Tanla Foundation's Impact on ESG and Skill Development
The world is changing at an unprecedented pace, and we at Tanla believe that companies have a significant role to play in shaping that change. It's no longer just about profit margins and market shares; it's about our responsibility to our communities and our planet. This philosophy is deeply embedded in our DNA and is what guides us in our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives.
Through the Tanla Foundation, we strive to fulfill this commitment to our community every day. We've always seen ourselves as more than just a business - we are a part of society, and we believe it's our duty to help build a sustainable future for everyone.
One way we do this is through our skill development programs. We firmly believe in the power of education and skills to change lives, especially for those in underprivileged communities. It's not just about equipping people with skills for today's jobs; it's about empowering them with tools for lifelong learning and success.
Join us on a journey that showcases our steadfast commitment to social responsibility and sustainability. Discover how the Tanla Foundation embodies our determination to create a brighter and more inclusive future for all in this article.
Empowering through Skill Development - Tanla Foundation's Journey so Far
Tanla's PILLARS initiative encapsulates our commitment to nurturing individual potential. We've transformed rural government school education by introducing digital learning and additional academic support, benefiting over 560 students. Our extracurricular events have engaged hundreds, while our partnership with Labour Net - Sambhav, led to vocational training and job placement for 108 youths, further highlighting our dedication to comprehensive, quality education and skill development.
Our collaboration with the National Academy of Construction (NAC) underscores our mission of providing vocational education to those in need. We have trained individuals in various domains such as Electrical House Wiring, Land Surveying, and Plumbing & Sanitation, amongst others. Our placement record demonstrates our commitment to the cause: with a 100% placement rate across many of our courses, we are not just training individuals, but also helping them secure a better future.
Practical Impact: Training to Placement
At Tanla, we understand the power of giving back. As a company that took its first steps in Hyderabad, we feel a deep connection with this city. Its vibrant spirit and relentless drive for progress have been a significant part of our journey, and it brings us immense pride to contribute towards its growth.
Our impact doesn't stop at the classroom door, it follows our trainees out into the world, into their careers and their lives. And the numbers speak for themselves.
In the inaugural batch trained as part of our partnership with the NAC, a total of 100 candidates were trained in essential technical skills such as storekeeping, electrical work, and plumbing, providing them with ample opportunities to flourish professionally. An astounding 90% of these students from the first batch secured employment immediately upon graduation. This success story continued with the second batch where 75 out of 84 trained individuals were successfully placed, further cementing the company's dedication and commitment towards fostering an environment that enables success.
Take our Electrical House Wiring course, for instance. We trained 20 individuals in collaboration with the National Academy of Construction (NAC). Following their training, all 20 of these trainees have found employment, with many placed at reputable companies in Hyderabad.
Similarly, our Storekeeper course resulted in all 9 trainees finding gainful employment. Our other courses like Land Surveyor, Supervisor Structure, and Plumbing & Sanitation also boast 100% placement rates, with our trainees gaining employment at esteemed firms like Ashoka Builders and 360Life.
Lastly, our Backhoe Load Operator course has made a significant impact, with all 14 trainees finding employment at renowned establishments like Aparna Enterprises Ltd and Thirupathi JCB Works.
The success of these programs is not just about the numbers, but the lives they change. Every placement represents a person equipped with new skills, earning a sustainable income, and contributing positively to their community.
Fostering Sustainable Education through Community Engagement and Environmental Advocacy
As part of our mission to holistically nurture education and skill development, we recognize the importance of engaging with our stakeholders and championing environmental consciousness.
We've established a comprehensive Stakeholder Engagement Mechanism to foster direct dialogue with our community. Regular meetings are conducted involving school staff, parents, school management committees, and local community leaders. These discussions revolve around our educational initiatives, skill development programs, and their planned impacts. Such interactions enable us to align our educational objectives with the actual needs of the community, ensuring our efforts are not only well-received but also highly effective.
Towards a Sustainable Future
With every initiative and program we implement, we are fuelled by the vision of a sustainable future. At Tanla, we firmly believe that this future begins with empowered individuals - those who have the skills, knowledge, and confidence to navigate the challenges of the world.
This vision forms the bedrock of our environmental advocacy and underpins our commitment to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Quality Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth, and Climate Action. As we forge ahead, we are mindful of these global objectives, aligning our efforts to contribute to a more sustainable and equitable world.
Tanla's journey is defined not only by the growth we've achieved as a company but more importantly, by the impact we've had on our communities. Through skill development and quality education, we've had the privilege of lighting the spark of learning and self-reliance in hundreds of individuals. We take immense pride in being a part of their stories of transformation and progress.
As we look forward to expanding our reach, we are reminded of the very heart of our work: our commitment to sustainable development and community empowerment. True to our roots in Hyderabad and our expanding footprint across India, we continue to seek ways to uplift, inspire, and create a positive impact.
