Our partnership with Swiss Re Foundation and the Bangalore North Round Table involved the construction of the Government Model Girls Primary School, Devanahalli in 2017. Embassy provided project management and infrastructural expertise to oversee the design and development activities end to end. The project was completed in 7 months and includes classrooms, staff rooms, a library, science labs, a multipurpose hall, a kitchen and a toilet block. With construction complete, both partners will work together to provide holistic health and hygiene interventions, which will positively impact around 260 students enrolled at this school. The partnership also provided temperature monitors, and digital classrooms to government schools, and donated ICU equipment for 3 hospitals.
"We, at Swiss Re Global Business Solutions Centre Bangalore, are driven by the CSR vision of a long-term and meaningful engagement to positively impact society. While we were consolidating our CSR efforts towards empowerment through holistic education, we wanted to join hands with the right organizations who can bring their strengths to fulfil our aspiration. In Embassy, we not only found a world-class real-estate expert that could help expand the Government Girls’ School, Devanahalli, in record time, but also an extremely committed partner that is passionate about activating its strong network to bring together multiple individual corporate CSR efforts, and thereby broaden the positive impact of societal change. We are now looking forward to an even stronger association with Embassy to make meaningful contribution to the society."
