Commtel's CSR Initiative- The Next Level of Commitment

PowerOne of the Core Values which highlights Commtel's commitment towards people in general is 'Respect people and be Socially Responsible'. Building a sustainable future for self and reaching out to those who need a helping hand defines how Commtel functions.

Genesis of Commtel Foundation gave us the requisite impetus, a drive to look beyond self and actualize the values on which Commtel was build. We have been realizing the concept of being socially responsible by concerted steps which are modest yet meaningful, evoking smiles and happiness all around. Few activities in the last few months underline our commitment both in spirit and action.

Continuing our dedicated visit at Umang a few Commtelians celebrated birthday of 3 special children on 25th July. Apart from organizing various fun games for the children at Umang, we shared pleasantries with them and distributed 'electronic re-chargeable torches' among all. This was done to facilitate their ease of movement during night and ensure safety from stray animals and reptiles. We also procured specially made 'diyas', to be distributed internally during Diwali celebration, from these children at Umang, giving them an opportunity to earn while they learn.

CSR Education being one of the prime causes of our support system, Commtel Foundation sponsored education of two needy children studying in 10th and 8th class respectively. This year also saw the second consecutive visit of a few spirited Commtelians to 'Bal Anand', celebrating the joys of Christmas with all. The ever-joyous children joined us in cutting the Christmas cake, amidst the singing of the 'Jingle Bell' song, after which we distributed sweets and gifts in the form of lunch boxes and water bottles among them.

We continued with our endeavor of providing monthly provisions for the children of Bal Anand and the elderly people at Mercy John Memorial. Among all this, the driving force for us is the smiles we earn and the happiness we get. We would keep propagating our Core Value of 'being responsible' by inherently taking steps that add meaning to some lives and also enriches and enlivens us from within.
