CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
Working together for a social cause
In India, over 21 million people are suffering from one or the other kind of disability. This is equivalent to 2.1% of the population. With a vision to empower the people with disabilities and enhance the socio-economic status of the disability sector, Omkar Trust for the Disabled, laid its foundation with seven diverse initiatives in the year 2010. Omkar Trust provides education support to children, skill development training for youth with disabilities, blind cricket, women empowerment, vocational training programmes, environment conservation projects, and midday meal programme for school children.
By associating with Omkar Trust on the CSR front, our corporate partners support our projects and ensure their continuous operation, fulfilling their social responsibility. These partnerships largely aid in the implementation of Omkar Trust initiatives, their sustainability, upscaling, and geographical expansion. Omkar Trust, with the help of its CSR allies, is positive of accomplishing its goals and help in building a country where persons with disabilities enjoy equal rights.
OMKAR TRUST’S PROJECT ALIGNMENT WITH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
As part of corporate volunteering under CSR, the volunteers add great value to our programs via activities involving tutoring, communication, languages, art workshops and personality development sessions. The social responsibility as an individual is highlighted through their participation.
Corporate involvement at Omkar Trust also finds its importance in hiring candidates from the Skilling Centers of Omkar Trust. Trained candidates from LRCs have been placed in companies from diverse verticals. Volunteers from corporate and the special placement cell by Omkar Trust aid in finding suitable job opportunities through job fairs and workshops regularly conducted at various centers.
