Empowering People

Intex Technologies has always endeavored to actively support community building initiatives in every sphere that the company operates in. The company's CSR philosophy is to influence its legacy of technology innovation to positively influence societies and human life, and offer new opportunities to more people.

Some of the CSR initiatives undertaken by Intex in the recent past are:-

1. Intex Technologies partners with Gyan Shakti Vidyalaya to provide holistic learning to 500 Underprivileged Children

A step towards integrated learning, Intex Technologies has partnered with Gyan Shakti Vidyalaya (the School-after-School) for the upliftment of around 500 underprivileged children in Delhi and Noida. This collaboration is aimed at providing education as well as skills to those who have been deprived of basic socio-economic needs, thereby helping them to enter the mainstream of society. Intex is supporting Gyan Shakti Vidyalaya in this endeavor to provide the deprived children with holistic learning opportunities. The aim is to provide supervision, guidance and inspiration to significantly improve their academic achievements, communication skills, self-confidence and overall personality development.

2. Intex Technologies and Jaya Foundation Collaborate to Support Children Fighting Cancer

When you or your loved one is battling life threatening ailments such as Cancer, one needs access to every single weapon available. Hence, Intex Technologies has given its support for children fighting cancer by partnering a fund raising event … NANHEE, with Jaya Foundation in Mumbai in October 2016. The institution provides aid, care & assistance and create awareness programmes in Cancer, to support children suffering from life threatening diseases.

Funds raised by the event were used to facilitate treatment of kids who are suffering from cancer but due to lack of adequate funds are deprived of proper treatment.

3. Intex Technologies donates 50,000 stationary kits worth Rs 5 lakhs to underprivileged kids

One must experience the joy of giving without any reason. Adhering to this principle, Intex became a part of the 'Joy of Giving Week' campaign on Snapdeal and donated 50,000 stationary kits worth Rs 5 lakh this Diwali as a part of the campaign for underprivileged kids. The campaign took place from 1st-10th October, 2016 on Snapdeal Sunshine and the stationary kits (that included Natraj pencils, an eraser, a sharper and a ruler) were delivered directly to partnering NGOs like Teach for India, GiveIndia, Bhumi, The Community Initiative, Care India, etc; which are actively working for education of underprivileged kids across the country.
