Pune, 22 Nov 2022: Piaggio Vehicles Pvt Ltd (PVPL), a 100 % subsidiary of the Italian Piaggio Group, celebrated Daan Utsav in association with Initiatives in Development and Education for All (IDEA) Foundation.
Daan Utsav is India’s biggest annual festival of giving. For this year’s Daan Utsav, PVPL joined hands with the IDEA Foundation which works towards the holistic development of underprivileged children, youth, and women. Through this association, PVPL employees performed various acts of kindness through volunteering, fulfilling wishes, or providing monetary help to over 1100 disadvantaged children.
One such initiative saw PVPL put up Wish Trees across IDEA’s Learning Centers Khanvasti, Ramnagar, Lamanvasti, Gopalvasti, Hadapsar, and Bhor, where students could share their desires of getting new storybooks, pencil boxes, or even birthday cakes and chocolates. PVPL employees came together to collect these gifts and fulfill these small yet impactful wishes.
Additionally, an exhibition was organized at Piaggio’s corporate office, where women under the IDEA’s livelihood project had set up stalls for handmade items such as diyas, aroma candles, herbal soaps, and wall hangings, among other knick-knacks. Apart from these initiatives, PVPL employees participated in this festival of giving by donating books, study materials, clothes, and toys to kids at the shelter homes.
Ms. Pooja Bansal, Chief Human Resource Officer, Piaggio Vehicles Pvt. Ltd., said, “Creating a strong business & building a better world are not conflicting goals as both are essential for long term success. Piaggio believes in giving back to society & has always been committed to uplifting and empowering communities. We are grateful that we were able to bring joy into some children’s lives in a small yet meaningful way during Daan Utsav. We are equally rejoiced to see our employees come in full force to make this initiative successful and bring out their spirit of kindness.”
