Clarion has a Social Conscience and is committed to make a positive impact on the environment and stakeholders including employees, customers, communities and others. We are working with nonprofit organizations in Chennai (AIM for SEVA) and Haridwar (Maatranchal Kanya Vidhya Peeth) that are involved in exemplary work in the areas of Social Welfare and Education.
AIM (All India Movement) for SEVA is the brainchild of Swami Dayananda Saraswati, a world-renowned spiritual leader and an authority on Vedanta and was born out of his vision to bring value-based education and health care to the least privileged sections of society. The organisation is committed to helping poor children in rural areas of India to complete schooling. The organisation does this through an innovative concept called Free Student Home, which allows children to gain access to a nearby school. The facility takes care of the pastoral needs of children, including an after school component that helps shape their personality and character. AIM for SEVA has already established more than 100 such homes in rural India.
Clarion has funded the construction of one such student home at Chilamathur (Andhra Pradesh), located near the border of Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu in Chittoor district. The student home was inaugurated in August, 2014 and has the capacity to house 30 boys on nearly 3000 square feet of built-up area.
Maatranchal Kanya Vidhya Peeth, Haridwar, is an institution that is involved in the noble endeavour of providing free accommodation, education and medical facilities for orphaned girls and girls from poor rural and tribal areas. The institution additionally provides free training and education to girls and women on Stitching, Knitting, Embroidery, Spinning, Handicrafts, Typing, Computers and so on, with an objective to make them self-reliant and self-employed. The institution is also setting up residential schools (Play Group to High School) for girls and has planned to include sports education, music centre, gymnasium, library and such other facilities at the school.
Clarion has partnered with this noble institution to support the annual expenses towards food, education, maintenance and upgradation of facilities. We are also contributing to the construction of a new school for Maatrachal at Kankhal, Haridwar. This school, when completed, aims to provide education and residential facilities for upto 300 girls from neighbouring villages in Haridwar as well as from the backward areas of Uttarakhand.
In addition to social welfare and education-centric initiatives, Clarion is also sensitive to the environment and strongly believes that as custodians of the earth, we need to be actively involved in protecting it. Clarion contributes to the environment in a humble way by producing wind power, thus enabling us to reduce our Carbon footprint.
