Engaged Learning in the Renovated School Building
The public elementary school in Sandegoundenpalayam was completely renovated and modernized as part of the ARGO-HYTOS Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. 35 students from grades one to five are now studying in an engaged environment.
“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.“
That is the famous quote by the late South African politician and activist Nelson Mandela. General Manager at ARGO-HYTOS in India, Shrikant Bairagi, stays true to this motto and has gotten involved with a school located near the Coimbatore plant in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The building was completely refurbished with funds from the ARGO-HYTOS Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. The bright and open rooms are now equipped with good ventilation as well as a modern smart TV and audio system.
The next step is to introduce a renovated kitchen and a new water purification system to ensure that the school is up to date with adequate hygiene standards. The students receive school uniforms, bags and bottles for free as well as toys that encourage motivation. Good performances are rewarded with certificates and medals.
“The smiles on the faces of the happy children are priceless,” says Shrikant Bairagi as he announces the involvement of an additional sponsoring project in another school in Kovilpalayam.
