The Lord Rana Foundation Charitable Trust (charity registration: RCT XR15072) was originally established to promote charitable and peace-making initiatives in Northern Ireland. In 1997 the trust shifted its focus to India, funding the refurbishment of a high school, and establishing educational facilities at Sanghol, near Chandigarh, Punjab. This has expanded steadily until it is now a 25-acre campus with several institutions offering education and training from nursery level to postgraduate studies.

The Trust wroks toward providing 3rd level education to the rural areas of Punjab. In the absence of this initiative in a rural district of Punjab, the poor children living here were deprived of university education which is only available in big cities. The trust funded a major building refurbishment and extension of a high school at village Hebowal (Punjab) in 1997-99, creating better facilities for students and teachers. As a result the school was upgraded to a higher secondary school.
To Promote peace an Institute for Conflict Studies & Resolution Practices (ICS&RS) is being planned which is inspired by the 2007 report of the Commonwealth Commission on Respect and Understanding, ‘Civil Paths to Peace’, edited by Dr Amartya Sen (noted Indian economist and philosopher). It offers a means for Commonwealth members to demonstrate practically their endorsement of the Report’s recommendations. The project is constituted as a not-for-profit, charitable trust registered in both the United Kingdom and India.
The Trust works towards providing relief and aid in disaster struck areas. In 2004 when a major Tsunami struck on the coasts of Srilanka and Southern India,.The LRFT provided emergency shelter and later on built 2 schools to facilitate education to the poor children
The Trust is facilitating the construction of a modern and well-equipped charitable hospital, the area’s first such facility.
- Community development projects such as the introduction of computer courses for women, as well as courses in Art and Crafts. These will provide the skills needed for people to find employment and perhaps start their own small businesses.
In close partnership with the village Panchayat, the Trust's objective is to develop the Sanghol complex as a role model that other rural communities in the Punjab could replicate and thereby improve education, health, enterprise and general lifestyles
