Habitat for Humanity and Rohit Communities Give Family the Keys to a New Home

Habitat for Humanity and Rohit Communities Give Family the Keys to a New Home

 Leduc, AB, September 14, 2011 – A Leduc family has been welcomed home.  The excited Habitat partner family received keys to their new affordable condo home in front of proud staff from Rohit Communities, an Edmonton Home Builder, and Habitat for Humanity Edmonton.  The new home was made possible by Rohit Communities as part of their pledge during Habitat Day in the Capital Region this past April.

“On behalf of the City of Leduc, we’re thrilled that a local family received assistance from Habitat for

Humanity to ensure they could continue to live in the community of their choice,” said Alderman Dana Smith, City of Leduc.

Habitat families purchase their new homes at market value from Habitat for Humanity, but pay an interest-free mortgage that is amortized to 25 percent of their income. The interest-free mortgage is what makes the new homes affordable. The families’ mortgage payments are then reinvested into building more Habitat homes; making Habitat’s program sustainable.

Rohit Communities demonstrates their leadership value by “raising the bar on achievement, inspiring others, and being a role model for others.” This value was on display during Habitat Day in the Capital Region, when the Edmonton Home Builder confirmed their commitment to provide a house to Habitat for Humanity for the second consecutive year.

“Our company has always looked for hands on charitable opportunities that focus on providing a hand-up to those in need. Habitat’s sustainable community model is exactly that. We are thrilled to be partnering again.” said Rohit Gupta, Chief Financial Officer of Rohit Communities.

Habitat for Humanity knows that it takes many partners to build strong, vibrant communities where families have access to safe, decent, and affordable housing. “Communities are strengthened when corporations, non-profit organizations, community groups and individuals all join forces to provide access to affordable home ownership,” said Susan Green, Habitat for Humanity Edmonton Board Chair. “Families who can focus on the future will thrive and in turn invest their resources in making their community even stronger.”

This new home was made possible by the generosity of Rohit Communities and the Government of Alberta. Habitat for Humanity Edmonton looks forward to continuing these partnerships as they work together to provide capital region citizens with access to safe and affordable home ownership opportunities.

About Habitat for Humanity Edmonton:

Founded in 1991, Habitat for Humanity Edmonton is a non-profit organization working towards a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. Their mission is to mobilize volunteers and community partners in building affordable housing and promoting homeownership as a means to breaking the cycle of poverty. With the help of thousands of volunteers, HFHE have provided many families with safe, decent and affordable housing across northern Alberta.

Summit Seekers Update

Summit Seekers Update

July 20, 2011

The founders of Rohit Group of Companies, Radhe and Krishna Gupta are determined to reach their latest goal but it’s not an easy feat! Their goal is to raise $50,000 for the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation and to climb the largest free standing mountain in the world, Mount Kilimanjaro. “This is the experience of a lifetime,” says Krishna as they embark on this journey together.

Training has begun as the Kilimanjaro climbers arrived at the Jasper National Park last month to take on Morror Peak, a popular six hour training climb for more difficult expeditions. A real life simulation brings to life the demanding terrain they will be experiencing as they head to Tanzania on August 8th for the 11 day trek across varying climate temperatures and altitudes.

Weeks of training and spirited preparation have brought the couple closer together as they push themselves through Edmonton’s river valley on an ongoing basis. Radhe and Krishna have raised over $36,000 to date and have been hailed in the media as positive models of the human spirit. CTV and the Edmonton Journal are just a few of the media outlets that have been providing coverage of the climbers. Only two and a half weeks remain before they leave for the climb.

“It’s so inspiring to see them take this on at this stage of their lives,” said Linh Pham, who works at Rohit Group of Companies, “We’re all cheering for them!”

Invermere Luxury Resort hosts Five Star Event featuring The Sheepdogs

Invermere Luxury Resort hosts Five Star Event featuring The Sheepdogs

Invermere, BC June 30, 2011
It was like no other event held before in Invermere, British Columbia, as Copper Point Resort had its big grand opening just two days ago. This spectacular event was held especially for the valley residents and visitors in mind and was put on by the developer of the resort, Rohit Communities. More than five hundred people came out to celebrate the special occasion which featured a live outdoor performance by one of Canada’s hottest new bands The Sheepdogs.
The Sheepdogs, a talented new band from Saskatoon, have been turning heads with their recent nomination for the Western Canadian Music Awards for Independent Album of the Year. This amazing new band has a rock-a-boogie blues style that has also landed them in the final two for the “Rolling Stones Choose the Cover” contest which the winner will be announced on the August 1st episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The selected band will then go on to make their live television debut on the program.
“For us it was important to choose a band that was proudly Canadian, and had fun with the fact we are a pet friendly resort. We were proud to host this incredibly talented band of musicians and if you haven’t heard of them yet, the entire world, certainly will soon.” said Michellene Kandert Rohit Owner Representative “It is a proud moment for us and we wanted to host an event for everyone to remember.” In addition to the free concert were six stations with different set ups, beverages and tasters. Kids enjoyed the many activities in the multi-use sport court, bouncy castle, and playground. People could enjoy tours of the facility and its many conference facilities or follow a treasure map to find all six stations. Everyone from seniors, young adults, to children enjoyed the music and fun was had by all.
This magnificent event called Five Star Experience was held in conjunction of the resorts’ winning marketing campaign Five Star Camping Redefined and their latest large charitable donation giveaway within the valley, which they called Five Star Giveaway.
ICAN, one of the most trusted animal shelters in the Columbia Valley was the recipient of the charitable component of the event where Rohit Group of Companies matched dollar for dollar that was contributed by those in attendance. “Just over $2400.00 was raised and we recommend everyone keep contributing to this important organization,” says Michellene Director of Public Relations and Brand Development. ICAN can use this money towards the land they want to purchase for their shelter.
This event marked the official opening of Copper Point Resort and as an exclusive invitation to see what the resort has become. “This is a success for the entire community and together we all create an irreplaceable value for this Columbia Valley. Rohit Communities has taken great pride in bringing this resort to life and will continue to watch it grow into one of the greatest getaway destinations for generations to come”

Some 250 guests, who had each paid $250 to attend, had a red scarf thrown around their necks and a red dot placed on their foreheads. “The dot is a tikka, a welcome,” said Krishna. “I wanted guests to feel at home in our culture.”

Edmonton, AB June 02, 2011

It is a remarkable feat for any company to defy all odds and prove success is possible during an economic recession. Only a select number of businesses fall into this category and Rohit Group of Companies is one of them.

Ranking Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, the PROFIT 200 profiles the country’s most successful growth companies.

“The PROFIT 200 companies are the innovative, high-growth enterprises Canada needs to compete on the global stage,” says Ian Portsmouth, Editor-in-Chief of PROFIT Magazine. “PROFIT is proud to celebrate their achievements and ambitions, and we encourage all businesspeople to learn more about the many ways they’ve come so far, so fast.”

Since 1986, Rohit Group of Companies has grown from a small home builder in Edmonton to a diversified organization with complementary interests in residential and land development, commercial assets and real estate lending.

Continuing to push the envelope and challenge the conventional is what makes Rohit Group of Companies so successful.

We forged ahead, buying land in preparation for the next surge.”

Gupta has a famous saying within the office – Buy right, and consider half sold. This has been instrumental in the firm’s success and allowed Rohit to expand from its home builder roots with upstream vertical integration; Rohit now has divisions in land development, commercial development, and capital financing.

Rohit Group Owners Climb Mount Kilimanjaro for Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation

Edmonton, Alberta, May 27, 2011 – Having grown their family business, Rohit Group of Companies, from a small home-based company to the diversified organization it is today, Radhe and Krishna Gupta have climbed their share of metaphorical mountains. But that doesn’t seem to be enough for this couple who continues to raise the bar and inspire everyone around them.

Radhe & Krishna are climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for the Royal Alexandra Hospital Foundation. A feat that goes beyond physical accomplishment, the living proof that the opportunity to lead a productive life is possible even after orthopedic surgery. Krishna Gupta, Vice President of Rohit Group of Companies, is a leading example. Having both her knees replaced five years ago, she is thrilled to be a part of this historical moment in the advancement of orthopedic surgery.

“The Orthopedic  Surgery Centre at the Royal Alex will provide enormous benefit to others who have given up hope of enjoying life to its fullest because of injury or deterioration – such as for myself, who not long ago would never in my wildest dreams have entertained attempting this feat,” says Krishna. The climb is in support of the new Orthopedic Surgery Centre in Edmonton.  This advancement in orthopedic surgery will improve patient recovery times and improve the quality of life for those undergoing surgery.

To read more about their decision to climb (it was all Krishna’s idea!) please visit the website http://kilimanjaro.royalalex.org/index.php/climbers/41-krishna-radhe  Donor information is also available.  They are aiming to raise $50,000 for this worthy cause!

Edmonton Home Builder Rohit Communities Partners with Habitat for a Second Time

Edmonton Home Builder Rohit Communities Partners with Habitat for a Second Time

April 29, 2011

Habitat for Humanity is celebrating 20 years in the capital region and Rohit Communities is looking forward to another rewarding partnership. Last year Rohit donated an apartment condominium from its Infusion development in Ambleside, providing a meaningful opportunity for a mother and her son.  For Rohit, providing support to charitable organizations is and always has been a fundamental initiative.

The video from the key ceremony last year can be viewed here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-BYZY57Vbk

 “Originally, we were driven by the fact that our family has been looking at ways to give back to the community. Last year, we felt that it fell under our umbrella, giving a family a chance to get into home ownership,” says Rohit Gupta, CFO of Rohit Group of Companies. The Habitat for Humanity project is directly in line with what we do everyday – building houses for families.”
