Under the umbrella of “enabling quality education”, the focus is on imparting holistic education, preferably through usage of technology apart from catering to adequate infrastructural facilities, access to education and improvement of education systems, which are clearly measurable in impact assessments. The gamut of interventions mainly for the needy and underprivileged population should lead to improved literacy and education in its true sense which can enable the target group to aspire for higher education and eventually sustainable livelihoods. In other words, we wish to create wholesome educational environment rather than just spending money merely for buildings, furniture etc.
Our water conservation efforts are closely linked to engaging communities within their own eco systems & making them self-reliant. This also includes making available safe drinking water, technology for creation of infrastructure related to fresh water generation, meaningful utilisation of the water resources, regeneration of water bodies and such allied interventions. Training in improved agricultural practices and technologies will also form a part of this focus area.
This includes creating / supporting basic as well as advanced health interventions based on a thematic approach whereby the amounts spent cater to large targeted population of needy and underprivileged with or without infrastructural support. The themes could be illustratively eradication / minimisation of anaemia, malnutrition, maternal and infant mortalities, catering to disabilities of various kinds etc.
Through our Skill Development interventions, with or without infrastructural support, we aim to bring about economic development by creating self- sustainability in deserving populations such as women, unemployed youth and people with disability as well as Skill Development activities involving creation of livelihood opportunities through traditional vocations which are indigenous to various geographical locations of the country such as handloom weaving etc. Our Skill Development focus is largely on certification as per the Qualification Packs aligned to the National Skill Qualification Framework as given by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.
These initiatives are a collection of targeted interventions, both short term and long, in the villages near our business units and in remote rural areas where there are specific needs which must be met .This essentially stands for integrated projects spanning all, or a combination of, the above four domain areas ranging from integrating infrastructure needs with livelihood opportunities to improving access to drinking water, promoting access to quality healthcare, education, thereby improving the quality of life of the community as a whole.
