LANXESS supports Sewa Rural

LANXESS made a donation to Sewa Rural, a voluntary development organization involved in health and development activities in rural tribal areas. The contribution was made in favour of Vivekananda Gramin Tekniki Kendra for their futuristic project on equipping and strengthening amenities in the campus and supporting services for students.

The project entailed installation of solar street lights and solar cooker system, building the proposed water harvesting and drainage systems and making the water lagoon facility more effective and accessories for overhead tank and pipelines.

About Vivekananda Gramin Tekniki Kendra:
Youth & women have remained in the focus of all the nonhealth activities of SEWA Rural. Youngsters in rural India are trapped in a vicious cycle of poverty, ignorance and lack of opportunity. To bring about some change in the situation and to provide opportunities to the deprived youth, a vocational training centre was started in 1987. Now every year some 200 youth are trained in Vivekananda Gramin Tekniki Kendra. The trades include Turner, Fitter - welder, Gardening, Electrician, Environment Plant Operator in which 10 months of theoretical and incampus practical training is followed by first hand exposure & experience of 2 months in nearby Ankleshwar & Bharuch industries. During second year all students are placed in industries for on job training under the liaison of VGTK staff. Besides technical competence various other components like group prayers, sports, library etc. activities inculcate values of discipline, punctuality and hard work for value based life.
