Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has built girl’s toilets at the primary government school in Sankhol village under CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) to promote our government initiatives of Swatch Bharat Swatch Vidyalaya program.
Yokohama India regularly has been conducting tree-planting programs under the global Forever Forest Project of Yokohama Rubber Co. and also recently installed RO system and water cooler in the government school.
Girl’s Toilets in school will provide comfort, convenience with a sense of security and dignity to every girl. The project is also expected to improve good hygiene practices and create awareness towards health and sanitation.
During Independence Day speech, Prime Minister Modi had outlined his vision of all schools having separate toilets for boys and girls within a year. He had also appealed to the corporate sector to build toilets in schools as a part of their CSR.
Ms. Jyotsna Aswal, General Manager – HR & GA of Yokohama India said “The school has around 300 students with approximately 50% girls, however, the toilets in the school were in bad shape and caused serious hygiene and health issues among others. This small step by us has not only provided a big relief to the girl students and the female staff in the school but has also helped in raising hygiene awareness.”
