Under the banner of its core value, “Being Responsible”, Egis extended its support for the second year by enriching the schooling experience at NeeV. This commitment extends to improving infrastructure, delivering expert consultancy services and providing essential academic resources. Additional initiatives at the center, such as an internal book donation drive have equipped the center with necessary educational materials and stationery.

Recognizing the critical importance of access to quality, affordable education, Egis’ initiatives at NeeV aim to cultivate a comprehensive educational environment where over 450 students and 43 facilitators can thrive. This holistic approach not only focuses on academic achievement, but also on developing crucial skills such as leadership, communication, and teamwork – all vital for success in the 21st century.

Sandeep Gulati, Managing Director – India & South Asia, Egis, said, “At Egis Group, were committed to expanding our community engagement and CSR efforts to foster a brighter future. The lack of sufficient infrastructure stands out as a significant factor contributing to school dropouts in India. Given these challenges, its imperative for all of us to come together and devise a comprehensive plan to enhance infrastructure and facilities in schools. Quality education acts as a crucial catalyst for children to unlock their full potential, which is fundamental for the socio-economic advancement of the nation. Through schooling, children not only gain academic knowledge but also develop crucial skills such as leadership, communication, and collaboration, vital for succeeding in the 21st century and were delighted to renew our support for NeeV for the second consecutive year.”

Dr. Shalini Malhotra, NeeV, commented, “Sustainable and lasting societal transformation hinges on the quality of academic development. We are immensely thankful to Egis for their relentless support in helping us build a nurturing environment so that underprivileged students are empowered to continue with their education, helping them envision a bright future for themselves and their loved ones.”

In addition to educational initiatives, Egis is actively engaged in environmental conservation, addressing climate change and protecting the Earth for future generations. Egis has continuously expanded their community engagement and CSR support partnering with Hara Jeevan to conduct a significant tree plantation drive in Gurugram, planting more than 2000 saplings from August 2022. Egis has also supported the Chief Medical Officer’s office, Gurugram to set up an IT center in 2021, enabling the office to secure data management, thereby improving the delivery of healthcare services.
