“The highest use of capital which can make differences is actually not to make more money only but to make money to do more and more for the betterment of life of existing as well as coming generation”.
These words are saying a lot about the philanthropist who is basically an entrepreneur and trying to make difference with whatever capital and he has in real. This statement tells very much the Indian philanthropist who is an entrepreneur too, Mr. Aman Mehndiratta.
At the first place let us be very clear about the difference between philanthropy and charity. Most people understand philanthropy and charity in a dilemmatic manner. So for this instance, we say- “charity is simple giving and philanthropy be doing”. Charity is for a short-term bliss, its emotional, it comprises immediate response, deliberately focused on rescue and relief, whereas philanthropy is for long-term, it’s more strategic and focused on rebuilding. There is charity, which is good but is temporary, and then there is permanent problem-solving charity, which is called ‘philanthropy.’
Aman Mehndiratta is such a promising philanthropist. He believes that giving can liberate the soul of giver. He has a vision, where felicities would prevail over despair and prosperity would prevail over crisis. His goal is to make this vision a reality and the path he has chosen for the same is philanthropy.
He believes in ‘do good and good will come to you’. Numerous philanthropic services given by Aman Mehndiratta are being cherished by the unprivileged people like, providing free food to those who cannot afford their two time meal, charge less educational programs run by him to make an increment in the literacy rate for overall development of the country, apart from this, direct gifts, impact investments, donor advised funds, charitable trusts, private foundations are some other philanthropic services provided by him for the enhancement of living standard.
Being truly engaged in the benevolence, Aman Mehndiratta also endeavors to inspire people to make a difference in the lives of others. He has given awards, several scholarships and grants to a diverse list of people and private organizations that have taken the initiative to change the world for better living.
