The year began with a fundamental CSR initiative hosted by Spark Minda, Ashok Minda Group through their special program “Saksham”. The 12 days, 12 Ngo empowerment camp helped the disabled, women and children, providing them with a mobility aid, skilling, and employment.
Spark Minda Group, India’s leading auto manufacturer has actively participated in welfare activities since 2014. Over the years, the company has been a major contributor in setting up artificial limb fitment camp, setting wire harness belt in Yerwada Jail, and educating women and children.
The artificial limb fitment camp was recently organized at Chimbali, Pune from 27th January-07th February 2019, to remove mobility anomalies, develop skills, and create employment. Working vehemently for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), the Group aims at providing OJT training, ergonomics and better workplace, life skills training and more work engagement of PWDs.
Also being one of the most substantial disability-friendly companies, the camp provided end-to-end support in Limb fitment, Caliper fitment, Walkers, Elbow Crutches, Tricycle, wheelchair and other supporting aids.
Speaking at the camp ceremony of Artificial Limb Fitment, Ashok Minda, Group CEO, said, “This is indeed a moment of great pride for Spark Minda Group, here felicitating Artificial Limb Fitment in Pune. Organizing “Saksham” – Artificial Limb Fitment Camp started with merely 500 fitments in 2015 and within the span of three years we have enabled more than 5000 PWD with successful limb fitments in different parts of the world… We firmly believe such associations for promoting welfare in society will go leaps and bounds.”
