Shingora Family Foundation (SFF) was conceptualized and set up in the year 2013
The program selects girls based on multiple criteria including enrollment in schools, family income, parent’s educational background, social background and the child’s aptitude. A comprehensive sponsorship is created to take care of a range of their educational requirements, providing not only academic support that enables them to make a success of their schooling experience but also material support. This includes uniforms, school bags, shoes, socks etc. to enable the girl child to go to school with dignity.

Commitment to ZDHC
At Shingora, we are committed to reducing our chemical footprint and protecting the planet. We have partnered with ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) and are actively working towards their goals. Our GTW (Green to Wear) audit assesses our environmental and energy management, greenhouse gas emissions, water and waste management, and chemical management practices. In addition, our CTW (Clear to Wear) program ensures that we monitor the non-usage of hazardous chemicals and maintain product traceability.
Our 2022 Higg FEM Verified score was 73.7% which is a testament to our commitment to sustainability. We are also eager to collaborate with our customers on new sustainable packaging ideas.
We take pride in our responsible water management practices, which involve reusing over 40% of water in our production processes and horticulture. The remaining treated water is redirected to a tree plantation adjacent to our facility, where we use a unique technique to evaporate water through the leaves of Casuarina trees. By doing so, we can maintain a balance between our production needs and environmental conservation.
Environmental and Safety Certifications
By collaborating with our network of partners and customers, we want to ensure that our action will have a positive impact on our environment and on people’s lives, in order to preserve a world worth living in.
