Our responsibility towards building a sustainable future finds expression in many forms. While we solve complex challenges for the industries we serve, we create more equity and joy in society through our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. Enhancing life and learning opportunities for Children is critical to sustainability. We support multiple projects to make Education more accessible.
We are humbled by the opportunity to support the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (UNSDG) through our partnership with Katakhali Swapnopuron Welfare Society, Kolkata. Katakhali runs a school (English medium) at Hingalganj (North 24 Parganas, West Bengal) and 5 early education centers. Efforts are made to provide education and facilities in keeping with recommendations 1-6 of UNSDG. It gives us joy to add a floor to the school building and create opportunities for Children to continue with their education here till the 12th standard.
Our engagement is not limited to funding the construction – including computer centre and play area. We are part of the empowerment process by enhancing quality of education through Education Empowerment Program.
Our partnership with Kathakali helps us to renew our commitment to make our community stronger.
We care for our community by making it stronger. Education empowers and we at Tega create opportunities for accessible education as a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) priority. Tega Education Foundation supports multiple initiatives across India to make Education more engaging for young learners and teachers.
A recent project covering 3 schools in Duttapukur (a village in the vicinity of Kolkata) offers a wonderful example of a humble initiative can create meaningful impact in times such as the recent pandemic. While it may not be realizable to many, it is sufficiently established through research that the socio-cultural-economic impact of children losing access to education can be devastating for a society. Not allowing time to run idle during the pandemic, Tega Education Foundation has facilitated a series of workshops in October 2020 for awareness building and skill enhancement for teachers in these schools. The objective was to come up with effective mechanisms of delivering education amidst the challenging circumstances. The workshops were conducted in collaboration with @Learners Confluence. So far, 4 sessions have been hosted for training the teachers.
The workshops fulfilled a dual purpose - to utilize the time productively and not let the pandemic slow down the learners and the teachers, bridge existing skill gaps and make room for heightened awareness and deeper insights for the teachers.
The Training workshops helped to beat the Pandemic blues and bring back energy and positivity into the schools.
