The enterprising Gujarati is everywhere. Visit any foreign land, however remote, you will almost surely find a Gujarati settled there. The hardworking, enthusiastic and the entrepreneurial Gujarati spirit is extremely adaptable.
The Gujarati settled abroad is a living testimony of what courage, wisdom and vision can accomplish. The presence of a Gujarati benefits every nation that has welcomed the global Gujarati.
And yet, wherever they are, Gujaratis never forget their roots. Their emotional bond with the land from where they first rose gets only stronger with time.
A Gujarati may be settled in Texas or Travancore, Mauritius or Mumbai, Dar-es-Salaam to Diu…the spirit is the same. And that's what binds each of them, wherever they may be.
It is to strengthen this bond, celebrate this spirit and take this relationship to a higher plane, that the six Non-Resident Gujaratis (NRG) centers were established by the government of Gujarat. Project 'Life' is proud to be one of the chosen six and the only NGO.
The NRG center aims to seek common interests, reinforce historical ties and build a bridge between the Gujaratis living abroad (or even in some other state within India) and the Gujaratis living within the state. This center will facilitate forming of all forms of mutually beneficial partnerships and enhancing the feeling of oneness between all Gujaratis.
The vision of NRG center is to support creating a world-class Gujarat by optimal utilization of knowledge, skills and experience of the global Gujarati. It will assist each to Gujarati play a vital role in the development of the state of Gujarat and create opportunities for everyone to benefit from and contribute to.
