This partnership is in line with the commitment of Hero MotoCorp of promoting the cause of inclusive education and learning.
In a recent MoU signed between Hero MotoCorp and the NWWA, Hero MotoCorp will lend its support to CHETNA which is an Early Intervention Center in Delhi. This centre provides speech therapy, occupational therapy, play and counselling to children who are born with neuro-developmental disabilities.
The initiative was launched under the Company’s CSR platform, “Hero We Care” as part of the flagship ‘Hero Salutes Heroes of the Nation’ program. The objective of this program is to support children in the early development stages, in their learning needs, aiding their progress through this stage and thereby enhancing the quality of their life.
The Early Intervention Centre, CHETNA provides support and therapies that help children under six years by minimizing the impact of neuro-developmental disabilities through multi-modality interventions. Children are assisted by CHETNA in achieving their maximum potential and promoting their integration into mainstream education.
President, NWWA, Mrs. Kala Hari Kumar said at the MOU signing ceremony that they welcomed the support extended by Hero MotoCorp for the special program. They were privileged to be a partner of the unique company initiative – ‘Hero Salutes Heroes of the Nation.’ She further added that both NWWA and the Indian Navy were deeply committed to the welfare of the children since they were their future.
Through this project, children with disabilities would be able to be a part of mainstream education by receiving support, to learn and grow. This would also make a huge difference not only in the lives of the children but also their parents on, learning how to support and care for the needs of their children.
Head – Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Corporate Communication, Hero MotoCorp, Mr. Bharatendu Kabi, said, that they were privileged to partner with the Navy Welfare and Wellness Association to support this noble cause. Their organization was committed to inclusion and equity and this program would help children suffering from neuro- developmental disabilities. This would give them the right support at an early age and also help them overcome developmental challenges. They would also work towards their inclusion in formal education. Under the “Hero We Care” CSR initiative and as part of the “Hero Salutes Heroes of the Nation” program Hero MotoCorp has partnered with paramilitary organizations and the armed forces which includes CRPF or the Central Reserve Police Force, the BSF or the Border Security Force and the DIAV or the Directorate of Indian Army Veterans, in the areas of livelihood, education and mobility solutions.
