Project Description

 

The Company has spent some amount of money in three different projects.
Ethtiyat: This is a development program for truck drivers aimed at improving their on-road driving behaviour. India has one of the highest numbers of people dying because of road accidents many of which are the result of involvement of truck drivers. To address this issue, we launched a holistic development program – Sarathi Mitra for truck drivers that will enable with them defensive driving techniques and multiple interventions for betterment of their lives. 
Eklavya: This Program aims to help independent two-wheeler mechanics, who have limited access to technical education, to enhance their skills and technical knowledge resulting in a better opportunity for livelihood. The last decade has witnessed rapid changes in vehicle technology. Eklavya recognizes the need to keep independent mechanics abreast of the fast-changing technology and changing customer demand patterns to stay relevant and improve their source of livelihood.  This training programme is designed in a format that continues to allow the mechanics to earn while building awareness and gaining an understanding of the new technology. 
EKJUT: In the communities around Plants at Silvassa, Patalganga and Paharpur, Company continue to have multiple interventions for the betterment of women, children and youth. In the current year Company conducted in-depth aptitude test and provide career counselling to high school students. Guidance for competitive exams and scholarship opportunities were also provided.   2300 students were benefited under this programme. Company also continued to support computer education in local school at Rakholi and providing financial support to the school run by the local Red Cross Society for differently abled children. Company provided electrical and automotive training to youth, digital embroidery, beauty therapy and bedside assistance training to women.
