In July 2008, a formal group was formed on the initiative of some Jain families with the objective providing a collective social platform for holding cultural, religious, spiritual and social events and forging solidarity amongst Jain families in Indonesia. It was named as Jain Social Group, Indonesia(JSG). Over the years, JSG has contributed in many charity activities in Jakarta. It also has good collection of books in its mobile library which members can borrow for reading. Running Pathsala for imparting basic tatva gyan of Jainism is also an important goal of JSG. Any Jain can be a member of JSG.
The vision is to help the underprivileged society in Indonesia & India along with providing a collective social platform for holding the cultural & spiritual activities and forging solidarity amongst Jain families in Indonesia.
