Jindal Steel & Power (JSP), a frontrunner in the steel industry, proudly announces its latest achievement – the Greentech CSR India Award 2023.
Recognising JSP’s exemplary efforts in the field of rehabilitation and empowerment of persons with disabilities, this esteemed award was presented by the Greentech Foundation.
JSP, operating through its CSR arm, the JSP Foundation, has been operating Jindal Asha (formerly known as Asha the Hope) in Odisha, Chhattisgarh, and Jharkhand since 2009.
These centers have significantly improved the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing state-of-the-art rehabilitation services, including early intervention, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, special education, speech therapy, audiometry, music and recreational therapy, counseling and guidance services, and skill development training. These initiatives empower PWDs to lead independent lives.
Expressing her elation, Shallu Jindal, Chairperson of the JSP Foundation, said, “We are deeply honored to receive this prestigious award. Our belief in the transformative power of inclusive practices has been validated, and this recognition reaffirms our ongoing commitment to building a society where equal opportunities are extended to everyone, regardless of their abilities. We remain steadfast in pushing boundaries and generating lasting positive impact.”
The impact of JSP’s initiatives is evident in the 5500+ differently-abled children who have received support for cognitive, social, and psychological development, alongside opportunities for skill development and special education. Furthermore, the center-based facilities extend various rehabilitation services in daycare mode to nearly 250 children with disabilities annually, with the added provision of free transportation from their homes to the centers. Annually, the JSP Foundation also provides healthcare, device support, and nutritional assistance to over 1,000 children with special needs.
This accolade follows JSP’s recognition by the Union Ministry of Corporate Affairs as the winner of the National CSR Award in two categories, including a commendation for its contribution to National Priority Areas (Support to Differently Abled) last year.
