SCHOOL INFRASTRUCTURE DEVELOPMENT
Reconstruction of a Dilapidated School Infrastructure
CNH Industrial is committed to improve the lives of the communities in which it operates. In pursuance of this commitment, CNH Industrial renovated the building of Zila Parishad Primary School located at Shinde village near Pune, under its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative. After reconstruction, the school was handed over to the school authorities on 30th July 2018.
This was a Brown Field Project. Villagers & Gram Panchayat members from Shinde village had approached the management of CNH Industrial Pune Plant to seek help with the reconstruction of the dilapidated school, which was in danger of collapsing. Children were reluctant to attend their classes in such dangerous conditions. Heeding the call for help, the company took the project to rebuild the school in hand under its CSR initiative. The existing school building was razed down and the foundation stone for the new primary school building was laid in April this year. The whole project took 3 months, which included reconstruction of classrooms, principal's room, separate toilets for boys and girls, renovation of new assembly area and playground; finally, the whole building was painted to give the school a new lease of life.
