As they aligned their business practices to UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), targeting positive reporting in 2023, in Social Impact also they rendered a push to social projects that can change life of the beneficiaries.
They launched Access To Digital World initiative that enabled students from economically disadvantaged families to enter and better navigate the world of digital learning and tuition to successfully participate in classes, during the difficult times of the Covid-19 pandemic.
To facilitate online learning, specially adapted tablets were given to more than 300 students under the corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme.
Under this same initiative, Kasturba Balika Vidyalaya of Delhi got 360-degree support from WIKA, to overhaul the school infrastructure and equipment availability, thus boosting overall development and empowerment of girl child.
According to Gaurav Bawa, Sr Vice President, WIKA India, “It is our pride that we have been able to make a difference to the children we have reached out to. We realised that any intervention will need to be holistic if we want results. Hence, we got associated with Kasturba Balika Vidyalaya and was able to create a difference in terms of infrastructure, sustainability and individual student capacity. The school caters to girl students from BPL and average families. WIKA has helped this school in rebuilding its classes, library and also in buying the computers and tablets required for these students for online education and technology enablement.”
While education has been one of the important CSR interventions of WIKA, the company also went onto use the funds for installation of Solar Energy and investing in renewables.
While Solar panels have been installed in the school, all the four factories of WIKA in India are fitted with Solar panels making them a positive supplier to the electricity board. Adhering to the strategy of Environmental protection and energy policy, WIKA used solar rooftop solutions to make themselves energy positive.
