For a company dominated by qualified engineers working on cutting edge technology, we at Isgec more than understand the importance of education and the transformative power that it holds. We believe that to bring about equality and balance in society, the first and most critical step is to ensure that today’s youth have access to education.
As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility initiative, we at Isgec have been focusing all our efforts on bringing about improvements in this field. We realize that to get overall results, one has to first look at the basics, and when we did, we had our task cut out for us. It was disheartening to see lack of basic infrastructure becoming a hindrance in the aspirations of young children in schools. There was enough and more work that needed to be done and we got down to it. We decided to work towards improving the infrastructure of schools in and around our places of work. And there were many.
The work undertaken under the Isgec-Connect initiative, over the years, includes extensive renovation of schools that were in a very bad shape, as well as providing basic amenities such as black boards, seating arrangements, drinking water and toilet facilities to very many other schools. These are just a few examples of the activities taken up so far, with many more in the pipeline.
We understand that our efforts are but a drop in the ocean when it comes to issues that prevail in today’s world, but it is still gratifying to know that our efforts are making a difference in the lives of at least a few children. At Isgec, we have resolved to do whatever is necessary to engineer positive change in this field, even if it is one school, one child at a time. Only then will we be living up to our motto that aptly captures our striving for excellence.
During our CSR related visits to the various schools, we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to interact with many bright young children. We decided to capture some of their exuberance and share it with all of you by dedicating this year’s calendar to their creativity, their works of art. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
