42Gears Celebrates 8th Year Anniversary by Expanding its Social Responsibility Program
“We believe that our growth in business is directly proportional to our contribution towards society.”
BENGALURU, India, June 16, 2017 - 42Gears Mobility Systems, a leading Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution provider, has perpetuated the importance of giving back to the community since its inception. And as it completes 8 years of service, 42Gears announces that it has expanded its mission to provide mid-day meal for school children by partnering with Akshaya Patra Foundation.
Working towards the motto of ‘Healthy Kids, Healthy Nation’, 42Gears provides nutritious mid-day meals for school children in Hubballi district, located around 400 kilometers away from Bangalore city. As part of the initiative, a total of 2110 children across 4 different schools is given healthy meals everyday.
The drive to give back to society by feeding school kids was kickstarted at a smaller scale almost 5 years ago in 2012. Overtime, the company expanded its program reach to cover more children. With the help of Akshaya Patra Foundation, 42Gears was also able to contribute towards setting up a kitchen last year, with state-of-the-art cooking facilities.
Ashok Poojari, the CFO of 42Gears spoke about the program - “We believe that our growth in business is directly proportional to our contribution towards society. As our company progresses, our dedication towards becoming a socially responsible business has only become stronger. We hope that our endeavor to fulfill the nutritional needs of school children, in some way will help to create a better future for India.”
