A new social initiative aims to help improve conditions at school to increase enrollments and decrease absenteeism.

 

New Delhi. Bharti Walmart, the joint venture between Bharti Enterprises and Walmart Stores Inc, committed to adopt 50 Government schools across 50 cities in India, under a unique school support initiative 'Masti Ki Paathshaala', in collaboration with Hope Foundation. The initiative which will positively impact over 20,000 children, of which 15,000 would be girls, aligns with the company's overarching goal of serving people beyond the store and to be the 'Store of the Community'.

Speaking on the initiative, Bharti Walmart Managing Director and CEO, Raj Jain, said, "Our school adoption program, 'Masti Ki Paathshaala' aims to ensure that children enroll and attend school. We will help to enhance the quality of education and better the infrastructure to make schools more conducive to learning and fun to attend. We will also monitor the health and well-being of these children through various interventions."

Ian Correa, Chief Executive Officer, HOPE foundation, India said, "This is an important initiative as it will increase the chances of children completing school before choosing college or a vocation (or both)."

As part of the initiative, Bharti Walmart will help improve school infrastructure with furniture such as desks, chairs, blackboards, cupboards, among others. Further, employees of Bharti Walmart will volunteer at schools to teach children about importance of education, life skills, health and hygiene. The initiative would also recognize and reward the best performing girl students to motivate them to continue their academic pursuits.
