Canon CSR Anniv
Canon India has completed four successful years of its flagship CSR initiative 'Adopt a Village'. Canon commenced this CSR activity in Ferozepur Namak village in Haryana in November, 2012. This month, Canon announced the launch of a vocational training program to empower the youth in the villages.
Over the years, Canon has adopted 4 villages across the country namely; Ferozepur Namak in Haryana, Maharaja Katte in Bangalore, Karanjoti in Thane, Maharashtra, and Sol Gohalia in West Bengal. The vision with the adoption is to redefine the lives of people in and around the village by providing them with facilities for a self-sustainable living.
Mr. Kazutada Kobayashi, President and CEO, Canon India, said, "Our consistent efforts towards making villages self-reliant have shown stupendous results. As we touch the landmark of four years of 'Adopt a Village' today, I am delighted to announce the launch of a skill development training program at our first adopted village. Under this program, we are providing computer training to the students and villagers, supporting them to become empowered in the long run.”
Along with the launch of the vocational training centre, a cricket match, cultural performances, tree plantation drive were organised to mark the anniversary
