KONE India CSR, currently operates in rural villages around Sriperumbudur and Tiruvallur districts in Tamil Nadu giving primacy to the most marginalised. Our interventions were designed in close consultation with the communities after an extensive needs assessment of the target groups. Our scope of the CSR initiatives covers the following areas
Education: Our vision towards education is to bring smiles to lesser privileged children by providing a quality learning environment. Currently, we work in 20 villages around Sriperumbudur and Tiruvallur districts for an “After School Education” program partnering with Single Teacher Schools – A Unit of Swami Vivekananda Rural Developmet Society.that benefits 610 students. Students are provided after school coaching to enable them to cope with the demands of the syllabus at school. Also, students who have dropped out are prepared to join a specific grade level based on their age. Each school is run by a single teacher who takes classes between 5 - 8 PM every day. The focus is on English, Maths, Environmental Science & Tamil and the Students are also taught yoga. This project is being implemented by Swami Vivekananda Rural Development Society. Nearly 610 children were provided with free basic primary education. 20 village women were provided with employment opportunities through this project. In a yet another initiative, KONE India has a tie up with Sevalaya – (a registered charitable Trust with activities in villages around Thiruvallur and Kancheepuram district.) through which we plan to provide educational support to underprivileged children and operational support to orphanage homes.
