SNEHA Sponsors 15 Bicycles to the Girls in Kuttanad

In Kuttanad the roads are very narrow and uneven, and the possible means of transportation is two wheelers in most of the places.

Promoting Learning Among Children

One of our key initiatives is to promote long-term education among the children of our support staff. To facilitate this, we provide financial support and mentorship to deserving students. Our support for education is not limited to this. We’ve helped Bharatiya Vidya Gramam, a school on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram, improve its infrastructure by providing financial assistance.

Supporting Sustainability Initiatives

Going beyond the cause of education, SunTec’s employees also believe in sustainability programs that make our planet smile. An example of that is Earth Hour. We encourage individuals to use electricity/ technology strategically, giving rise to an intentional usage plan. We undertake this practice annually, in the month of March.
SNEHA was drawn to launch the Go-Green Project in 2012, which supports the cause of a healthier, thriving environment. We’ve initiated a series of efforts, like introducing green, eco-friendly products, reduced printing where possible, energy conservation practices, as well as organizational energy audits.

Relief Efforts for Victims of Natural Disasters

In 2015, several parts of the city of Chennai were washed out due to unprecedented floods. SunTec, with its Chennai office employees leading the efforts, launched a range of relief and rehabilitation initiatives. Providing easy access to core amenities, we not only distributed healthy, hygienic food and water to multiple neighborhoods, but also set-up medical camps in schools, and distributed clothing/ blankets.

Creating Sustainable Access to Clean Water

In collaboration with students of IIM – Kochi, SunTec spearheaded a social development project at a tribal colony in Uthimoodu, Pathanamthitta district of Kerala. Though the tribal community of 26 families had sustained themselves well, a persistent issue they had was scarcity of water. Our project addressed this, by digging a borewell, providing electric pumps, as well as installing overhead tanks at the houses.
