Saksham Sarthi’s CSR Activities:

Namasyaa

To make a social cause, a social movement, it is very important to sensitize & mobilize the public. In the effort to do the same, a two-day exhibition was hosted under the brand of “Namasya”. Saksham Sarthi came live through the branded Namasya articles like candles, florals, articrafts, utility items and other decorative pieces, which were exhibited for sale. The objective is to channelize the profit earned for social & developmental purpose.

Prameya

Saksham Sarthi initiated out Knowledge sharing activities under the name of “Prameya” which stands for Knowledge in Sanskrit. The first activity came as a Knowledge sharing platform for the Housekeeping, helpers, support staff, drivers of Teamglobal & other corporates of Times Square. Forty participants attended this session; which was hosted in association with a NGO “Shamal”. The session on Financial Awareness like Government policies, saving accounts, Investment schemes and other government schemes, which are Accident & Life Insurance, Pension, PPF, Scheme for the Girl Child, Loans etc. extended time to time.

Joy of Giving Season

This was to celebrate both giving & receiving for themselves and their family. Team members put forth 156 wishes on the Wish tree and the company granted the same and some benevolent employees also sponsored some of gifts as well.

Association with NGO’s

In pursuit of the corporate social responsibility, Teamglobal registered its Trust “Saksham Sarthi” under The Maharashtra Public Trust Act 1950 & Indian Income Tax Act 1961. To work with the society at the grassroots level the NGO’s working in the area of Education, Street Children, Women & children Empowerment & Vocational Trainings were sought after. After a rigorous assessment & analysis of nearly 20 NGO’s, a search committee consulting the Trustees of Trust & Teamglobal’s HR Team, finally zeroed down upon following 02 NGO’s for association.

  1. Asha Sadan – engaged in caring and development of abandoned and less privileged girl child & women. Established in the year 1962, for over 90 years, this non-governmental organisation has brought like-minded women together in the service of others, to help tackle social and medical problems faced by poor women and children in the city.
  2. Aasara – engaged in upliftment of street children. Established in the year 1996 with a mission to bring meaning in the lives of street children by providing various needs-based services to develop their inherent talent and re-integrate them back to society.

Asha Sadan was extended support by sponsoring Desktops and providing for livelihood for 175 beneficiaries for a period of 6 months.

The camp witnessed enthusiastic donors – with donors from Teamglobal fraternity as well as other Corporates from Times Square Building and collected 75 units of blood.

The enthusiastic donors were willing to donate blood to serve to the needs of the patience and the camp witnessed many others who came forward to donate yet because of medical reasons were not allowed. Teamglobal has been hosting such activities for the last 05 years.

To combat this Teamglobal has taken a novel step, by tying up with E-Ward and Co it is ensured that the disposal of the Hazardous E-Waste is done in an Environmental Friendly manner.

Our Future Action Plans

To further extend the philanthropic activities we have chalked down our Futuristic action plan as under:

  1. Extending the scope of Saksham Sarthi to other Branches, who will project interest to volunteer for the same.
  2. Getting associated with other related NGO’s / Association and social institutions, which are related to the objectives of Saksham Sarthi.
  3. Enhancing the number of TGites to volunteer for the program.
