Service and community are essential threads in Synergy’s fabric. We believe that empathy, education, self-reliance, hunger eradication and empowerment are vital, and through the Synergy Educational and Charitable Trust (SECT) and the Government to Citizen Changemakers Foundation (Go2C) we have created and maintained numerous initiatives in striving for a better society with a brighter future, with key help for those who are marginalised.
SECT focuses on providing schooling, tackling hunger and poverty and assisting communities with sustainable development in building towards a better India. Among its many activities are specific projects such as Sustain (the creation of a self-maintaining model suitable for any small village), Care (self-sufficiency by helping with core needs) and Vruddi (basic educational infrastructure and amenities).
In tackling a great many societal issues, Go2C links all relevant stakeholders in the public, private, government and NGO sectors in concentrated action and efficient delivery of services where they are needed.
For example, Go2C has partnered with the Indian Red Cross Society in establishing a motorcycle ambulance service for remote and difficult terrain. The Panchkula and Kalam Express is a school on wheels for those with special needs. The Aloka Vision Programme provides eye care in rural areas, the Cochin Cancer Society helps screen women in Kerala and (in coordination with the Women & Child Department in Haryana) a Go2C nutrition scheme supports undernourished children.
