On the 19th November 2017, Toyota Kirloskar Motor along with SEED CSR inaugurated a Mobile Medical Unit [MMU] and conducted a specialized health camp at Ramnagara. The whole event was conducted and managed by the field team of SEED CSR. The event was held at Government High School in Sheshagirihalli, where Toyota’s first employee volunteerism engagement ‘ICARE’ was initiated, which was aimed at inciting a sense of social responsibility and care towards the society among the employees.
The camp which was inaugurated by Ms. R. Latha, IAS – Chief Executive Officer, Zilla Panchayat [Ramanagara District], Ms. Sunanda Venkatesh, President – Manchanayakanahalli Gram Panchayat Dr. Arun Kumar, District Tuberculosis Officer and Dr. T. Amaranath, District Health Officer – Ramanagara District and Mr. Naveen Soni, Vice President, Toyota Kirloskar Motor.
This primarily aims at providing free medical check-up and Quality Healthcare facilities to the communities actively supported by Toyota employees in mobilizing of community members, raising awareness and providing assistance to ensure smooth functioning of the activity. Mobile Medical unit project was undertaken with an objective to cater to the medical requirements of the inaccessible villages by providing them the preventive & curative health care services and simultaneously strengthening the Government health care system as a sustainable measure.
In addition, specialized health camps were also organized and a team of specialized doctors (Gynecology, Dental, Pediatrics and General Medicine) attended the patients. We distributed medicines to the patients and gave them consultation for free; medical referrals and regular follow-ups would also be done for critical cases. Through MMU, we are aiming to bring down the life style prone diseases [such as Diabetes, Blood pressure, etc] and seasonal diseases [like Chikungunya, Dengue, Malaria, etc]. Also, owing to Byramangala lake contamination, more cases are registered under skin related diseases, which will be effectively addressed through this MMU in the surrounding villages.
Describing the Swachh Bharat Mission — a mission initiated 3 year back by our prime Minister Narendra Modi has seen an extreme reprove – being a social movement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi underlined that just as Swaraj was achieved by satyagrahis, cleanliness would become a reality through “swachhagrahis” (those who work for cleanliness).

Where on the one hand this diversity gives the nation its unique identity, on the other hand, it is also the root cause of a vast variety of social issues. It is a country that is developing but with massively underutilized potential and a considerable population that is difficult to provide for.

At SEED, we believe that programs initiated for Skill Development should create individuals who become competent enough to compete in the markets for the skills they possess. This is a feat that can only be achieved if training involves an adequate balance of theoretical knowledge and practical experience in order to master the trade. Our programs in our project areas include training in trades like electrical, computer, welding, automobile, among a wide variety of others. Keeping with this idea of a holistic training structure, students are also encouraged to take of extra classes, tests, Olympiads and practical submissions. Read More »
Providing skills and further, jobs for the youth are a predominant feature of the UN Sustainable Developments Goals agenda 2030. Education and training are the key determinants of succeeding in the labor market. However, currently a large proportion of the youth have low levels of achievement in basic literacy itself. This serves as a problem in the path towards developmental upliftment. It is because of this that the UN celebrates the Worth Youth Skills Day in order to spread awareness about the importance of imparting skills and encourages people and firms through CSR to take up Skill Development activities in target areas.
Under the Skill Rajasthan mission, World Youth Skills Day, declared by the UN, was celebrated at Birla Auditorium, Jaipur on July 15, 2017.
