RBL Bank Inaugurates Suryoday RBL School for Children with Special Needs


Mumbai: RBL Bank as part of its CSR initiative inaugurated ‘Suryoday RBL School’, to support education for children with special needs. Managed by Suryoday Trust, this is the first such initiative in Vasai-Nalasopara, built to make children functionally independent adults who are well-integrated into society.

RBL Bank supported the construction of the school building and has extended help with the operating expenses for an initial period of four years. This contribution by the Bank has played a pivotal role in establishing a well-equipped school with modern infrastructure.

Currently, the school is operating out of 14 rented spaces in Nalasopara accommodating 50 children. With this inauguration, the school will move to the new school building at Vasai, enhancing its coverage area and capacity to accommodate more children, up to 100. Suryoday RBL School is the second that the Bank has supported as part of its CSR strategy of H.E.LO, which focused on supporting community-led work in the area of Health, Education and Livelihood Opportunities.

 R Subramaniakumar, MD & CEO, RBL Bank, said, “Every child, regardless of their abilities or challenges, deserves access to quality education and support tailored to their unique needs. This institution represents our commitment to inclusivity, providing a nurturing environment where every child can thrive and reach their full potential.”

Speaking on the occasion Balakrishnan Natarajan, Head – CSR at RBL Bank, said, “Let us embrace diversity and celebrate the resilience of these children, recognising that their differences enrich our communities and strengthen us. May this school be a source of inspiration and transformation, igniting hope and paving the way for a brighter future for all.”
