GHCL Foundation Trust, the CSR arm of GHCL Limited, has adopted five MCD schools situated in the South Delhi Zone as a part of its CSR initiatives. The purpose is to support the work being done by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) and provide assistance in the maintenance and upkeep of these schools.
Well-maintained schools with clean and organized spaces help the children to form positive associations and motivate them to come to school. The MCD schools cater to the children of marginalized communities living in Delhi and provide them with quality education and opportunities for growth and development. Ensuring better upkeep and maintenance, of these schools is a step in the right direction to enhance the impact of these schools.
With experience in maintaining schools in rural areas of Gujarat, GHCL Foundation is supplementing the government’s efforts towards maintenance and upkeep of the schools located in Block 28, Trilokpuri, Block 7, 16 & 19, Kalyanpuri and Mandavali 1. Earlier this year members of GHCL Foundation visited the schools along with MCD staff and identified various areas of improvement. In the past few months, a lot of work has been completed which has changed the ambiance of these schools and infused positive energy in the students. The Foundation has initiated civil work, painting, plumbing, electrical, and furniture repair, and beautification through educational wall paintings.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. R S Jalan, MD GHCL Limited said, “At GHCL, it is our endeavor to improve lives in and around our areas of operations. We believe that better health, education as well as better livelihood opportunities form the basis of a developed nation and we are glad that we can contribute in various ways. Children are India’s future. Providing better infrastructure and a clean and positive environment in schools is essential and a basic requirement for their holistic development. We are glad for this opportunity to contribute towards making these schools centers of quality education.”
