Because we are part of a worldbeyond our business
STT GDC has partnered with Tata Trusts (one of the pioneers of philanthropy in India), to become a part of their Lakhpati Kisaan objective launched in 1980. With a focus on the central belt of India, specifically Gujarat, this program aims to cover 200 tribal households and to bring about changes such as better irrigation facilities, better livestock management and promoting cultivating high-value produce.
Our aim here is to ensure that we achieve INR 1.5 Lakh as an additional income for the households registered with us.
The year that went by has brought in revenue growth for us and we have ensured that every penny earned by us has seen a share of it contributed for the larger cause of building a more integrated and sustainable society.
We have partnered with HelpAge India in order to fund for a better life for the disadvantaged senior citizens. Last year we also organized an Intergenerational Walkathon that saw a tremendous response and over 600 enrolments. The other aspect of this program is to train the caregivers. The training program aims to create better caregivers out of segments such as unemployable youth, single mothers, widows and school drop-outs, by providing them with the best Geriatric care training. These trained individuals are then allocated jobs via reputed home agencies and hospitals.
We have trained 195 individuals till now and over 60% of them have decided to continue with this profession. Owing to this training, they are able to earn 20% more than the Indian per capita income and hence can provide for their families better.
In Mar’18 STT GDC India partnered with Samaveshi Sanchar (renowned NGO in Delhi-NCR) to undertake a skill-building program for citizens (youth and adults) of marginalized communities. The aim was to make them self-sufficient but also to inculcate a sense of giving back to society. One of the major highlights here was exclusive training on Computer Aided Learning (CAL) and CBFL (Computer based functional learning) to encourage young entrepreneurship.
Since its inception, over 3,000 students have been initiated on the path of digital literacy while 600 adults have received basic literacy training along with the computer know-how. The most significant achievement till now has been the rise of 12 young entrepreneurs making them self-sufficient basis the digital literacy we provided.
