Corporate Social Responsibility
An integral part of the ethos at Avitech is a belief that an organization has the responsibility of enriching the community.
The Happy School
The Happy School, located in DLF City - Phase 1, Gurgaon, is an educational platform for the underprivileged. Started by Mrs Kamal Capoor in the lawn of her house in DLF city over a decade and a half ago, the Happy School now stands tall in a sprawling 3.5 acre campus in the same vicinity and has the motto of creating "Happy Childhood Memories"
The school is from pre nursery to class 5 and has over 400 students as on date. It imparts education at a monthly fee of Rs 5 and is supported by the government and corporates like Avitech.
The school has around 20 – 23 teachers, some of whom are volunteers and others are on its rolls. They all strive hard to provide quality education to build a strong foundation for this underprivileged but bright lot. The school also assists in placing these kids to secondary school after they complete their primary education. The Happy school finds donors for providing full scholarships for exceptional students so that they can be sent to private schools. Others find a seat in the local government school to enable them to continue their education.
Avitech is a long standing donor to this school to help in this noble cause.
