AMCHAM CSR Best Practice Visit – 16th October 2015
AmCham CSR Committee witnessed their 3rd Best Practice Visit at Vidya School, Gurgaon facilitated by our member Federal Mogul. This time we had many new participants and was well attended. We took a tour of the school which is being well managed by Vidya Integrated Development for Youth & Adults.
Exploring diverse options in vocational training for talented women, Federal-Mogul started this driving classes to motivate them to lead into an unconventional field, less travelled and challenging. The intention is to promote women drivers, which springs from the recent turmoil in Indian society. We toured Vidya’s driving courses and noticed they do a phenomenal job of integrating driving training, attendant skills, vehicle maintenance, self-defense, and eventually the drivers become road savvy. These women were from economically weaker sections and belonged to nearby slum areas but the confidence and dedication was clearly shown on their faces and it was quite impressive.
