Bengaluru: Rotary and Tata Trusts today announced a five-year collaboration to advance socio-economic indicators through multi-thematic interventions across India. The collaboration will scale efforts in multiple areas like Healthcare, Cancer Care, Covid Care, Nutrition, Rural Uplift, Livelihoods, Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene and Education, among others.
The announcement follows a Memorandum of Understanding signed by Mr. Mehrab Irani, Group CFO, Tata Trusts, and Mr. Ashok Mahajan, Chairman, Rotary India Humanity Foundation (RIHF), in the presence of Rotary International’s President (2021-22), Mr. Shekhar Mehta, and Mr. N. Srinath, CEO, Tata Trusts, among other dignitaries on 17 June 2021.
Since more than a century, Tata Trusts and Rotary have endeavoured to contribute to the larger goal of nation-building through multi-thematic programmes executed at scale in geographies that require immediate intervention. The interventions, designed with the communities, aim to enhance socio-economic welfare and aid the transition to more ecologically cohesive practices in a sustainable way.
Addressing all 17 SDGs of the United Nations, and in line with the Government of India’s vision, Rotary and Tata Trusts’ programmes are driven by their desire to create impact that is deep, wide and sustainable by strengthening communities through pointed interventions, supplemented by technology and data, relevant to their needs.
