Bry-Air Pathshala for the Underprivileged
Bry-Air, inaugurated the Bry-Air Pathshala, a learning center for underprivileged children. This center is run in partnership with Literacy India, a leading NGO in the field of education. Located in Dharam Colony, Gurgaon, the center is fully funded by Bry-Air and provides non-formal education to children of the area. The children mainly belong to the migrant community and are generally rag pickers or are working for daily wages in dhabas, etc., or are just loitering around. Bry-Air Pathshala will provide a stimulating, healthy and secure learning environment, free of cost, which will facilitate holistic child development.
By creating a primary school environment and introducing non school-going children to learning, the center hopes to act as a stepping-stone to a better life. The Center has a computer lab, a library; learning aids such as books, stationary, etc., are provided to the children as well. Remedial classes for school-going children who are weak in studies and vocational classes for women such as tailoring & stitching are also held at the Pathshala.
Speaking during the inauguration, Mr. Deepak Pahwa, Chairman Pahwa Enterprises and Managing Director Bry-Air Asia said “this is a small contribution towards providing opportunities to children who do not have access to any educational facility. Children are our tomorrow and this is a small step for creating a brighter future for them.”
Bry-Air's underlying philosophy with regards to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is to pursue corporate value enhancement through innovation and sustainable business practices.
