About Us

Give a man a fish; you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish; you feed him for life. Khushboo Charitable Trust—a self-sustained NGO and philanthropic arm of Cybage Software Pvt. Ltd.—believes in the power of education. Right from its inception in 2009, the Trust, also known as CybageKhushboo, has been constantly providing financial assistance to economically backward but promising students to help them fulfill their educational aspirations and secure a bright future. CybageKhushboo is relentlessly engaged in scalable educational projects to mould promising careers.

The Trust is the brainchild of Mr. Arun Nathani, CEO and MD, Cybage, and his wife Mrs. Ritu Nathani, Director, Cybage. The additional Board of Trustees includes Mr. Deepak Nathani, COO and Executive Director, Cybage, and Mrs. Geeta Lalwani, who looks after CybageKhushboo’s initiatives in Gujarat. Under the able guidance of Cybage’s senior management, the scope of CybageKhushboo is blossoming rapidly.

As a part of its main initiative, CybageKhushboo grants scholarships to students who want to pursue professional courses in Engineering (B.E. and Diploma), Medicine and related courses such as Pharmacy, Dentistry, Homeopathy, and Physiotherapy.

However our efforts expand beyond monetary assistance, we also conduct training sessions for the beneficiaries that facilitate overall personality development. These sessions on Spoken English, Communication Skills, Email Etiquette, Interview Skills and Group Discussions aim at providing the students with soft skills that will allow them to confidently face Job Interview rounds and settle in an MNC set up.

Arun Nathani is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of Cybage Software. Cybage is a data-driven company, and this work ethic primarily originates from Arun’s thought process of giving more importance to how the analysis of data is applied to decision-making rather than the data alone. Arun started his career as a software design engineer in the USA and has been contributing to software development and quality management ever since. He returned to India in the early ’90s and founded Cybage with the intention of creating one of the most efficient IT service companies in the world that provides a high value chain in the product engineering and IT services space. He believes that the right balance must be struck between being ‘customer-centric’ and ‘employee-centric’ in order to benefit from and provide benefits to both entities. He is a strong believer in the empowerment of the society through education and has been instrumental in establishing and promoting two Corporate Social Responsibility wings of Cybage: CybageKhushboo and CybageAsha . Arun was awarded the ‘CEO of the Year Award’ by the National Awards in IT Excellence. He has also been conferred the ‘CEO with HR orientation Award’ during the Talent & HR Leadership conference organized by World HRD Congress and ET Now. He was honored with the ‘Global HR Excellence’ award at the Asia Pacific HRM Congress. He is a conscious writer, drawing out management lessons from real-life situations and sharing them on his blog www.arunnathaniblog.com, which is regularly read by all Cybagians and a large populace outside of Cybage.

Mrs. Ritu Nathani is a dentist by qualification and a philanthropist by passion. The co-founder and director of Cybage Software Pvt. Ltd. has been honored as a ‘Leading Consultant’ at the third edition of the Women Leaders in India Awards in December 2011 for her contribution to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). She heads the two wings of Cybage CSR initiatives—CybageKhushboo and CybageAsha. Ritu was the chapter chair of Yi’s (Young Indians—a youth platform of the Confederation of Indian Industry) Pune chapter during 2012-13. While discharging her duties as the chapter chair, Ritu was instrumental in organizing several learning events, along with a leadership summit with former President of India, the honorable APJ Abdul Kalam. Ritu has also travelled far and wide to promote causes close to her heart. She was part of the official Indian delegation to G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit at Moscow in June 2013. She followed this up with a delegation to Pakistan in October 2013 for the Pak-India Young Entrepreneurs Bilateral Summit that was organized by the Young Entrepreneurs Forum (YEF) of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ICCI) in partnership with Yi, and Commonwealth Asia Alliance of Young Entrepreneurs (CAAYE) in association with Aman Ki Asha, a peace initiative between India and Pakistan. It was during her sabbatical from dentistry that she re-connected with her childhood passion for performing arts. For more than a decade, Ritu has worked as an elocution teacher, conducting private classes and training children for speech exams conducted by Trinity College, London. She has also worked as a freelance drama teacher in various schools.

Deepak is the Executive Director at Cybage. Relationship building and management is his strong forte and he connects with both the employees and the clients at a deep level. According to Deepak, the IT services industry is both resource-intensive and space-intensive. It is vital to consistently hire the right resources in co-ordination with the constant upgrading and upscaling of the infrastructure at the most cost-effective options. Cybage has grown very rapidly, in terms of resources and infrastructure, and Deepak has productively managed its consistency and taken this challenge head on. Deepak was honored with the ‘IT Excellence Award 2011’ by the Indira Group of Institutes for his dedication and outstanding contribution towards the growth of IT space in India. He has also received the ‘HR Leadership Award’ during the 3rd Asia’s Best Employer Brand Awards 2012 ceremony held in Singapore. Deepak actively lead CybageAsha initiatives from its inception till his retirement in August 2016. 

The concept of giving back to the society was ingrained in Geeta’s mind by her parents. Her career started after her children reached high school. A Commerce graduate, she worked as a Pre-Primary teacher for four years where she enjoyed spending time with the tiny tots. She always had a soft spot for children from the weaker sections of the society. Along with her husband, she supported such underprivileged children in whichever way she could for education and a quality life. In 2011, her interests got her associated with CybageKhushboo. Since then, she has been actively involved in CybageKhushboo activities starting from sorting out forms to interviewing and selecting students to monitoring their performance. The first batch of students that she supported and guided graduated this year. Quite a few were successful in getting decent jobs. She is astonished to see that even after coming from unfavorable living conditions, these students have a positive frame of mind and work hard to achieve their goals. She feels a sense of fulfillment to see their perseverance come to fruition. It gives her immense satisfaction and happiness to work with CybageKhushboo through which she is helping people stand on their feet and lead a life of dignity.
