As a responsible corporate towards the society, General Motors Technical Center India (GMTC-I) in 2011 took it on itself to ensure education for the students of Gunjur Government School in Bangalore. GMTC-I raised funds for the school which was utilized towards providing infrastructural support along with ensuring adequate nutrition to the children of the school.
As part of GMâ€™s commitment to corporate social responsibility, a yearly fund raising activity is undertaken to sponsor school kits which includes school bags, school shoes, stationery etc. for the students. The objective is to ensure that the basic requisites of students are met from time to time so that parents are encouraged to send their children to study rather than sending them to work at a tender age. Continuing with its initiatives towards this noble cause, this year GMTC-I will distribute the school kits to the school in June 2014 hence ensuring that the students get their new kits at the start of the academic year.
As part of CSR, GMTC-I aims to make education accessible to majority of the children in surrounding localities from underprivileged sections of society. GMTC-I has a committee of active employees who volunteer to host learning sessions, teach English and conduct science experiments for these children. The committee also organizes student visits to GMTC-I, hosts sporting events and fun learning events.
Apart from this GMTC-I also recently distributed indestructible One World Futbols to the students of Gunjur Government School which coincided with the annual sports day celebrations of the school.
