We at Rockwell Collins India, are committed to our society and the environment and we strive to become responsible corporate citizens. Rockwell Collins India, through its Corporate Social Responsibility initiative in India – Sahaayam (meaning help in Sanskrit language), has been involved in several social activities.
We have adopted Government schools to encourage education and help uplift the literacy rate. Rockwell Collins India takes care of all their infrastructure needs and also manage various drives like distribution of books and winter clothing. We conduct events all through the year to keep the students engaged. (Annual day, Sports day, Republic day, Independence Day etc).
Students from these adopted schools were trained by the employees and selected for participation in “Chiguru-2016”, an interschool competition for government school children across Hyderabad. It had 15 different events including cultural, sports and education competitions.
Research and Development
We are involved in academic research with one of the premier institutes in India. Kindling the innovation spirit in the young generation to help address the rural needs via technological advance products and solutions. One such initiative being to develop autonomous navigation of unmanned air vehicles for farm surveillance.
Majority of the uneducated and unemployed population in the cities are slum dwellers. In order to open avenues for them to get employment opportunities, Rockwell Collins India has started a Computer Center in a major slum to impart computer education.
This has seen several success stories where the youth have utilized this skill center to either get self-employed or get placed in other organizations. This has motivated the other youth in the area to join the Skill center to increase their job opportunities.
Health & Sanitation
When a cancer patient’s medical team determines that the cancer can no longer be controlled, medical testing and cancer treatment stops. But the patient’s care can continue at a Hospice centre. This care focuses on making the patient comfortable by providing treatment, medication, counseling and mental strength to face the inevitable end. Rockwell Collins India supports such an initiative for terminally – ill cancer patients.
We are actively supporting a center for Differently-abled children, by helping infrastructural needs like a providing a car to help bring regular medical aid to the center and construction of a Pyramid building (meditation center) helps hyperactive, distracted children to improve their concentration.
Rockwell Collins India employees have been voluntarily participating in the events and always look forward to giving back to the society as often as possible. The CSR team identifies various projects / needs in the community; teams up with recognized Non-Governmental organizations after due diligence; fund it where necessary and engage the volunteering employees accordingly. During the last year we had approximately 15 major events on the weekends, and each of those events had an average participation of about 60 employees resulting in about 7200 Volunteering hours.
The positive impact keeps driving Rockwell Collins India and its employees to make more such contributions to the society we work and live in.
