Drive by Markelytics on World Literacy Day
 

Markelytics Solutions unveiled a literacy empowerment drive at Government Model Primary School, Hosahalli on the occasion of World Literacy Day. It was a joint initiative by the company & its employees, wherein a delegate of Markelytics Solutions visited the school and spoke to teachers & students at length about the need for education and its benefits apart from distributing books and other stationery items. As an employee engagement activity, volunteering was a success.

To ensure every student knows the right aspects of life from a young age, Markelytics Solutions donated books in Kannada on National Leaders, National Festivals, moral and motivational storybooks to the library of this school. A common finding by employees of the company when they were on a recce to Government schools in the vicinity was the need for students to be exposed to better mediums of education to improve their vocabulary in English. Using this insight, the company also stocked the library with dictionaries to help students understand the meaning of Kannada words in English. The employees altogether collected 500+ books, notebooks, stationary items in total.

Shruthi, a class V student of the school said “I’m so happy to have notebooks, pens, geometry box, crayons received from the drive. It now helps me organise notes for each subject that we have.” The team of Markelytics present at the event spoke to most of the students, and they were amazed to see their energy and enthusiasm. Rachan, Associate Director- HR, said, “We’re happy to contribute to the school. Unfortunately, we could not cover all the schools, but it would be great if we see more organizations taking up this initiative and helping students of at least one school in their vicinity. Our unified efforts will go a long way in building a better future for these kids and the society as a whole.”
