Kochi: As part of a concerted CSR initiative, the IT Professionals of UST Global based at Infopark Kochi reached out to the less privileged ones in the society on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. UST Global, the Technopark based leading IT Company, had earlier announced a series of community volunteer work across their centres in India.
About 65 employees from the Kochi centre of UST Global turned up at the Children’s Home for Girls at Kakkanad near Infopark for a cleaning mission. The home provides more than 50 children with shelter, food and education. The Children’s Home authorities had put forward a request to help clean-up their large campus. Three hours of toil saw the techies clearing off weeds and thick foliage. They also planted 25 saplings around the Children’s Home. After the clean up, the employees interacted with children and spent some quality time with them talking, singing and distributing sweets.
Ashish Kamani, an UST employee said, “I was fortunate to get an opportunity to help the society through my company. I cannot express my feelings in words. Every child is special and he or she deserves to achieve his growth and dreams in a healthy surrounding. While we cannot change the whole world, whatever we do from our heart will make a small impact.”
Earlier, the Leadership Team from the Kochi Centre also took time off to go to Asha Bhavan, a home for mentally cured persons in Kakkanad. The hard work of these strategic leaders was displayed to the fore when they transformed the bushy and grassy backyard of the Asha Bhavan into a clean turf. Cleaning the yard and then levelling the backyard with a truck load of sand with shovels and spades in hand, the leaders took up the task with single minded focus, showcasing their larger than life attribute of simplicity and togetherness in their commitment to synergize for a noble cause. The inmates too joined the effort as they could not resist what looked like fun at work. The effort concluded by the team distributing sweets to all the inmates of Asha Bhavan.
