We at Tech Mahindra Foundation are supporting projects which empower all to RISE.

The journey of ‘Empowering through Education’ began in 2007 and through our interventions, we continue ‘Giving wings to young Dreams’ across 11 cities in India. The Foundation works with the mandate that 50% of its beneficiaries are women and 10% are Persons with disabilities. Over the years, the Foundation has impacted 2,90,425 direct beneficiaries across all the programs except COVID Relief (as on 31 March 2021). In the FY 2019-20, we impacted 38,337 direct beneficiaries and in the FY 2020-21, we impacted 30,820 through all our programs except COVID Relief.

Our COVID Relief Program has impacted 25,13,819 lives lives through 512 COVID Relief Program across 17 states in the country (as on 11 June 2021).

The actual beneficiaries of our social initiatives are from the community itself. We at the Foundation, connect with the community at different levels of program ideation, program design, execution and review with the intent of designing and implementing programs for the community at large. We have witnessed the community flourish through our various programs in employability, education, disability, and corporate volunteering and the aim for years to come is to maximise our impact by incorporating innovation and sustainability in our projects.

The Foundation is implementing the COVID Program intending to contain the spread of the virus and also aiming at protecting the communities that are most at risk of serious social and economic disruption due to public health measures undertaken to suppress COVID-19 transmission. Our COVID Relief Program has impacted 25,13,819 lives through 512 COVID Relief Program across 17 states in the country (as on 11 June 2021).  Since March 2020, the Foundation continues to provide dry ration kits, cooked meals, life-saving medical equipments and safety gear like PPE kits & masks and sanitized community toilets. We are working towards minimizing the impact of the pandemic on public health and limit its potential for further disruption to the lives and the economy by addressing the challenges of weakened healthcare systems and entrenched inequalities in a post-COVID world.

Hours of Volunteering

Coming together for the disadvantaged communities to promote empathy and understanding of social inequalities is a solution to reduce inequalities in society. In FY 2019-20, 32,063 Tech Mahindra Associates clocked 168,176 hours of volunteering across our projects in India and around 31,830 of them clocked 164,278 hours in FY 2018-19. The Foundation encourages Tech Mahindra associates to share their time and skills in a socially constructive manner for community development. They volunteer towards our beneficiaries through programs that range from community-based such as Swachchta to learnings that are curriculum-based, such as Soft-skill trainings to SMART students. While in the process of building the community of change-makers, the most important thing that we do is to sensitize our associates to understand that all this is a ‘Way of Life’ which at Tech Mahindra we call ISR (Individual Social Responsibility).
