On International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development, P&G India, at its office in Mumbai, hosted an energetic and enthusiastic group of children from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vidyalaya & Junior College, a school in Dhamangaon, Mumbai.
The event was hosted by the employees of the Company and its partners who volunteered in their own unique ways and capacity to spend quality and engaging time with the children. The event also included a host of insightful sessions on specific skills like public speaking and ad-making arranged and volunteered by the Company’s employees and agency partners for the children. Further, during the event, the children and the volunteers came together to play a fun quiz, danced on their favourite tunes, painted their dreams on a canvas and even took a happy stroll around the office. The kids left the premises joyous and inspired to do even better at work and co-curricular activities.
In an endeavour to be a Force for Growth and a Force for Good in the communities, P&G aims to enhance the learning environment for children through critical infrastructural interventions, which in turn support better learning outcomes. In line with this endeavour, the Company built the school in Dhamangaon, together with its implementing partner Round Table India, under its flagship CSR program ‘P&G Shiksha’. The school is equipped with six classrooms, a computer lab, a science lab, a staff room for the teachers, separate toilet blocks for girls and boys and clean drinking water, among other facilities.
Launched in 2005, P&G Shiksha has over time evolved into a holistic education program that aims to improve learning outcomes in children, strengthen educational infrastructure and empower marginalized girls through education. In the journey so far, the Company has built and supported over 2500 schools which will impact more than 23 lakh children in need by improving their learning environment.
