Participated in Airtel Delhi Half Marathon in collaboration with Smile foundation
Konica Minolta Business Solutions participated in the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon by sponsoring the education of underprivileged children as a CSR initiative in collaboration with Smile foundation. Few representatives from Konica Minolta ran in the event on Sunday, November 29, 2015. The Smile foundation will use the sponsored amount for the education of the underprivileged children which will help them in building a bright future.
Konica Minolta’s CSR initiative is implemented in close partnership with Smile foundation. Through the program, Konica Minolta works to enhance the quality of education by promoting learner friendly environment and school community relationships. With this in mind, in collaboration with Smile foundation, Konica Minolta has been supporting initiatives that benefit deprived children in India, and thereby facilitate national development, since the country has the largest number of children worldwide who are not enjoying the same standard of living or rights as the majority of children do.
Smile Foundation adamantly works towards providing education to underprivileged children under difficult circumstances such as child labour, children of poorest of the parents, children with rare disabilities, disaster struck children and slum children. Smile Foundation focuses on education of underprivileged children as a means to address issues like health, poverty, unemployment, human rights across India. Smile Foundation aspires to raise funds which would help the campaign “Send Every Child to School” under our Mission Education Programme.
“Our voluntary contribution to the Airtel Delhi Half Marathon is aimed at contributing to existing relief efforts. We deeply appreciate the commitment and leadership of Smile foundation managing the standard of living of the underprivileged children through “Send Every Child to School” campaign under the Mission Education Programme,” said, Yuji Nakata, Managing Director of Konica Minolta.
