Philosophy

‘The time has come to say fair’s fair

To pay the rent

To pay our share

The time has come

A fact’s a fact

It belongs to them

Let’s give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning

How do we sleep while our beds are burning

How can we dance when our earth is turning

How do we sleep while our beds are burning"

- Midnight Oil

Our Beliefs

Many a philosophy underscores what Veekes & Company hopes to encourage through its businesses. We will continuously strive to work with those with promise, encourage the small enterprise and the village economy, provide opportunities for underprivileged and the marginalised communities where we can, and be environmentally sustainable. Ownership over time will be shared with the community that works with Veekes & Company by generating a class of franchisees, shareholders and successful entrepreneurs. We wish to be more involved with our immediate environment and participate in some small measure in social and political change.

It is our belief that a whole generation, maybe two, became apethetic to social and governance issues post independence and were least involved in the process of change allowing the system to become what it is today. Community involvement is vital in making the system work for us and we have seen this happen time and again in CMCA, an NGO that VNT works closely with, (www.cmcaindia.org) an organisation that devotes its efforts to inculcate citizenship and democracy values amongst children, building thereby a stronger, involved and more sesnsitive future.
