The Idea

Harihar Jariwala, a great entertainer and more importantly - a greater soul - our very own Sanjeev Kumar. Out of the many things he gave us such as laughter, joy and entertainment, there was one more thing he wanted to give the society. A few near and dear ones knew about this hidden dream, a dream where he wanted to help and reach out to many in need.

Amongst all the fame and awards he won, a million hearts he conquered, he also was well known by his friends and family for his philanthropy.

Better known amongst friends and couligues as "Bhai", he always told his family that they should set examples to the society. He believed that apart from being a good human being it was imperative to be a good Indian as well.

About Sanjeev Kumar Foundation

To be loyal to the motherland was Sanjeev Kumar's utmost belief. He once mentioned that as individuals and countrymen of India it was our duty to do our bit for the motherland. It was not important to all the time speculate how much the Government has done for its people, but also in return how much has the countrymen done for its government was equally important, a movement which was driven by compassion and urge to help the people by being good citizens, better known in today’s world as NGO’s.
