9 May 2016 – GURGAON, India – Kurtosys IT team members located in Gurgaon, India assisted the Sanshil Foundation last week by installing desktop computers at the Sanshil school in order to help underprivileged children learn to read and write.
Kurtosys is immensely proud of team members Rohit, Vijay, Himanshu, and Arvind, who helped to install the computers and ensure that the PCs were in running condition. The Sanshil Foundation will be utilizing these computers to teach local children basic reading and writing skills so that they may be successfully transferred to the public school system in the future.
We are thrilled to start regular computer classes for all the kids as part of our curriculum. Some of them had not even imagined that they will be able to work on one everyday! To Rohit and Team Kurtosys – Thank you for the prompt response!!
–Shilpa Sonal, Head of the Sanshil Foundation
Community outreach is important to Kurtosys – we are a global company whose locations are as diverse as New York, South Africa, the UK, or India. Operating in developing cities is about more than good business; it’s about helping shape communities and offer real opportunities that inspire people to make a positive difference to the world around them.
The Sanshil Foundation is an NGO based in Gurgaon, India (30km outside of Delhi) set up with the goal of mentoring local, impoverished children who lack opportunities for education. Founder Shilpa Sonal continues to monitor and mentor children following their transition from Sanshil to the public school system, and ensures their success by preparing them for parochial school or advanced education shortly thereafter. The Foundation also has a range of community initiatives in the local area including empowering villages with renewable energy, workshops for women creating items from recycled materials, and courses for youths through vocational training.
Through its commitment to projects like this, Kurtosys is helping to invest in the future of Gurgaon by building a business that provides global customers with an unrivalled standard of service, and simultaneously, helps the local economy to thrive.
