Agility India supported several different organizations and schools with educational and health initiatives in 2020, reaching more than 650 individuals with their contributions.
In longstanding partnerships with the St. Joseph’s Night School, Seed Foundation, and the Pathway Foundation, Agility India supported more than 200 individuals through donating laptops, providing soft skills computer training, paying teachers’ salaries and fees, and donating essential food items to families supported by the organizations.
Many students were unable to read when first joining the Seed Foundation. In 2020, several students received a score of 70% in their national exams due to Agility India’s massive support over the years in tutoring students of all ages.
Agility India also supported more than 400 students at local schools in two villages near Pune; part of its initiative to help develop rural schools. The Agility volunteers worked with the school administration to set up a water purifier to ensure safe drinking water, installed solar panels on school grounds to help reduce electricity costs by nearly 60%, outfitted a science lab and a computer lab, and built washroom facilities to help encourage female students to continue their secondary education studies.
The India team also worked with Samarthanam, a local nonprofit for the visually impaired, to administer training sessions to 30 young adults on CV writing and conduct mock interviews for them to prepare for job interviews in the future. Agility India also worked with global team members, recruiting more than 80 employee volunteers to record audiobooks in Arabic, French, Spanish, and English for visually impaired youth and adults benefitting from Samarthanam’s library.
In addition to supporting the Dilasa Karyashala organization to distribute essential items to families of disabled children seeking support from the organization during COVID-19 lockdowns.
