Syngene undertakes a series of measures to address the needs of education, health, civic infrastructure, housing, water and sanitation in rural Karnataka. Rural development projects have far-reaching positive impacts, and CSR-prompted initiatives can secure real and lasting benefits.
In Haliyal taluk in Uttara Kannada district, Karnataka, Syngene constructed and equipped a women’s hostel for rural women to enable training in vocational skills for women from the weaker sections of society at the Canara Bank Deshpande Rural Self-Employment Training Institute. The institute offers 38 training programs in fields as diverse as manufacturing & production, IT and agriculture.
The improvement in civic, health and educational infrastructure is fundamental to boost economic growth and development of rural communities. Syngene helps improve access to markets and employment opportunities by connecting rural settlements through road construction, to urban hubs.
To augment learning and development at the local level, we have built and restored classrooms in schools and junior colleges. To protect and preserve community health, Syngene tries to improve public health infrastructure and services in rural areas.
In a concerted effort to make rural areas Open Defecation Free (ODF), Syngene established multiple community sanitary complexes. The initiative which complements the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan of the Government of India also looks at providing supporting utilities in terms of access to water for toilet hygiene and septic tanks.
