Project Financial review

Jain Vishva Bharati London (JVBL) was able to complete the purchase a property to serve as a Centre for the charity’s activities for c.£1m plus costs of c.£40k in the Harrow area in August 2018. The property purchased is named as “Jain World Peace Centre” and was inaugurated on 22-23 Sept 2018.
