Driven by the commitment to bring about constructive change in the lives of individuals who reside in the vicinity of the company’s facilities, Henkel Anand India has implemented several programmes. These include ensuring optimal utilisation of solar power, implementing educational programmes for the differently-abled, honing skills of the rural youth and greening the local environment. Social engagement has formed an integral part of Henkel ANAND India’s activities from its very inception. Over the years, Henkel ANAND India has helped boost the infrastructure quality in governmental schools, enabled differently-abled children to become self-sufficient, created vocational skill development programmes and rolled out a number of volunteer programmes. Corporate volunteering, social partnerships, brand engagement and emergency aid form the four pillars of Henkel’s social engagement agenda. The Make an Impact on Tomorrow initiative was started by Henkel ANAND India to support employees and retirees in their voluntary social engagement efforts. Henkel ANAND India responds quickly and pragmatically during natural disasters by providing aid materials under the aegis of SNSF. Henkel ANAND India’s one-of-its-kind school in Mumbai has instilled hopes of a better life in the minds of several differently-abled children. The students enrolled in the school get trained to lead self-sufficient lives and become financially-independent. Empowering India’s youth with adequate skills to earn a livelihood is another key aspect of Henkel’s CSR efforts. The electrician and plumber training courses, certified by the National Institute of Open Schooling, have enabled a number of youths to become gainfully employed. Several young women, who have undergone the tailoring course, have similarly succeeded in becoming breadwinners for their families.
