Gurgaon: Travel technology company, Fareportal India is expanding their humanitarian scope of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) through active partnership and participation with Nayi Disha and CanKids. Fareportal’s CSR goals fulfil both the financial and infrastructural requirements of these two organizations enabling numerous children from marginalised communities and those impaired by cancer to continue to receive education as a pillar of growth, awareness and general exposure to opportunities in the future.
Nayi Disha started in 2014 with the purpose to prepare and groom marginalised children for admission to regular schools. From just having a primary school, they have now introduced Class V through the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) to help older children continue their studies and not become school dropouts. They are in the process of training their teachers accordingly and have formed an alliance with an Accredited Institution of NIOS for enrolling their students in this curriculum. Nayi Disha is located is in the Harijan Colony in DLF Phase V, Gurgaon. In December 2018, they started a second school in Indira Colony 2, Ardee City, Gurgaon.
Fareportal has partnered with Nayi Disha since 2020 funding the infrastructure and teaching organisation to help them grow. Fareportal employees have engaged closely with the students at Nayi Disha in programmes that are run at the school. It has also hosted students of Nayi Disha as a way to encourage and motivate them allowing them to glimpse into the corporate world.
CanKids is another noble initiative that Fareportal is in partnership with to advocate for the Right to Education for health-impaired children with cancer. Between the CanShala, School Rooms in Care Centres and hospitals, and the Learning Activity clinics on the Chattai at OPDs, they aim to ensure that they keep the children learning and engaged throughout their treatment to be able to enrol and reintegrate them back into school after treatment.
