The Muthoot Group launched Muthoot Haathi Mera Saathi – educational initiative here recently. The programme, in association with Muthoot Group’s NGO partner, Magic Bus, is a part of the group’s CSR activities. Through this initiative, the Muthoot Group aims to provide overall growth to a thousand underprivileged kids from Perumbakkam, Melasovaram, Govindpuram and SP Kovil villages.

Magic Bus started this initiative in Chennai after receiving a good response from similar programs in other parts of the country. Under this programme, local community leaders are trained to mentor kids using sports as a metaphor to learn about the importance of education, personal and community health care, gender equality and livelihood. Several kids and volunteers participated in this event.

Speaking on the initiative, Babu John, AGM Corporate Communication, Muthoot Group said, “One of our social purposes is to make significant contributions towards an equitable and sustainable society and we aim to do this by imparting and enhancing the quality of education among lesser privileged children”.

V Rukmani Priyadarshini, Additional SP, Puzhal prison, advised the participants to be self disciplined. Robert William, Additional Elementary Education Officer and actor Ashwin were also present.
