Two private companies have joined hands to provide a comfortable and clean environment for the schoolchildren.
Zilla Parishad High School in Khajaguda is all set to get a facelift soon. Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation, along with Infotech Enterprises, is going to develop and upgrade the infrastructure in this school.
The school, located near Bombardier’s Engineering Centre India (BTECI), educates around 600 children aged between three and 15 from underprivileged backgrounds.
Bombardier also plans to upgrade the basic infrastructure, such as sanitation and furniture, at the school. This initiative aims to provide a comfortable and clean environment to help young students learn and thrive.
“Our goal at Bombardier is to create meaningful economic, social and environmental benefits for the communities in which we operate,” said Josef Doppelbauer, chief technical officer, Bombardier Transportation. He adds, “By providing a better learning environment for these pupils, we are helping them to get a foot on the ladder to better education. We are pleased to invest in these young people to improve their career prospects and in doing so, support the communities in which we work.”
A special event was organised, which was attended by Doppelbauer; Jan Radtke, senior director, group engineering, Bombardier Transportation; Venkata Ramayanam, director, engineering centre (India), Bombardier Transportation; and Ashok Reddy, president, global HR and corporate affairs, Infotech Enterprise, along with employees from both companies. Teachers, students and staffers of the school also took part in the event.
Speaking at the function, Reddy said: “Started in 2002, an important part of Infotech Enterprises Charitable Trust’s vision has been to improve the quality of education imparted to underprivileged children in schools which lack basic amenities. We have been seeking support from our esteemed customers, the local community and the government. Today, the Infotech Enterprises trust supports 10 schools around Hyderabad, educating a total of 5,400 underprivileged children.”
