Mahesh Foundation has been providing free education to underprivileged children who dwell in slums in Belagavi. These children used to travel a long distance by walk to reach the school. Then, we provided school van facilities for them but that was also not enough as the number of children increased from 80 to 275 within the same year. Two school vans used to go multiple rounds to pickup these all children.
Under CSR initiative, Linde Plc supported with a bigger school bus for the commute of these children. These children used walk 4 km to reach the school but that problem was solved with the help of Linde. Because of their support, we have provided a safe transportation facility to them. Also, this led to reduce in dropout rate of these children.
