KONE India’s CSR Initiative: Empowering Education Through Infrastructure Support

KONE India's CSR I

New Delhi: KONE Elevators India, a fully owned subsidiary of KONE Corporation, partnered with KHUSHII to execute the “Shikshaantra Plus – School Transformation Project” in SDMC K-II, Sangam Vihar, South Delhi. The project aims to uplift the school’s infrastructure, creating a more conducive and inspiring learning environment for the young minds who call this institution their second home.

The new infrastructure was unveiled through a ribbon-cutting ceremony led by Managing Director of KONE Elevators India, Amit Gossain, alongside the senior management team of the school and senior officials from KHUSHII.

Speaking at the occasion Amit Gossain, Managing Director, KONE Elevators India said, “KONE’s commitment to CSR goes beyond business, demonstrating a genuine dedication to social responsibility and community development. The Shikshaantra Plus project is a testament to KONE India’s vision of making a positive and lasting impact on the lives of individuals and communities. Through this project, KONE has contributed to shaping a brighter future for the students of SDMC K-II, Sangam Vihar, South Delhi, and inspiring them to dream big and achieve their educational aspirations.”

There are remarkable changes KONE India’s CSR has brought to SDMC K-II:

●Ground Leveling: The project involved flattening the previously overgrown rear-side playground, which was covered with bushes and thorns. This transformation not only improved the visual appeal but also established a secure and easily accessible area for students, teachers, and school events.

● BaLA (Building as Learning Aid) Painting: The corridors and walls of SDMC K-II received a vibrant makeover through BaLA Painting. The infusion of colors has not only added visual appeal but also fostered an environment where creativity and imagination can flourish.

●Green Boards for Classrooms: A fundamental educational enhancement, green boards were installed in classrooms. These boards provide teachers with a dedicated space to convey information, facilitating interactive learning experiences.

● Student Dual Desks: Recognizing the importance of ergonomic furniture for students, KONE India generously contributed 150 dual desks for nursery to 5th-grade classrooms for improved seating comfort and a conducive learning environment.

●Desktop Computers and Furniture: KONE India generously donated 20 computers along with tables and stools, complete with electric fittings. This technological upgrade empowers students with access to modern learning tools, contributing to their digital literacy and skills development.

●Notice Boards: Effective communication is vital in any educational institution. KONE installed 15 notice boards across various classrooms, ensuring the dissemination of important information and notices.

●Class Gate Painting: In an impressive feat, KONE painted all 54 class gates, each measuring 7×4 feet. This aesthetic enhancement promotes a sense of pride and ownership among students and staff.

● Tile Work: Before the BaLA painting on the corridor walls, meticulous tile work was undertaken to ensure a durable and long-lasting finish, contributing to the overall durability and maintenance of the school’s infrastructure.

● Classroom Whitewashing and Waterproofing: Ensuring the structural integrity of classrooms is paramount. KONE took the initiative to whitewash and waterproof the classrooms, protecting them from environmental factors to a conducive learning environment.

KONE Elevator India has not only enhanced the physical infrastructure of SDMC K-II but also inspired and uplifted the spirits of the students, teachers, and the entire school community.

At KONE Elevators India, the constant focus is on empowering the future generation through citizenship initiatives in areas like education and skill empowerment.
