Jammu Tawi, December 1
Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited (FGII), a joint venture between Future Group – the game changers in Retail Trade in India and Generali – a 184 years old global insurance group featuring among the world’s 50 largest companies*, has extended its support to ‘Muktashala’- a residential facility to restore the educational rights of 80 tribal children of migrant workers at Mahad in Raigad district of Maharashtra. The facility was inaugurated today in presence of the top management and employee volunteers from the company. This initiative, in association with Pride India, emphasizes the company’s commitment towards uplifting the society through constructing and supporting sustainable solutions for the key issues related to Education, Health and Environment.
In Muktashala, the resident children are provided with nutritious food, qualified teachers, uniforms and educational materials, computers and medicinal support. Also to promote high-esteem among the children, they have been provided with sports materials and other resources supporting their extra-curricular and recreational activities. K. G. Krishnamoorthy Rao, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited commented on the launch, “With our well-planned intervention, we are dedicated towards building the right environment for the overall development of these children, thus ensuring that no child is deprived of his/her fundamental right to access quality education. We believe that education is the gateway to successful and stable life which will eventually bring prosperity to the country as well.”
On the day of the inauguration, the children presented a folk music and dance performance with great zeal and zest. Also a drawing competition on the topic of ‘Importance of Sanitation’ was organized in order to educate the children on the benefits of living in hygienic conditions.
Easwara Narayanan, Chief Operating Officer, Future Generali India Insurance Company Limited added, “In such societies/groups, it’s the child who learns and educates elders on sanitation. Our initiative to organize this competition was to convey a message on the importance and benefits of sanitation. This will help the children know the ways and means of clean sanitation for a better living from an early age and eventually live in a cleaner society.”
FGII believes that it is essential to empower the children to break the vicious circle of poverty and contribute constructively in nation building. With Muktashala, the company aims towards sustaining formal education in a seemingly impossible case of tribal migrants, serving as a great benefit for the children who would otherwise have dropped out of their schools due to migration. Through their active intervention, FGII expects a minimum 55% increase in access to quality education along with an estimated 80% increase in the learning levels of the children at the facility.
