Corporate Social Responsibility
Helping Hands – Steering Goodwill, Together!
SPAN has always been deeply committed to being a responsible corporate firm with adherence to best business practices. Going beyond business to enrich the quality of life of the community in which we operate, SPANites have initiated several educational and local welfare programs, which align our business values and behavior with the expectations and needs of stakeholders.
We are working closely with EDUCAIT, a Non-Profit Charitable Trust, to channelize our CSR initiatives. EDUCAIT manages a wide array of CSR programs that have been identified to help underprivileged children gain access to quality education and infrastructure in local primary schools and government-run schools under the Private-Public Partnership program.
SPAN, along with EDUCAIT, visited the flood-hit areas in Karnataka within 3 days and helped in rehabilitation activities for affected families. The team helped in rehabilitating three families, distributing books and uniforms to two schools and donations to another trust for rebuilding a school.
EDUCAIT Signs Up Adoption of School
The Trust has adopted a government primary school for its upkeep. The school hosts 300+ children in Grades 1-7, and yet, lacks some basic amenities like clean toilets and drinking water facilities. To address the needs for basic infrastructure, the trust has helped and funded several activities.
Electrical Needs of a Primary School
SPAN identified a government primary school in the neighborhood that genuinely required infrastructure support. A couple of SPANites visited the school, made observations and met the staff of the school.
Clothes Donation Campaign
Our old clothes now have a new shelf to be shared. SPAN’s CSR group has created an opportunity for all to extend our happiness to the less fortunate brothers and sisters by donating used / unused clothes in good condition.
“Spread Smiles” Campaign
With the year-ending festive season in 2011, SPAN’s CSR group came up with a noble idea to spread smiles and bring joy to the kids of the Bidadi government school.
Fund Raising Activities
Apart from the regular CSR initiatives, a couple of closed-circle fund raising activities were carried out by SPANites to help a few needy staff members in the last one year.
Other CSR Activities
SPAN also carries out several other CSR activities such as supporting UNICEF programs, blood donation camps, notebook distribution, distributing stationery for the orphanages, and promoting green practices through monthly magazines.
