Our Unsung Heroes
Some of our colleagues go about their jobs each day not looking for accolades, not wanting a pat on the back. They do their jobs because they want to make a difference. These colleagues are our volunteers who give their precious time to help others and make a difference. They are passionate about the social cause and we in Tech Mahindra Foundation are proud of their contributions. They are many who daily contribute in different ways and we thank them all from the bottom of our hearts but we are able to name only a few.
Today, we are happy to recognise our Star Volunteers - Ajay Kommagalla, Tech Lead, IES dept. Hyderabad, Mayank Dixit, Sajil Chembil and Manish Chandra from the Internal Communications BSG team NOIDA.
Ajay Kommagalla, the CSR SPOC for Hyderabad location council has been actively volunteering for the Foundation since 2007. He was instrumental in initiating relief and rehabilitation for victims of the Hudhud cyclone 2014 and Chennai floods 2015. He has also carried out various drives - note book distribution drive, blanket distribution, supporting people lining on the road side, fund raising for associates' who are critically ill, and Blood donation drives.
I have always believed "where there is a will there is a way," says Loveleen Kacker, CEO. And the internal communication BSG (IC BSG) Team NOIDA which finds time to volunteer in spite of the work pressure are a perfect example of this.
"We wanted to support the Foundation's work but somehow our busy schedules left us with little time. But we were keen. Hence we came up with an idea of giving our creative support to the foundation by creating mailers and collateral for them," says Mayank.
The IC BSG team has volunteered for TMF by giving their time and creativity for a cause. This has helped TMF gain more visibility among the associates and increased volunteer count. Having said that we in the Foundation take pride in announcing that in ESOPS we are second in the entire Mahindra Group.
A big thank you to all the unsung heroes, we recognise your passion and commitment to help others and do something worthwhile. We really appreciate the valuable time and support our volunteers give and urge them to call on their colleagues to become part of volunteer drives.
