The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities has grown tremendously over the last few years. Companies are proactively searching for projects where they can help a social cause & help bring a positive change in the society.
CFTI partners with leading corporates to help them implement their CSR programs in the various domains we work in. Our varied working areas ranging from education to women empowerment makes it convenient for the companies to diverse their funds they allocate for CSR activities.
The school bus is often called ‘an extension of the classroom’. It is an absolute necessity to enable students who stay far and wide to reach the school, especially in the villages. Our students do come from underprivileged backgrounds, which means the only other option to reach school is to walk which is sometimes physically impossible. School buses also offer safety to girls since they travel in the company of their fellow students.
The cost of a school bus is Rs.25 lacs and this would benefit students for over 8 years.
We are seeking a donation of Rs.75 lacs towards the procurement of 3 school buses for 3 schools in remote villages of Raigad.
Science is extremely important in our everyday life. Science results in technology that people rely on for health, communication and transportation. This is especially important in rural India where there is still a vast prevalence of superstitions and old beliefs. Modern new age thinking and exposure will ensure that the generation of tomorrow lives a better life than their parents. Our schools offer the students this exposure via our state of the art fully equipped science labs that allow them to experiment, gauge, measure, watch and learn.
We are seeking a donation of Rs.60 lacs towards the adoption of 4 such labs, one each for Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Computers. The scientists of tomorrow could come from our villages.
At CFTI we took up to this challenge and distributed full-fledged school kits to students from underprivileged background. This way we wanted to ensure that none of these students drop out of their schools due to non-availability of such basis needs.
The Donate a school kit pledge includes the following
