The founder Trustee had the vision that Growth is always considered the life line of any Institution/Organization and the same is true with Dalmia Charitable Trustee too. Just as buds and new leaves indicate the beginning of new growth for trees and bushes, new charitable activities introduced from time to time signify the vital transfusion of new energy, ideas, attitudes, backgrounds and view point for our Trusts.
No organization or movement can stand still for long.It must either continue to grow or stagnate and eventually perish. It is an established fact that only by bringing in new ideas/activities, we assure the continued existence of the instiution.Trusts are working with the idea that growth in the activities are its life, blood, the force that enables to continue good work for poor, needy and general public of Amritsar. To support the idea of growth, the founder Trustee laid foundation of an other trust named Gajanand Dalmia Charitable Trusts in 1984.
