Entrata

corporate social responsibility

Corporate social responsibility at Entrata India primarily focuses on the provision of quality education services for children belonging to an economically and socially backward strata of society, with an emphasis on visually challenged individuals. We have been working in this area since 2014 and are associated with several organizations and nonprofits working for the visually impaired community in Maharashtra.

Entrata India also contributes towards the environment, through tree plantation drives, in collaboration with the Maharashtra forest department.
Blood donation and organ-donation awareness camps are conducted at Entrata India which gives our employees an opportunity to be an integral part of our CSR projects.

Challenges identified in the education system for the visually impaired

Education in children with disabilities is not limited to just knowledge imparted through school and college courses. They lack exposure to situations which improve their communication, socialization and mobility skills. There is very little emphasis laid on computer education for the blind, especially in the rural areas.

Due to lack of knowledge of the growing technology, there is a noticeable trend and stigma, with limited opportunities in careers and vocations, that are pursued by individuals with vision impairment. It is important to identify the strength of each child and empower children towards that career path, from a young age.

Our role

CSR

Entrata India functions as a link between different organizations working for the visually impaired and the beneficiaries from rural villages of Maharashtra, giving them access to educational and vocational opportunities that help strengthen such communities. We help the child identify his/her career path and address the vital skills sets required to adapt to the changing technology needs. We also provide the required financial support and guidance to these students, until they become independent individuals and are able to earn their own livelihood.

Our Vision

CSR

We envision a world where differently abled individuals in our society are able to achieve their full potential and live in society with dignity & equal opportunities.

Our Mission

CSR

We seek to partner with differently abled persons belonging to economically weaker sections of society by:

  • Promoting the use of technological advances for their benefit
  • Supporting other activities for their welfare & development including employment
