Lakshya Road Safety Under-15 Cricket Tournament (Jaipur)

The goal of the Lakshya Road Safety league is to promote road safety awareness and etiquette. It also seeks to promote the value and importance of sports, as part of a healthy lifestyle, especially for children. This initiative by Kogta Foundation to promote Road Safety Awareness, the Good Samaritan Law and Sports as an integral aspect of the lives of children. The annual Cricket Tournament, held in Jaipur, was once again co- sponsored by Kogta to promote this mission.

 

Pan-India mask donation drive during COVID-19

Acknowledging that mass-produced facial masks, which conform to safety norms, was the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Kogta undertook a pan-India mask donation drive in April 2020. The masks that were donated offered protection that was akin to N95 masks, were crafted from commonly available materials, comfortable to wear for extended periods of time and were reusable.

 

Tree Plantation

At Kogta, we frequently organise tree planting drives. Our team plants trees around our operations areas, but also secures their survival by installing tree guards and nurturing the saplings until they mature into trees.

 

Medical Donation

Kogta has been a benefactor to Pratham Shreni Pashu Chikitsalaya at Bijainagar in Ajmer, Rajasthan, towards caring for the well-being of domestic animals, like buffaloes, etc.

 

Distribution of Blankets

Between December 2020 and January 2021, Jaipur recorded its 2nd lowest temperatures in 55 years. Many residents in the slums were suffering due to this severe cold. Kogta Foundation donated blankets to keep them warm. Majority of these blankets were distributed to the elderly, who were living alone, and to people from extremely poor families.

 

Blood Donation Drive

Giving blood is often associated with saving lives. People with illnesses and medical conditions, such as anemia, hemophilia, cancer and sickle cell disease often need blood transfusions to survive. The World Health Organisation (WHO) suggests using the blood quota of 1% of a country’s population as a rough approximation of its blood requirements. According to those figures, India faces a 1.9-million- unit blood shortage, which translates into about 60 tankers (according to FY. 2016-17 Government of India statistics).

 

Installation of Water Coolers at RTO Bhilwara and Anuthiya Gav, near Bijainagar

Several water coolers have been installed by Kogta Financial (India) Limited at RTO Bhilwara and Anuthiya Gav, near Bijainagar in Rajasthan, in order to provide chilled potable drinking water throughout the warm summers. We also ensure that these water coolers are repaired and maintained in a timely manner.

Education

We extended financial assistance to Udhbhav School, location. The funds are being used to meet the school’s girl child education programme – Umeed. By supporting this academic programme, we aim to provide these young girls the foundation they need to be self-reliant and successful in the future.

 

SPORTS

We also contributed towards the distribution of track suits in Government School at Bijainagar, Ajmer, Rajasthan. Sports and physical activity are an important aspect of life and this support towards the right attire will help the students to be more active.

 

ENVIRONMENT CONSERVATION

We also supported PSR Global Foundation in their tree plantation drive. The team not only plants trees around its operation sites, but it also ensures their survival by erecting tree guards and carefully nurtures them till the sapling matures into a tree.

 

ANIMAL PROTECTION

Among our other CSR projects was the donation made to Shri Pinjarapole Gaushala to provide monetary assistance for cow fodder. The dual benefit of this activity is that it also provides livelihood to the peoples undertaking day to day care of Cows.

 

Healthcare

At Kogta Financial (India) Limited, we believe everyone has a right to clean and safe drinking water for good health. Keeping this belief in mind, we contributed towards the preparation of sheltered drinking water facility and installation of water cooler at Bijainagar School, Rajasthan. Through this intervention, we aim to provide drinking water facilities to children coming from nearby districts and to the local communities to ensure sound health and welfare for all.

 

Education

Promoting education to enhance livelihoods has always been at theheart of our CSR agenda. We envision providing a safe and conducive environment for child education and nurture holistic development. Towards this, we made a donation to a school situated in Pushkar, Rajasthan. Focus is on enabling the young ones to grow into capable, responsible, educated and self-sufficient citizens.

 

GAU SEVA - (Caring for Cows)

As supporters of the welfare of cows and their protection from being sent to slaughter houses, we contributed to their upkeep at a shelter which provides them with food and cares for them. The dual benefit of this activity is that it also provided livelihoods to people undertaking these activities.

 

Cricket for the Underprivileged

We believe that playing sports builds character and enhances self-confidence. We focus on promoting cricket, a sport that is loved by the entire nation, by actively participating in training youth from underprivileged communities.
