Speaking on HIF’s commitment towards building a relationship of trust with the community to contribute to developing a sustainable society, Mr. Vinay Dhingra, Trustee, Honda India Foundation said, “Honda India Foundation is dedicated to creating positive social impact. By partnering with the Marriott Group of Hotels, we aim to leverage our collective strengths to make a real difference in the lives of young individuals from marginalised sections of society. Through the signing of this MOU, we envision a brighter future for the youth where learning knows no bounds and opportunities are limitless. It is our sincere belief that by investing in ‘skill development’, we are also investing in ‘self’ development and ‘societal development’.

Project Buniyaad establishes four distinct foundations of collaboration with Honda India Foundation as the funding partner, the State Government as the Infrastructure and Mobilization Support partner, Visan Foundation as the Training partner and all the leading hotels as the Placement partner. With Marriott as the placement partner, the MOU promises to create a seamless pathway for these trained individuals to secure employment in the various Marriot properties across the country.

Honda’s corporate philosophy is founded on the fundamental principles of “Respect for the Individual” and the “Three Joys” to support Honda’s universal passion: to improve the quality of people’s daily lives. This MOU aligns with Honda’s fundamental principles and harmonises its long-term mission of becoming a ‘Company that Society wants to Exist’.
