Education

We continue to empower children within communities, encouraging them to pursue education with holistic learning. We have launched a first-of-its-kind ‘Free Breakfast Scheme’ for nearly 9,100 children of 66 government-run schools around our manufacturing facilities in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam, partnering with the Akshaya Patra Foundation.

We have served nearly 557,000 breakfast meals up to March 2020, when the scheme had to be suspended on account of the COVID-19 lockdown when schools closed down.

As schools remained closed during the pandemic, we have distributed 'Happiness Boxes’ to students through their teaching / support staff. The Happiness Boxes contained nutrition, education and hygiene components. We distributed 32,000 Happiness Boxes during the year.

When government schools in Telangana cautiously reopened for a brief period in early 2021, we have distributed over 16,500 ‘Swasth Saala’ (sanitisation) kits comprising non-invasive thermometers, solution dispensers, face-masks, water bottles, gloves and caps at 110 government schools of Medchal-Malkajgiri District, to help children follow adequate safety precautions.

We are funding the construction of infrastructure for government schools, aiding the construction of additional classrooms, kitchens, dining halls, toilets, etc. It also provides trained teachers to improve the quality of education of underprivileged students.

Covid-Relief Efforts

The unforeseen countrywide lockdown induced by the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 traumatised innumerable slum-dwellers and daily-wage earners by forcing them out of work, leaving them clueless as to when and where they would get their next meal. During those extremely difficult times, Gland Pharma distributed thousands of ‘dry ration’ bags, each containing packets of rice, dal, sugar, oil, potatoes, onions, tamarind, etc. The Company also served cooked food to thousands of migrant workers and other underprivileged residents of slums and villages. We have also provided N-95 face masks to doctors, hospital staff, healthcare workers and police personnel battling COVID-19 at great risk to themselves, as well as to students and other sections of the public. Gland Pharma also handed over 22,400 grocery packets to the underprivileged and underserved.
