philanthropy, education, & healthcare

“This is not charity. This is business: business with a social objective, which is to help people get out of poverty.”
— Muhammad Yunus

Coimbatore is a special sort of place. People here seem to really believe in philanthropy and goodwill. There are so many remarkable charitable trusts which have their origins in this city, started by the members of the local community with a vision to do good and help others.

There are numerous hospitals which provide world class healthcare at extremely subsidized rates to countless people from around the world. The healthcare industry here has the capability and capacity to treat countless more if the central government allows for it.

There is a strong industrial base in the city which has expanded into newer sectors like IT and education as well. It remains a peaceful, affordable city with opportunities to expand and grow. The extent to which it realizes its full potential will be interesting to see.
