In 1992 our beloved founder established the Choithrams International Foundation to render service and devotion to humankind and nature. Tangentially 1992 was the year of the Rio summit where 90 countries converged to work for a better world focusing on the 7 pillars which we draw upon for Choithram’s Planet 7 program whereby together we can strive to make a difference.
