NALCO to get President s Award for Excellent CSR in Recognition of NALCO ki Ladli Scheme

 

Bhubaneswar: National Aluminium Company Limited (NALCO), the Navratna CPSE under Ministry of Mines, Govt. of India, has been selected for the prestigious President’s Award for Excellent CSR. It may be mentioned that the Corporate Affairs Department, Govt of India, has selected NALCO for this award at the national level for introducing and implementing schemes like 'Nalco ki Ladli.'
 
Many social organizations have congratulated NALCO’s CMD, Dr. Tapan Kumar Chand for such innovative socially beneficial scheme. Congratulating the NALCO Collective on this achievement, Dr. Chand said, 'What began as an initiative to empower the girl child through a CSR programme called ‘NALCO ki Ladli’ is turning out to be a powerful trigger for women empowerment.'
 
The Scheme, provides adoption of poor girl students to enable them to study and settle in life. At present, NALCO has adopted 416 poor girl students from 66 villages Angul and Damanjodi sectors in 45 schools. The scheme promotes Hon’ble Prime Minister’s call for Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao. Under this scheme, which was launched in the year 2015, NALCO took great care to handpick meritorious girl children belonging to Below Poverty Line families located in periphery area of NALCO’s pants in Damanjodi, Angul and Pottangi in Odisha.  Apart from financially supporting the children from 8th standard to 10th standard, the Aluminium giant has gone beyond the script to empower the child. To ensure a holistic approach to education, beneficiaries are exposed to various programmes and co-curricular activities organized by NALCO from time to time, including sports activities, workshops, seminars and celebration of various events. NALCO has plans to scale up the scheme at Pan India level covering poor girl children of Odisha, aspirational districts of the country and NALCO’s peripheral villages. CSR experts say the scheme will immensely contribute for girl child education & women empowerment. 
 
With a view to augment the scheme, NALCO has launched an innovative Employee Social Responsibility (ESR) programme recently, which offers employees a satisfying way to meaningfully contribute towards social causes. Under this scheme, the employees of the company get a chance to adopt the Ladlis and support their education. This programme will enable the Company to augment the existing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program with ESR through direct participation of employees.
