Goodyear India Limited, as part of Goodyear’s Better Future CSR strategy, is supporting the Government Girls Primary School (GGPS) in Faridabad and Ballabhgarh, Haryana in its aim to enhance the quality and accessibility of education for female students. Goodyear supported infrastructural development and education quality enhancement activities in both the schools, including:

  • Creating awareness and promoting good sanitation habits amongst children by providing toilet blocks and safe drinking water facilities,

  • Upgrading school infrastructure for holistic growth by renovating playgrounds and planting trees,

  • Addressing dropout rates through interventions and

  • Contributing to improve the academic performance of children by providing an e-learning infrastructure. 

To encourage the female students, Goodyear India Limited and HPPI hosted an event to inaugurate the revamped schools on International Women’s Day (March 8) at the Government Girls Primary School, Ballabgarh. This event celebrated and recognized the contribution of females in various fields of academics, sports and other co-curricular activities. The event was a step towards ensuring equal educational opportunities for female students and ensuring equal access to educational amenities. 

Mr. Sandeep Mahajan, Chairman and Managing Director, Goodyear India Limited, said “We are delighted to support Government schools in Faridabad and Ballabhgarh for driving accessibility to education for the girls and improve their participation rate in schooling and primary education. This is aligned to our CSR policy and vision for a better future.
