Imparting knowledge being one of Woodkraft’s motive, its very first service was in collaboration with the Hindu Seva Pratishthana (HSP) that believes in Loka Hitham Mama Karaneeyam (little for self, everything else for society). HSP is committed towards the upliftment of the deprived and those with special needs without any discrimination on the basis of caste, creed or religion. Through its services HSP aims at transforming the society where people and communities are self-reliant. Since its inception in 1980, HSP has been expanding its activities, covering more people from towns and villages who need their services.
