Supporting children from low income groups
Our partnerships with The Akanksha Foundation, Life Trust for their ‘Joy in a Box’ initiative, Udhavum Ullangal Illam, and activities for Nethaji Mercy Home (during festival season) have positively impacted the lives of children from low-income group communities.
To promote education among under privileged children, we had also associated with the NGO, Ritinjali, for a unique fund raising Golf Tournament for one of their initiatives, the Second Chance School in Mahipalpur. The school attempts to educate urban, deprived young adults through vocational training, apprenticeships and job oriented skills in order to mainstream them into the society.

Conservation of natural resources
As part of our initiative to support conservation of natural resources, we have tied up with Deshpande Foundation/Kakatiya Sandbox for the Farm Pond Project. Initiated in 2014 by the Foundation, Neer Sinchina is a program that helps farmers engage in sustainable agricultural practices involving rainwater conservation and harvesting. This program has been especially helpful in facilitating irrigation in drought-prone areas with erratic rainfall. By improving access to water, farmers can now cultivate more than one crop a year thereby increasing their revenue by 50%. Farm Pond initiative not only help farmers fight drought, but also enables their own agricultural extension by providing access to skills, tools, inputs and knowledge they need to thrive. As part of this initiative, 43 farm ponds have been constructed in rural areas of Telangana where they can harvest and store water in farm ponds sized 60 X 50 X 12 cubic ft.
