Project Description

“Gifting every child a healthier tomorrow” is the ethos behind the Child Health Development Program (CHDP) run by Bosch Limited. Company's focus is to determine and improve the health conditions of children studying in government schools between 6 and 15 years of age. As part of this program, Bosch has adopted 230 government schools, which are located within 30 km radius of its Bangalore, Bidadi and Kumbalgod Plant facilities. In 2010, a community survey was carried out by Bosch in and around its Plant location in Bangalore. This survey revealed the need for a dedicated initiative to help improve and maintain the good health condition of children studying in government schools following which the CHDP was launched. Currently, 42000 students are being benefited through this program. Bosch conducts free health diagnostic camps at the government schools it has adopted, which provide complete health screening of all the children by a team of general physicians, paediatricians, ophthalmologists and pedodontic dentists. Company also provide basic treatment for children who are in need of dental scaling, vision checks, and provision of spectacles and issue of eye drops, ear drops and general medicine. Check-ups are repeated annually for all the children. Medical camps, follow-up and treatment including surgeries for school children, hands on training in science, life skill, computer/English education and Infrastructure development in schools. The company has spent some amount of money for setting Computer Labs in the Schools with software, AMC, Tables, Chairs, UPS and a Computer Teacher, Simulating Science teaching through ‘Mobile Science Lab’, ‘Lab in a Box’ and ‘Lab on a Bike’, providing exclusive English teachers for Spoken English classes and interactive learning kits, training on soft skills and life skills through Value Education program. The Company has spent some amount in Model School Concept for upgrading infrastructure & education quality in Government school. Bosch has identified government schools that lack clean and separate toilet facilities for boys and girls. Bosch has not only funded the construction of 50 new toilets at these schools, but also facilitated water-line and sewage connections for them to become functional. All these new toilets receive maintenance oversight from Bosch for the first 6 months after construction. Besides, dysfunctional toilets are made functional. Company also go a step further in inculcating the requisite hygiene behavior among students for them to do their bit in keeping the toilets tidy and usable at all times for their own benefit. Nashik Run is the biggest community run in India with 20,000 people in participation every year. Nashik Run was organised by Bosch and other corporates in 2003 to bring about a change in the lives of the economically backward, by raising funds for their livelihood in the district, which had witnessed an increase in the number of underprivileged at the grass roots level. Projects the event funds include shelters for the aged, women, orphans, providing training for the intellectually challenged, visually impaired and also, skilling the less capable. Check Dams are being constructed to reduce velocity of water thereby reducing erosion. This is a neighborhood Bosch CSR project initiated by Nashik Plant management. Already 7 Check Dams are operational. Initiated by the Jaipur Plant, RO plants provide clean and safe drinking water to the villagers. Built and maintained by Bosch, so far, 8 RO plants have been built that benefit 4,000 families.
