Bosch India supports education programs for underprivileged children

In cooperation with the Primavera children’s charity, the SRGVVK Trust School in Bengaluru, India aims to give children from a poor background access to education and a safe environment. More than 130 children of various ages have already enrolled and are receiving an education. Donations pay for teachers’ salaries, school uniforms, and educational material. For example, the SRGVVK Trust participates in the Bosch “Lab in a Box” project, which provides students with boxes of instructive material for math and science. The school also provides day care and one warm meal a day for small children.

Three pillars of social engagement

In India, Bosch helps people in need on three levels. Along with Primavera, the organization funded by Bosch associates, this includes the Bosch India Foundation, which supports rural development. In addition to this, the various divisions champion social causes directly in the adjacent communities. Here, Bosch focuses on issues of hygiene and health at state schools as well as neighborhood projects near Bosch locations. Initiatives for school drop-outs, such as the BRIDGE program (Bosch’s Response to India’s Development and Growth through Employability Enhancement), are another focus of the company’s community work. “We deeply care about vocational training for young people – especially for those that don’t finish school,” says Dr. O.P. Goel, General Manager Corporate Social Responsibility at Bosch India. “We try to make these young people fit for the labor market.” More than 10,000 young people have found employment with the help of BRIDGE since 2013.

Help for children in need

The Primavera charity, founded by Bosch associates in 1990, helps disadvantaged children break out of the cycle of poverty. About 1,000 children in need benefit drom Primavera's engagement in India through 11 different projects. Volunteers in 15 countries across the world guide more than 30,000 children on their path to an independent life.
