Training & Skill Development:
Computer Training is most essential part of our modern era education and integrated with livelihood options for youth in modern day’s economy. It is becoming important to impart computer training from very early stage of education to children. But ironically, most of the rural based education institutions have not the facility of computer education. Considering the fact, Everest started its computer training program for rural adolescent (Girls and Boys) at Sikandar PUR village of Bhagwan Pur (Roorkee) Uttarakhand. To empower the women by imparting skill training and building their capacity to generate the income this will help them to improve their quality of life. Everest is running a ‘Sewing Centre’ at Churiyal village of Bhagwanpur (Roorkee) Uttarakhand. Healthcare & Sanitation:
The primary healthcare is still in vulnerable condition, while healthcare as a sector is the second largest industry in India. In the rural part of country accessibility of basic health care services is almost negligible. To cater basic health need of the community, Everest is organizing ‘Health Camps’ in adjacent villages of its plant locations. Approximately 600 million people in India is still forced for open defecation and is the amongst 10 worst countries to address the critical issue. This proves the susceptibility of sanitation practice in India. Apart from women safety, there are many implications of open defecation on the public health it affects to water and air contamination which leads many critical illnesses in the community. Mr. Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India has appealed to the nation to construct toilets in the rural areas and make country open defecation free (ODF) by 2019. With the objective to “improve the sanitation practice in Rural India by constructing toilet and drawing sustainable functional approach”, Everest initiated the toilet construction in the schools of its plant locations. Environment Sustainability:
To enable healthy, clean environment and mitigate the environmental challenges, Everest keeps doing plantation in peripheral areas of its plant locations and the lands allocated by Forest Department in various other locations. Approximately 15 hundred saplings are being planted in various locations for environment sustainability maintaining the ecological balance is also very important. Birds are also very critical for ecology and it is evident that many species of birds are getting eloped from ecology which is adversely affecting the environment at large. To sensitize community at large towards conserve the birds by creating the bird house, Everest initiated awareness drive with like-minded organizations and various activities are being done with school children.
