Dabur revamps government middle school in Jammu

Moving forward on its commitment to improving the quality of life of local communities, particularly children, Dabur has announced the expansion of its corporate social responsibility (CSR) drive in Jammu with the adoption of two new government schools in the city. The first of these schools — Government Middle School, Bari Shah Da Talab, Distt Samba — was revamped in partnership with Ennoble Social Innovation Foundation. The revamped school was handed over to the school authorities at a ceremony held in Jammu. The revamp would benefit the over 35 students studying in this school.

The development work was carried out by Dabur’s CSR arm Jivanti Welfare & Charitable Trust and an independent not-for-profit organisation Ennoble Social Innovation Foundation. Dabur’s head-manufacturing Hrishikesh Ramani, along with students inaugurated the revamped school and handed it over to the school authorities in the presence of ZEPO, Vijaypur, Anil Kumar of the education department, Ennoble founder and CEO, Chirag Bhandari, school management committee members and village panchayat.
The transformation includes establishing separate sanitation facilities for boys and girls, creating safe drinking water facilities and upgrading the school infrastructure with BaLA (Building as Learning Aid) painting. The school was also equipped with experiential education materials including a Mini Science Lab and Teaching Learning Material for an engaging learning experience. The school premises are now friendly for specially-abled students with the creation of ramps for Children with Special Needs (CwSN) toilet.
The revamped school now has a new playground and an uninterrupted electricity supply. A recycled Paver block has been used and a compost bin has been set up to sensitise students on sustainability and to inculcate a sense of responsibility towards the environment.
The school, with its innovative elements and vibrant building, is now comparable with any private school. The entire community, including the school authorities, are delighted with the transformation and there is an increased interest amongst the community to enrol their kids in this school. “Dabur is committed to the sustainable well-being of people in our operational areas, and we believe that ensuring proper education for children is a priority endeavour. At Dabur, we have always supported the cause of promoting quality education and empowering individuals. This school support programme is an intrinsic part of our efforts to improve the overall learning environment in schools in Jammu, which we feel will go a long way in reducing school dropouts,” Hrishikesh Ramani of Dabur said.
Chirag Bhandari of Ennoble, added, “Ennoble envisions making government schools a number one choice of the community by revamping school infrastructure and creating conducive learning ecosystems. We are glad to have found a partner in Dabur who are focused on working at grassroots levels to improve the learning spaces under their CSR initiative.”
