District 3212 is all set to provide better sanitation and education to 23 schools in and around Nagercoil, a temple town on the southernmost tip of the Indian peninsula. The district has struck a partnership with Kanam Latex Industries, manufacturers of surgical and examination gloves. This is the district’s maiden CSR-global grant initiative, with RC Lexington, RID 6740, the US, as international partners and TRF.
“When PDG Chinnadurai Abdullah approached Kurian Abraham, the corporate’s founder, with a plan to upgrade schools in the region, he readily agreed to support. Abraham is a member of RC Nagercoil for 53 years now,” said N Karthikeyan, District Chairman for CSR.
The project involves providing sanitary napkin vending machines, incinerators, wash stations and e-learning in 23 schools at an outlay of $40,875 and 23 clubs adopted a school each for the project.
The facilities were inaugurated recently by DG K Rajagopalan in the presence of PDG Chinnadurai Abdullah and Abraham.
