Fermenta intends to adopt CSR as a strategic tool for sustainable growth of the company, its’ stakeholders and society at large. To quote its CSR policy, “Fermenta seeks to be a good corporate citizen in everything that it does.”
Remote locations such as the areas near Fermenta’s facilities are in dire requirement of learning resources due to their limited accessibility. Hence, Fermenta contributed towards an e-learning initiative in implementation in schools at Lakhigram, Vagra, Bharuch and commenced a similar project in Kullu. We partnered with Connexus for efficient execution of project.
Schools have used the e-learning resources for 2 hours/ day, for teaching multiple subjects to primary and secondary school students. We have ensured sustainability by contributing towards trouble-shooting and repairs, and provided teacher training for usage of resources.
Our employees at the facilities hail from nearby localities, and hence our ties with the local communities are inherently very strong. Therefore all our activities have extensive involvement of the on-site human resources team, who routinely visit the schools to whom the organization contributes to. Further, the site heads ensure through their routine address that all employees are made aware of the activities carried out.
Fermenta has partnered with NAB by contributing towards keratoplasty surgeries (corneal transplants), educational Braille kits and squint correction surgeries (data suggests that squints are one of the main cause behind non-marriage of girls in the rural areas), grant for diploma in Special Education and establishment of the NAB-DVK Music Academy in memory of Late Shri Datla Vasant Kumar.
The road safety awareness campaign is an initiative to increase public awareness on road/pedestrian safety. It was successfully carried out in association with the Kardhar community, where safety vests were distributed to Kardhar heads and Police Mitra, with the support of the Kullu team. Further, the MargDarshak App, a holistic pedestrian safety solution, was also launched.
Fermenta’s stall at the Kullu Dussehra event conducted various activities for awareness such as quizzes on road safety, pledge boards for visitors to sign and demonstration of MargDarshak App’s usage to locals.
Fermenta has donated wheelchairs for rehabilitation of personnel of the Armed Forces who are medically boarded out i.e., retired from service due to spinal cord injuries while serving the nation. This activity was carried out at the Paraplegic Rehabilitation Centre, Pune.
