Heal on Wheel Campaign
Sparsh - A Healing Touch, the employee-led CSR initiative of Infosys Pune Development Centre (DC) conducted a mega fund raising and awareness campaign drive – Heal on Wheel. The six-week cycling campaign that pledged to raise funds for key projects in education, health, and community welfare, attracted more than 200 individuals including Infoscions and their family members.
The objective of the campaign was to generate funds to encourage and sponsor education at the high school and university levels, as well as address pressing social issues such as water filtration and disability aid. As part of the 50-kilometre ride, cyclists went across Maan and Darumbare village. The campaign received overwhelming support from more than 1,000 donors across the world and raised over INR 20 lakhs (approx. USD 29,000) to support projects like ‘FUEL a DREAM’ – scholarships for high school students; ‘Pratibha Poshak’ – scholarships for university students in partnership with the NGO Friends of Children; installation of community water filtration plants in villages and medical aid for the needy or persons with disability.
At the closing ceremony fund raisers and volunteers were felicitated by the senior management of Infosys Pune DC for their contribution.
