General Motors India CSR activity in schools
CSR initiatives are important to corporations. General Motors Technical Center India (GMTC-I) hosted fund raising activity in April 2014 to cater to education needs of Gunjur Government School students in Bangalore.
Having been associated since 2011, GMTC-I raise funds to better infrastructural support and nutritional assistance to these children. Distribution of school kits and stationery took place this month at the start of the academic year. GMTC-I aims to make education accessible to as many underprivileged children in the area.
Volunteers are responsible for learning sessions, teach English and introduce kids to science projects. Students also visit GMTC-I, and participate in school related events. Sports too plays an important role, and back in December, GMTC-I distributed indestructible One World Futbols Gunjur students on their annual sports day.

The school run by ‘Sankalp Welfare Society’ NGO in Gurgaon sees committed support from GM in the future as well.
