Thiruvananthapuram: Technopark-based Navigant India celebrated its annual ‘Joy of Giving Week’ by rolling out a variety of charity programmes in Thiruvananthapuram and Nagercoil. All employees working at Navigant India’s Technopark and Nagercoil locations got together to celebrate the Joy of Giving event. Navigant India is a consulting company which is into specialised, global professional services, and has operations in Thiruvananthapuram Technopark and Nagercoil.
Navigant India’s Joy of Giving charity activities were held earlier thism month. This programme began with a visit to the Divine Children’s Charitable Home at Mudavanmugal, where kits containing provisions were handed over to inmates. The company staff, along with the members of Karunya - the CSR committee of Navigant India - and the senior leadership team visited the charitable home and handed over the kits.
As part of the week-long CSR programme, Navigant India employees raised funds for two charity organisations - State Institute for the Mentally-Challenged at Pangappara, and Anbin Sigaram at Nagercoil - both of which are supported by the company. A full day was spent with games stalls set up at various spots at Thiruvananthapuram Technopark and also at the company’s Nagercoil office. People were asked to participate in fun games and the entire proceedings were given to charity.
This apart, fundraiser food stalls were set up at both the locations where food items made by the employees were sold. The entire proceedings collected from sale were also given to charity. Funds raised from the games and food stalls amounted to around Rs. 70,000. As part of the event, Navigant employees under the Karunya CSR Committee visited the Santhimandiram in Thiruvananthapuram and spent some time with the inmates and carried home-cooked food and kits for the employees.
The company’s Joy of Giving Week also included celebrations with the security guards and housekeeping staff at Navigant India, at both the locations. The company employees thanked them for the selfless services rendered day in and day out. The security and housekeeping staff members were presented with takeaway kits, an evening tea session with games, gifts and refreshments.
