Linde has been sponsoring various initiatives of Mahesh Foundation for the past 8 years and has been a key partner in the foundation’s growth journey.
Mahesh Foundation is also starting with an ambitious project of a new Skill Development Center at Kanabargi, Belagavi, Karnataka. This Skill Center will train underprivileged girls and women on basic computer usage, tailoring, art and craft, and communication and soft skills to help them become self-sustained in their life.
A team of volunteers from Linde visited Mahesh Foundation to flag off the commencement of the school bus service and laying of the foundation stone of the Skill Development Center.
On this occasion Bibhabasu Sengupta, Director – Marketing and Communications - South Asia, of Linde, said, “Our collaboration with Mahesh Foundation has helped us effectively reach out to medically challenged and underprivileged children from North Karnataka. Together, Linde and Mahesh Foundation have been able to provide shelter, nutrition, healthcare, and education to several medically challenged and underprivileged children, ensuring a better quality of life for them. This is part of our objective to enhance lives and make a positive influence in the community around us, which complement our mission of making our world more productive.”
Shri Mahesh Jadhav, Founder - Mahesh Foundation added that “We at Mahesh Foundation are proud to be associated with Linde across the years. The donation of the school bus would aid safe transportation of 100+ underprivileged from the local community who attend school at Utkarsha Learning Centre.
