Wardha is the land of prominent personalities - Gandhiji, Vinobaji and Jamnalalji Bajaj. Once, Gandhiji said
about my grand father Jamnalalji -“Jamnalalji is the man of the people – a fisher of men who had the knack
of gathering people around him and inspiring them with his idealism.” Very active during India’s freedom
struggle, Jamnalalji was a philanthropist who delighted in donating most of his wealth for worthy causes. It
was the profound conviction of my grand father, that the wealth of a business enterprise was bequeathed to
it in sacred trust by society. From the beginning, Jamnalalji was always more involved in social and
philanthropic activities rather than business. Jamnalalji made Wardha the centre for Gandhiji’s economic
and social development programmes. He persuaded him to start a branch of his Satyagrah Ashram in Wardha. Gandhiji brought in Vinoba
Bhave to start this branch in 1921.
We not only take pride in our roots in Wardha but still feel as a part of family members of the Wardha district. With a view to commemorate
the memory of my father Shri Kamalnayan and grand father Shri Jamnalal, we have established the Kamalnayan Jamnalal Bajaj Foundation
to express our gratitude and to support the cause of socio- economic development with human values in Wardha district. Looking at the grim
and deteriorating socio-economic conditions of the agrarian community, particularly in the Wardha district and the Vidarbha region in general,
we are committed to provide support to the rural community of Wardha district. We seek cooperation from all the development players to
work together to really make Wardha a socio-economically developed and a truly Gandhian district.
