange of India (MCX), formerly a sister company of NSEL, India’s inaugural commodity exchange in 2003.
Jignesh Shah, FTIL, and CSR
Beyond financial innovations, 63 Moons Technologies is making substantial strides in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), guided by a philosophy deeply rooted in Mahatma Gandhi’s wisdom: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
Both Jignesh Shah and the company acknowledge the responsibility to social stakeholders in the conscientious environment in which Financial Technologies operates. This commitment is not merely a formality but a living embodiment of Gandhi’s transformative vision. The CSR initiatives undertaken by 63 Moons Technologies reflect a dedication to positively impacting society, embodying the spirit of being the change they wish to see.
Empowering the Underprivileged Through MPFA
A notable CSR initiative undertaken by 63 Moons Technologies involves a partnership with the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MPFA) movement. To empower the underprivileged, the company actively supports the MPFA by providing exposure and publicity through various mediums, such as corporate gifts, calendars, and events.
This collaboration goes beyond financial contributions; it seeks to elevate the talents of those facing physical challenges, ensuring their artwork reaches a broader audience. By embracing the MPFA cause, 63 Moons Technologies supports artists and fosters a more inclusive and compassionate society.
Strategic Partnerships for Rural Development
63 Moons Technologies recognizes the importance of reaching out to rural communities, where development initiatives often face unique challenges. In alignment with this, the company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL).
This strategic partnership aims to disseminate price information in rural parts of India through IOCL’s rural petrol pump kiosks.
By leveraging the extensive network of these kiosks, 63 Moons Technologies ensures that crucial information reaches remote areas, empowering rural communities with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions.
Education for All
Education is a cornerstone of societal progress, and 63 Moons Technologies actively promotes literacy. Under the leadership of Jignesh Shah, the company has taken a leading role in supporting the ‘Teach India’ literacy campaign initiated by the Times of India group.
This commitment to education goes beyond financial contributions; it reflects a belief in the transformative power of knowledge. By supporting initiatives that focus on literacy, 63 Moons Technologies is contributing to empowering individuals and communities, fostering a brighter and more equitable future.
Khushi ki Kiran: Employees Making a Difference
Corporate social responsibility is not confined to the boardroom; it extends to every individual associated with the organization. Recognizing the importance of employee engagement in social initiatives, 63 Moons Technologies has a unique initiative called “Khushi ki Kiran.”
This program encourages employees to actively engage in community service, positively impacting the lives of the underprivileged. Through volunteering efforts, the employees of 63 Moons Technologies exemplify the company’s commitment to being the change they wish to see in the world, one act of kindness at a time.
Jignesh Shah’s leadership at 63 Moons Technologies goes beyond financial success; it embodies a commitment to social responsibility and positive change. By aligning CSR initiatives with the principles of Mahatma Gandhi, the company actively contributes to the well-being of society.
From empowering artists with physical challenges to disseminating essential information in rural areas and promoting education, 63 Moons Technologies is a shining example of how businesses can be a force for good. In the spirit of “Be the change,” Jignesh Shah and his team are not just creating financial innovations but also fostering a more compassionate and inclusive world.
