BANGALORE: Ujjivan Financial Services, urban micro finance institutions, distributed water purifiers, educational kits, weighing scale, pressure cookers, chairs and toys to children at a model anganwadi in Chandra Layout as part of its Social Development Programme in Karnataka.
Chowdappa, Child Development Project Officer was present at the event. The objective of the programme was to offer basic facilities to aganwaadi schools which would match the standard of private schools.
Speaking on the occasion, Chowdappa, said, “Our children are the country’s future. I am happy that in addition to financially helping the underprivileged women and bringing them to the mainstream, Ujjivan is also encouraging the education of children by providing basic school facilities. I am honoured to be a part of such a novel initiative.”
Pradeep B, distribution manager of Ujjivan, said, “Ujjivan has an all-round approach for poverty alleviation, which requires more than just financial services. Our customers know that quality education is the key to get out of poverty and they are the ones who suggest urgently needed child welfare projects in the community and these are entirely funded by Ujjivan. These Social Development Programmes are a critical part of our mission to help build a better life.” Over 380 children in city and 12,000 children across the state benefitted from this programme.
