Tvm: The Technopark based UST Global has embarked on its largest ever community volunteer effort spanning its centres at Trivandrum, Kochi, Chennai and Bangalore. Starting on October 2, 2010, UST Global associates will reach out to communities providing volunteer help to clean up and beautify designated areas in the cities. The objective is to achieve 25,000 hours of volunteer work across the next two months with several initiatives.
This week, UST Global teams completed a pre-launch beautification programme at the Government Lower Primary School near Technopark in Trivandrum. The event was driven by over 75 associates who worked to remove invasive plants and clean up the grounds. Some of the other activities being planned in Trivandrum are – a programme to clean up the stretch of road starting from Kariavattom campus, near Technopark to Aakkulam bridge; beautification drive at three Government schools at Kattayikkonam, Eenchakkal and Kariyam; and clean up & restoration of an abandoned natural water body at Kariyam.
