One of the key philosophies of Rakuten is contribute to the society by empowering the merchants and enhance their lives, while offering some of the best products in the world to the customers. And that empowerment looks beyond businesses. In contributing to standing up to what we believe, Rakuten India has incepted some of the passionate individuals who want to go out there and contribute to the local societies that range across schools to old age homes, from lending help to underprivileged to needy animals via Corporate Social Responsibility wing. The team has been active for the past 3 years in various initiatives while making use of the contributions that everyone else wants to make passively. Some of the key events have been to help out the Kitchens in ISKON that serves lacs of children everyday with healthy lunch, working and inspiring the kids of a nearby government school, working with Goonj to help the needy with things such as clothing, educational assets and so on to name a few.
Rakuten India CSR team took an initiative to fulfil the wishes of underprivileged and disabled children through Daan Utsav (Joy of Giving) program, We are also committed to help Samarthanam trust. We came up with a "Wish Tree" putting together many wishes of their beneficiaries. We picked a few wishes and gave an opportunity for all our employees to play the secret angel and help spread smiles on Children's faces.
It's the festival season and all of us gift our loved ones, family and friends with new clothes, sweets and goodies. The CSR team has brought all the employees an opportunity to spread more joy and happiness to one of the orphanages in ShriRampura. They collected a pair of clothes for everyone in the Orphanage including the staff. Our employees went there, shared the goodies collected, organised fun activities and had Lunch with them. We are so happy that we could bring such happiness to the Children.
