In our stride to be a responsible corporate citizen which goes beyond the traditional role of doing business, at Exide we have adopted Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) as an integral part of our core organizational strategy to contribute and add value to our immediate and larger communities.
Our CSR activities revolve around the main pillars of our CSR philosophy within the
focus areas of Children & Education, Health & Sanitation, Environment, Women Empowerment and Rural/Community Development.
In response to the community needs, the CSR engagements further built on our enduring commitment to contribute towards a balanced, responsible society by supporting inclusive and long-term sustainable growth at local, regional and national levels.
Healthcare and sanitation have been our core focus areas for social investment at the national level. Our long-standing projects that have been providing sustainable healthcare benefits to numerous beneficiaries were implemented through the following -
Over the years, our teams have been relentlessly putting in their dynamic efforts to fructify the community's needs and aspirations in the sphere of education. Our main endeavor is to ensure every child in the communities neighbouring our manufacturing units has access to basic education and quality education infrastructure. This is a part of the larger objective of creating value through facilitating education in the society at large through extensive work and various collaborative projects.
Girl child and women oriented projects remains at the core of our CSR interventions as gender parity takes the front stage when it comes to making provisions for any empowerment initiatives.
Hence, this year too we were extremely contended to continue with the livelihood and entrepreneurship enhancement programme for women from the tribal villages around our plant in Maharashtra which helps to usher in economic and social empowerment for the beneficiaries.
Free School Bus Project
Availing regular and safe transportation to schools and colleges are an ordeal for most of the girl children and young women from economically challenged background irrespective of where they are located. The challenging situation is an equal reality both in remote villages as well as in the suburban areas of larger cities.
The free School Bus project was an empowerment initiative that got introduced this year to ply girl children and young women from a few neighboring villages and sub urban locations at two of our operation areas. The project recuperated regular attendance for the students and also helped to revive a School which was almost on the verge of closing down due to lack of admissions.
Along with the investment and focused team efforts, our social commitment also extends deep into our corporate culture through employee volunteering programmes which embody our special legacy of service for the greater community.
The scope of individually touching lives of the less privileged ones and contribute towards their sustainable development is wholeheartedly recognized by our employees backed by our leadership team.
We strongly resonate with what Gandhi once said "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others".
Our employee volunteers engaged in nurturing and empowerment sessions to boost up the morale of the differently abled female residents of Cheshire Home, Kolkata Unit and the girl students from our partnering Government School in south Kolkata. The engagement sessions generated heartwarming smiles along with a great sense of gratitude, inclusiveness and empowerment for all.
