The social initiatives programme of ICICI Securities has over the years focused mainly on two areas: providing education and health to the poor and marginalized children from our society.
Under the aegis of ICICI Foundation
, ICICI Securities provides both financial and volunteering support to the following two organisations:
Door Step School - One of the most long standing associations has been with Door Step, a NGO focused on spreading education to children residing in the slums. The Colaba Municipal School, which is managed by the Mumbai Municipal Corporation along with Door Step, was adopted by ICICI Securities in 2004. The firm not only provides funds for hiring teachers, books and other educational needs but also encourages its employees to spend some quality time with the children through various activities like Diya making during Diwali or playing a cricket match with the children.
Muktangan - ICICI Securities has also adopted the pre-primary section of a municipal school in Lower Parel, Mumbai. This school is run by the Paragon Charitable Trust through their CSO called Muktangan. Managed in collaboration with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), Muktangan conducts its classes in English. ICICI Securities supports this educational programme that offers alternatives to orthodox educational practices.
