Disha, the womenâ€™s council founded by the female employees of GM India Headquarters at Gurgaon, recently made an effort to educate and help children who do not have means to proper education. Members from the team took it upon themselves, not only to teach the students of Sankalp School, but also cleaned and washed the classrooms as a kind gesture.
Apart from these efforts, Team Disha put up banners and posters regarding road safety and traffic rules inside each classroom and also placed wall-clocks in them. In all these activities, they were enthusiastically supported by Sankalp, an NGO working to give underprivileged children a chance to become successful in life.
Commenting on the initiative, President and MD, GM India, Mr. Lowell Paddock said, â€œAs part of society, it is very important that we develop sensitivities towards such grave issues faced by others and make contributions as per our capabilities for the betterment of the underprivileged members of our society. Children are the future and itâ€™s our duty to nurture them and educate them so that tomorrow we have a more enlightened and healthy society.â€
GM India has been involved in a number of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities since its establishment. These include renovating and repairing shelters and houses for the economically challenged, hosting road safety awareness programs, mobility and philanthropy-related activities, community development programs, AIDS awareness drives and others in and around the plants at Talegaon and Bangalore.
We, at Chevrolet, are proud of Disha and together promise to keep working so that the less fortunate have a brighter tomorrow.
