Mysuru, KA, IN, October 31, 2016:
EqualizeRCM Services India has started reaching out to underprivileged communities as part of its chores. We believe in the trusteeship concept. This entails transcending business interests and grappling with the “quality of life” challenges that under served communities face, and working towards making a meaningful difference to them through various modes.
Our aim is “to actively contribute to the social and economic development of the communities in which we operate. In so doing build a better, sustainable way of life for the weaker sections of society and raise the country’s human development index.”
Project Identification and Implementation Process
ERCM India is engaged with Pratham, Mysore, a grass root charitable organization, promoting the cause of educating underprivileged children in slums and narrow lanes of the city. Established in 2002, the NGO is committed to achieve universalisation of primary education and improving the educational standards in primary schools. Driven by the mission statement “Every Child in School and Learning Well” as well as by building effective working partnerships with the community, statutory bodies and the private sector, Pratham Mysore has successfully delivered programmes of education at pre and primary school levels by touching the lives of over 17,000 underprivileged children, mostly from urban slums and rural areas. All projects are identified in a participatory manner, in consultation with Pratham Mysore, literally sitting with them and gauging their basic needs.
Arising from this the focus areas that have emerged are Education and Espousing Social Causes. All of our community projects are carried out under the aegis of ERCM management. In Education, our endeavour is to spark the desire for learning and knowledge at every stage through, formal schools, balwadis for elementary education and quality primary education programmes. ERCM invites volunteers across its employees to support the initiative and programs adopted. The volunteering employees then goes ahead to educate them.
As of now, we have supported the following programs of Pratham Mysore
|Knowledge Bridge||E4E – Education for Empowerment|
|Train the Trainer||Spoken English|
|Basic Computer Coaching for Pratham’s Volunteers||Assisted with Facilities for NMMS Coaching, etc.|
