Lumax Charitable Foundation, the CSR wing of Lumax, has been facilitating social initiatives over the years focusing on Health, Education, Girl child empowerment and life enrichment programmes. The Vision of the Foundation focusses on its endeavour to transform lives of children, youth and the elderly to have a better future and eternal hope.
The mission translates to - Provide education, life skills and health in communities around our plant locations for a better and healthy life.
Some of the major highlights over the years are:
At a fundamental level, Lumax believes it is important to provide education to ensure that people have the baseline skills – literacy, numeracy - to survive in the world. Education also gives them the ability to communicate, complete tasks and work along with others. It is a powerful tool that empower individuals who in turn build better communities.
Lumax Charitable Foundation has been working with private schools in Gurugram catering to the needs of the low-income groups and communities. The foundation has envisioned to upgrade and improve the quality of Education and Infrastructure at schools so as to provide holistic education. Infrastructure support through constructing classrooms, providing DG sets for uninterrupted power supply, water sanitation facilities, providing Smart classes & e-learning opportunities, giving science education a thrust through setting-up Science labs and Computer labs.
In order to further strengthen the education programmes, the foundation has undertaken capacity building for the teachers on teaching methodologies, providing learning aids, school starter kits, material for co-scholastic activities, exposure /excursion trips, facilitating the educational requirements of the children in these schools is an integral part of the foundations scope.
In the area of health, the foundation has several programmes namely, Cataract surgeries, Cancer awareness, screening and treatment, Juvenile diabetes and health check-up at schools.
In continuation with its endeavour to provide good health to the underprivileged, vision and eyesight was the direct extension of the business, therefore it was decided to help improve the vision of the underprivileged in rural areas who are affected by Cataract.
