Bhandari Automobiles believes that CSR should bring about sustainable living through helping the needy and giving everyone a chance to Excel. After all the company’s moto is “Ensuring Excellence”. At the company each employee has the unique opportunity to be part of the CSR activity where they learn to give back to the society.

Based on our theme this year three key areas were selected where we would be conducting activities: Health, Under-privileged children and veterans of the society. Each activity that was conducted had only one motto- Ensure the person can excel in his life.

We conducted 6 Health camps checking for diabetes, eye sight and heart. A total of 550 people were diagnosed and prescribed medicines. These medicines were subsidised by the company so that the individual could start his journey on a healthy lifestyle.

Apart from this we supported 8 under privilege schools which have about 150 students each through equipment, stationery, school bus or a visit to the science park as per their requirements. There is no bigger joy then educating the young and our chairman through the Rotary youth fund sponsored 15 under privilege children for higher education in leading engineering colleges of India. We even organised a cricket match between the company team and Future Hope. Future hope is a NGO that has children from the streets who are educated in the school.

Veterans or our elders have always been our guiding light and we at Bhandari took it upon ourselves to share some joy with them. This year we have visited 4 old age homes where we organised an evening of games along with serving them dinner. We have also donated a total of 50 wheel chairs to the under privileged adults in the society.

Lastly we took part in the “Run for education” marathon which was organised by round table India to raise money for building schools for children where there is no infrastructure. Bhandari has helped raise 1 lac for the endeavor and 200 of our employees took part in this initiative. We hope the school will bring out the best in the Sundarban area which is suffering from acute need of infrastructure.

Apart from this we have donated two Ambulance, one school bus and two cars to NGOs that have been doing great work in giving the under privileged the chance to Excel. Our moto Ensuring Excellence is a great driving force and we look to continue to develop further on these three areas.

We hope to further extend our CSR in the areas chosen by us. In addition we would be training the unskilled and facilitate getting him a better livelihood so that he may Excel in life.
