Education is not only about studying and scoring good marks, it’s about learning and discovering all we weren’t aware of to increase our knowledge. Keeping this thought in mind, HDFC Life extended its CSR initiative, Swabhimaan, to SOS Children’s Villages of India; a non-profit, non-government, organization, committed to foster orphan and homeless children.
The project supports the education of 300 vulnerable children in four locations including Kolkata, Guwahati, Bhubaneshwar and Rourkela.
Apart from providing financial support, the project also has a holistic engagement involving HDFC Life employees and customers. The company engages with children of SOS India’s projects to build capacities in areas of financial literacy and hoslistic development. We also plan to create awareness about the cause with the customers.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Amitabh Chaudhry, MD & CEO, HDFC Life said, “As a brand that strongly believes in self respect through financial independence, our CSR effort’s core theme is Financial Literacy so that we can build a society of self dependent and financially literate individuals.”
In response to the initiative, Mr Rakesh Jinsi, Secretary General, SOS Children’s Villages of India, said, “Long term care provided to abandoned and parentless kids by SOS Children’s Villages needs sustained support, especially from corporate partners. The gift of knowledge and education is the best we can give to our children, which will come back to us in the form of a better next-generation. I thank HDFC Life for partnering with SOS India to help us achieve sustained development for children.”
Mr. Ghag joined HDFC Life in September 2009 and has been spearheading the Human Resource function since then. Before HDFC Life, he was associated with DHL Express as Head of HR for India and Senior Advisor - Quality and Processes (First Choice Programme) for South Asia.
