Corporate Social Responsibility
Neesa Group is a responsible corporate citizen and hence remains committed to the idea of contributing to the society. It has consolidated its social responsibility initiative and these are now focused on
» Ameliorative action for the disadvantaged in the neighborhoods in which its business is located
» Work to help the disadvantaged children and women move up in life.
The group has worked out continuing engagement with schools for poor children, run by Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, in Ghatlodia and Vejalpur areas of Ahmedabad. These schools have strength of approximately 500 students each. They offer education up to 8th standard.
The group commenced its work by distributing school bags and stationery kit among 300 new entrants to the two schools in June 2013.
Both schools are finding it difficult to attract and retain teacher for English and computer skill training. The group has taken upon itself the task of finding teacher for these subjects, paying salaries to them and providing oversight to ensure effective teaching. This is the beginning. The group expects to deepen its involvement in these schools, as it gathers better understanding of their needs and ongoing processes.
Beginning with the schools the group envisages extending its reach to less privileged women in Ghatlodia and Vejalpur. It has worked out a blue print to set up a center in each of these areas to impart livelihood-cum-life skills to women. The focus, initially, will be on tailoring and computer skill.
Watch out for the announcement. We shall have these centers becoming operational soon.
