This noble cause was initiated on the first day of year 2021, i.e, January 1, 2021 by GHIAL CEO, Mr. Pradeep Panicker through a mail requesting participation of all employees for this noble cause. During the month of January 2021 close to 300 employees participated from GHIAL and JVs contributed an incredible 1500 kgs of rice! The collected rice was handed over to Youth For Seva on February 2, 2021. And with each passing month, more and more employees are connecting with the programme, ensuring increased support to maximum number of needy in the society.
The GMR Group in Hyderabad has initiated this campaign to feed the hungry in association with an NGO called Youth For Seva (YFS). The YFS was founded in 2007 and is working in Education, Health sectors and involved in social service activities. YFS has a presence in 13 states in India with about 1 Lakh volunteers and it has reached out to more than 6 million beneficiaries since inception.
