Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR)

Our CSR programs are broadly divided into the categories of Health and wellness, Environmental Sustainability, Education. As an example, in partnership with the Akshaya Patra Foundation, our flagship CSR programme sponsors free and healthy breakfast to over 9100 students from 66 government-run schools. The inaugural phase of this scheme will be up to April 2022. The Foundation has also provided teaching staff; and funds for construction of infrastructure in government schools. Apart from education, some government schools in our neighborhood have been adopted and provided with much-needed infrastructure like classrooms, toilets, drinking water facilities, and kitchens.

We also run a pilot ‘community cattle center‘ in Telangana, with centralized nurturing and medical facilities for the cattle. The scope of the center includes processing of animal dung into manure and vermi-compost. For Empowerment of Rural Women, we have distributed sewing machines; and, constructed old age and orphanage homes.

Plans are on the anvil for comprehensive health plans for Socio-Economically Challenged Children; eye check-up including surgeries and more. In the wake of Covid-19, we have contributed to various relief funds, distributed grocery stocks, cooked meals, sanitizers, masks, etc. We will also endeavor to help schools opt for online classes with infrastructure such as computers, video cameras, etc.
