Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. is a name synonymous with excellence and commitment. The vision of sustainable and inclusive growth drives both business decisions as well as Corporate Social Responsibility Initiatives at ONGC. Thus when celebrating their Diamond Jubilee this year, they decided to spread the joy by funding an education and nutrition program for street and slum children.
On 14th August 2016, Chairman and Managing Director ONGC, Mr. Dinesh Kumar Sarraf, extended financial support to “Street Smart at ‘Haven’ – a program for education and nutrition for underprivileged children” for the period of one year. The 80 children enrolled in this program come from amongst the rag picking community in the Bindal and Govingarh slums. The children are introduced to basic literacy, hygiene, sanitation and social skills. They are also taught subjects like English, Maths, Hindi, Science and Social Studies. Additionally computer literacy and computer-aided education is also provided. All children attending the program are given a nutritious hot meal, milk and bananas.
Aasraa Trust extends its gratitude to the entire ONGC team: Mr. Sarraf, Mr. D. D. Mishra, Mrs. Prita Pant, Mr. Sharad Chandra Jhaldiyal, Mr. Amardeep Singh , Mr. Gurinder Jeet Singh for their support and guidance.
