In addition, the program has health and hygiene awareness sessions, aimed at equipping students with the knowledge necessary for maintaining good health. So far, this program has reached over 10,000 children in more the 180 schools within Ramanagara district.
Furthermore, TSAP program is also extended to the community through the Health camps. These camps provide an array of medical checks like random blood sugar tests, vision and dental examinations, ECGs, along with the distribution of essential medicines. This program provides health care facilities to the villages making it accessible for all community members. In this current year, TKM has conducted health camps in 18 villages and positively impacting more than 1100 individuals.
Speaking on the initiative, Mr. Vikram Gulati, Country Head and Executive Vice President, Toyota Kirloskar Motor said, “In line with our commitment for community well-being, the Toyota Shaale Arogya Program, alongside our other healthcare endeavors like Community Health Centre and Water Purifications Units reflects our dedication to making a meaningful difference in the lives of community members, especially focusing on the well-being of children, fostering a brighter future. As we navigate the path ahead, our pledge to create a healthier society and nation, remains resolute as we are driven by the belief that sustainable progress begins with the well-being of our children and communities.”
