Siemens has been associated with St. Catherine’s Home, a primary school and orphanage for street children, at Bandra, Mumbai for over five years. Our objective is to provide a normal childhood to the 240 vulnerable children resident at St. Catherine’s. So far Siemens has adopted three batches of nearly 115 children and contributes towards their boarding and educational expenses on a yearly basis. In addition, with active employee participation, we have also assisted in restoring / upgrading the infrastructure such as building of two new classrooms, repairing the rooftop, setting up rain shelters, constructing a play ground with playing equipment, renovating toilets and maintaining the exterior painting of the building. On an on-going basis, we organize many recreational programs for the children every year: including summer camps to Lonavala, picnics to Essel World and Water Kingdom. In order to encourage soft skills, we also distribute board games, paintbrushes, paint books and crayons to these children and organize (in-house) exhibitions and sale of their drawings.
