As a part of Toyota Kirloskar Motors’ altruistic services, the company recently inaugurated a newly reconstructed school building for the school children of Government Lower Primary School at Medanahalli in Bidadi on 31st October, 2012.
Situated 2 km away from the TKM plant, the Medenahalli Govt. School building was in ramshackles when TKM undertook the reconstruction.
Besides, reconstructing the school, TKM also distributed books, bags, shoes and socks to the underprivileged children of the school. The inauguration ceremony was graced by Mr. K. Srikanth, Senior Vice President, TKM, Shri. Balakrishna, Member of Legislative Assembly, Magadi, Zilla Parishad President Shri K Mudaraj Yadav and Gram Panchayat Prseident Shri Shivakumar amongst other distinguished guests, school staff and children.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. K. Srikanth said, “We at Toyota believe that education does not only build a strong foundation for growing children but also fosters a sound basis of a society. Every child has the right to be educated and no child should be deprived of such a right. We at Toyota felt that to accomplish this, a child must be able to learn in a healthy environment. The Medenahalli school building was in a very bad condition when we decided to take up the task of reconstructing the school building.”
“We are glad we could contribute in our own way to help the school authorities as Toyota is committed to provide the basic education to rural poor school children to improve the literacy level of the state and thereby create better society which benefits the nation and the economy. We have to make an effort to increase the literacy level currently 75.6% to 90% in next 3 to 5 yrs in collaboration with the state government. We believe in growing together with the local community by fostering a long lasting relationship with them,” added Mr. Srikanth.
