Corporate Social Responsibility Projects

The Themis group is committed to enabling an Inclusive Society. We believe in creating equal opportunities for the underprivileged and differently abled members of the society. Hence, our CSR team builds sustainable projects based on this philosophy. Looking at the current scenario in India, we are focused on initiatives related to women and children welfare in rural India. We, therefore, have taken up education, healthcare and vocational training as our main projects.

Corporate Social Responsibility Projects

We partnered with Bombay Mother & Children Welfare Society (BMCW) which is a Public Charitable Trust working for the underprivileged in both rural and urban Maharashtra since 1919. They have adopted 92 villages in and around Rajgurunagar, Maharashtra covering a population of 3 lakhs.

With their knowledge and expertise we were able to initiate several sustainable projects such as:

Sanitary Pad Manufacturing Project

The purpose of this project was to create employment opportunities for women as well as promote economical and hygienic healthcare products for women who do not have the means or access to get them. After a few challenges and hurdles, we were finally able to use the machine successfully. The feedback from the women is encouraging and we plan to keep adding more machines to spread more awareness as well as employment opportunities for women in the area.

Computer Van Project

Education, we believe, is the backbone of a strong society. These days being part of the digital community is also an important part of education. A large number of young kids are too far from the digital learning centres hence we setup a van which has a complete computer lab setup which travels to different schools around the area to impart computer training to primary school children.

Computer Training on Wheels is a mobile van to be used to teach the rural people computers. In this mobile van, we have 6 computers and 6 smart phones.

A tribal boy has been trained as a Computer instructor cum Driver. Students unite with him easily as he is from the local tribal community. He has been doing his rounds in the villages and have trained 1,172 village students. This Computer Van Project also visits 40 schools. The running of the van is 7846.

Solar Panel Project

We introduced solar energy via solar panels to houses and schools deprived of electricity and have put them on Alternative Green Energy.

This participatory programme helps solve the nagging problems of unpaid electricity bills and breaks in the continuity of education. Solar power panels are installed in 4 rural/tribal schools and 60 households.

Water Scheme Project

Life without water is very difficult. In the early days, the tribal women had to walk great distances to get a pot of water for drinking and sanitation for their families, which wasn’t safe to drink and often made people sick.

The tribal community at Rajgurunagar now has access to clean, safe drinking water in 3 remote villages i.e. Kanhewadi / Kaman / Vetale Thakerwadis.

BMCWS encouraged the villagers to start digging so that a water tank and pipes could be installed. We provided the water tanks, pumps and pipes but the villagers themselves completed the installation task. Total number of beneficiaries involved are 770 towards the Water Scheme Project.

The Medical Van Project

A Cruiser Medical Van was funded by Themis for use at Rajgurunagar and the program is run by the Sathe Family. This van was used in 12 medical camps. The number of beneficiaries/patients are 1,260. This Medical Van visited 344 villages with Doctors & Nurses for : ANC & PNC, OPD and medicines for common illnesses. Yearly medical check-ups are carried out for all school going children. Regular Medical Camps and Advocacy is given to eligible couples.

Gender inequality & sensitization
Sex education is given to students along with parents. Menstrual hygiene is explained with a supply of cost effective Sanitary napkins.

It is also used for solar energy/nutritional support program/school visits, bicycle distribution, e-learning/organizing tailoring batches/karate classes follow up and for distribution of mobile science experiments kits.
