20 June, 2023: RDC Concrete, an Indian ready-mix concrete manufacturer, announced Project PEUSC (Promoting Education for Underprivileged School Children) which is its latest initiative. Students from deprived sections of society from all over India, that includes over 70 similar schools will be supported in their education through this project. RDC Concrete is attempting to go beyond the traditional CSR efforts through this project which is aimed at creating a positive impact in the communities where the company operates. This project aims at engaging employees actively so that meaningful connections can be fostered with the school students.
The renovation of Ganesh Vidyalaya, in Kharegaon, Kalwa near Thane, was undertaken. This is a semi- government school for underprivileged children. The school had inadequate infrastructure which was resulting in the children facing various health issues. RDC Concrete upheld the importance of safe and hygienic learning environment by introducing this project. This was initiated ahead of the monsoons. The critical infrastructure needs were addressed and RDC Concrete installed a 1500 litre water tank. This ensured a steady and safe clean drinking water supply flor the students there. Water purifiers that were installed enhanced the water quality and further safeguarded the health of the students. Safety measures likes these will be crucial in preventing water borne diseases.
Apart from water issues, RDC Concrete also paid attention to other crucial issues like repair of the existing desks, procurement of new ones to create comfortable seating. Attention to essential amenities like these go a long way in contributing towards a conducive learning environment, which fosters a healthy growth and development for the child.

He further added that RDC Concrete through small initiatives like these aims to play a transformational role by helping students build a bright future not only for themselves but the country too.
