Religare Enterprises Signs MoU with AWWA; to Support Five More Asha Schools
Religare Enterprises Limited (REL) has announced that it will extend its support to five more Asha Schools for specially-abled children across India. Following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Army Wives Welfare Association (AWWA), REL has extended its support for these Schools in Pune, Bengaluru, Lucknow, Secunderabad and Udhampur.
AWWA supports the running of Asha Schools. The announcement comes after the successful completion of the first phase of the collaboration between REL and AWWA, which saw the modernisation of Asha School in Delhi. REL will continue supporting AWWA in its endeavour to run these Schools.
Replicating the module-based approach implemented at Delhi, REL will offer wholistic support through various interventions, including the development of the curriculum, infrastructure and the faculty’s capabilities. Religare will also support the Schools with the medical and nutritional requirements of the students in addition to provisioning transportation facilities, vocational guidance and placement and internship assistance.
With the objective of making students financially independent, Religare plans for their gradual introduction to corporates by organising internship and training opportunities. After their training, Religare will also offer employment within Religare Group companies spread over 100 locations in India.
Speaking about the initiative, Dr Rashmi Saluja, Executive Chairperson, Religare Enterprises Limited said, “We are proud to be able to support the development of Asha Schools. At Religare, we believe in creating a positive impact in the communities we serve, and we see this initiative as an opportunity to do just that. The Schools mentor and nurture children admirably, allowing them to reach their full potential. By supporting the education and well-being of specially-abled children, we hope to create a better future for them and our society.”
The new Asha Schools will have modern facilities and resources, providing a nurturing environment for children with disabilities to learn and grow.
