Empowering through education

Home / Sustainability / Empowering through education

At Sagar Cements, we believe that education is the most powerful weapon that can be used to make a positive impact in the society. Most of the schools in the surrounding communities are run by the government. The quality of teaching was average and the dropout rate high. To address this issue, we sent our Vidya Volunteers to these schools to strengthen the quality of education. Our volunteers identify meritorious students and we provide them with monetary support to complete their education.

Due to the efforts of our Vidya Volunteers, the dropout rates have fallen significantly. The academic performance of the students has improved. Our Vidya Volunteers also interacted with parents by visiting their homes and explaining the importance of sending their children to school.

We run a primary educational institution called Sagar Vidya Mandir in Mattampally. The school provides free primary education to children of daily labourers from surrounding villages. In addition, we also support various government-run schools with amenities such as utensils, furniture, etc.

To facilitate a conducive learning environment for students, we provided the schools in our vicinity with:

  • Benches, tables, and other furniture
  • Residential hostels so that students need not travel long distances to attend classes
  • Renovated buildings equipped with grills and boundary walls to create a safe environment for students
  • Improved sanitation facilities
