KPIT CSR Initiative - School Kit Drive

Chhote Scientists
School Kit Drive
An attempt to reduce school dropouts
Background
We have been working with Seva Sahayog, an umbrella organization of various NGOs, for the last five years. Seva Sahyog conducted a survey to identify the reasons behind students dropping out of the schools. One of the key reasons that came to light was the issue of affordability. The families were not able to afford the basic things needed for their children’s education, such as books, school bags etc. In collaboration with Seva Sahyog, KPIT spearheaded School Kit donation drive wherein the employees contributed funds and manpower to support education of over 40,000 underprivileged children.
In the year 2015 - 2016, 1,200 employees participated and donated 3,500 school kits. Another fun-filled part of this drive is the assembly of the school kits. The whole process included checking the quality of the bags, assembling and final quality check of the packed school kits. The activity consists of putting everything together, and making sure that the bag is ready for delivery. Around 200 employees along with their families participated in this drive this year. In 2014-2015, 1,371 employees participated and donated 3,300 kits. In 2013-2014, 845 employees participated helping 2000 kids. In 2012-2013, 1262 employees participated in the drive which benefited 3182 kids.
Impact
As per the feedback received from Seva Sahyog, there has been a tremendous decrease in school dropout ratio in rural, urban and tribal areas where we are delivering our kits.
