Huawei India collaborates with Akshaya Patra
Huawei India, a leading global Information Communications Technology (ICT) solutions provider, has stepped forward to support The Akshaya Patra Foundation as a part of its Corporate Social Responsibility partnership.
In the presence of N Sivasailam, Additional Secretary, Department of Telecommunications, Government of India, an MoU was signed on June 21, 2016, between Huawei and Akshaya Patra to strengthen education and child healthcare. Huawei has committed to aid the mid-day meal scheme for 15,000 children and furthermore, they will contribute towards operating the programme by donating food distribution vehicles and upgrading kitchens.
Jay Chen, CEO of Huawei India said, “With this MoU, we strive to align ourselves with the Indian Government’s vision. We believe that an enterprise can survive, sustain its growth, and contribute to society only if it consistently aligns its core values and operational responsibilities with its social responsibilities. Along with financial support, we also aim to encourage our employees to be a part of this programme.”
Shri Madhu Pandit Dasa, Chairman, Akshaya Patra, signed the MoU on the Foundation’s behalf and said that this collaboration will stimulate the effort and the mission to feed 5 million children by 2020.
