Programs Organizes by Santiago Martin

Working towards the betterment of society is the need of the hour for the advancement of our country. The striking differences between rich and poor have segregated the Indian population into two different strata and resulted in the emergence of the "middle class".

To decrease the growing gap between the higher and lower class, providing a chance of livelihood to the poor, Mr. Santiago Martin has continued to contribute towards elevating the social condition of the Indian subcontinent.

The social activities organized include food distribution programs, lending support during relief material, helping out people from economically backward societies, educating students, among other CSR activities.

Santiago Martin also built Charitable Trust to support the needy and poor.

The programs organized by Martin Charitable Trust include

Stressing more on this, Martin Group of Companies reached out to the schools in remote villages to bolster the condition of education by adopting numerous schools. In the past year, they have supported different schools in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh, offering education to thousands of children who came from downtrodden families.
