The Braj Foundation team approached me some years back for the restoration of heritage sites in Braj region. I was impressed with their in-depth detailed study of Braj. They have a team of qualified engineers and professionals. They methodically plan each project with minute details and execute them with high quality of efficiency. What is more important that they utilize funds without any leakage. I will continue to support them.
The Braj Foundation is doing commendable work by renovating ancient sites of religious and cultural significance.
I understand government has also done some work here (in Braj) but not as beautiful as Rudra Kund has been renovated by The Braj Foundation.
I recently saw some of the projects done by The Braj Foundation. Its a revelation and inspiring to see not only the efforts but also the results that have come about after such strenuous challenges because the work they are doing is historic.
The Braj Foundation has achieved high credibility for the heritage conservation and water harvesting in Braj area. Their dedication, honesty and professional quality is commendable.
To develop our culture we need to be connected to our past. Braj Foundation has been doing seminal work in this regard. The Bajaj group is happy and privileged to support this endeavor.
