Education and environment drive at Ganesh Vidya Mandir
Associated with Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT)
Shree Ganesh Vidya Mandir is a Marathi medium primary school located in Dharavi and the children studying in this school are from Dharavi. There are around 150 Scheduled Caste or Scheduled Tribe children who have little or no access to other schools so this initiative was well received by the school.
The purpose of this outreach program’s constant endeavor is to simultaneously promote importance of saving water and conservation of natural resources. There was an innovative workshop held which was engaging for the children. They were donated with notebooks, pencil sets, light snacks as a part of the program.
Sajiv Nath, MD, Endress+Hauser, India talking about the initiative says, “We believe that education for the masses will shape a better India for tomorrow. This is an initiative we at Endress+Hauser strongly believe in. This distinctive awareness drive reflects Endress+Hauser's social responsibility efforts where promotion of education and saving natural resources one of them being water falls under its strategic accomplishments.
We have given precedence to building creative partnership between the masses, youth and corporates. We are hopeful that the initiative must have benefitted in creating the required awareness which has given an impetus to a new vision in water management and conservation in the country."
