This was actualized through two welfare programmes which commenced in 2007. The first was the School Adoption Programme intended to provide support to a Government owned school in Trivandrum. The second being the Scholarship Programme for aiding underprivileged students to pursue education in recognized schools in Trivandrum.
In 2017 - through the Graeme Dewart Scholarship programme, RM sponsored fees of 30 students from various schools and colleges in Trivandrum. A majority of these students were from economically backward sections of the society. There were school students from 7th to 11th standard and college students pursuing various courses like B Com, B Sc , B Tech, MCA, M Arch.
In 2016 - the Company distributed school shoes to over 320 underprivileged students of Thiruvalloor school and Karichar School. Thiruvalloor school is a new addition this year. Our Group CEO - David Brooks, RM ESI CEO -Connell Viegas, HR Director - Angela Sherwood and HR Head - Aditi Radhakrishnan committed to pay the salaries for the English and Computer teachers for the academic year of 2016 in Thiruvalloor school. We also presented essential furniture for the classrooms of Thiruvalloor school.
In 2014 - shoes were distributed to all the 145 students of the Karichar School. In early February, the students visited the RM ESI premises to understand how an IT company works. Their interactions with the staff motivated them immensely.
In 2013 - the company distributed toys, classroom chairs, shoes to students. The salaries of the Computer teacher and English teacher were paid by RM ESI.
In 2012 - RM helped rebuild the school's Science Lab with electrical fittings, plumbing and lab furniture. School uniforms, shoes, plates for the mid-day meal and toys were distributed to all the students.
Since 2007 to 2011 - through the School Adoption Programme, RM donated the following items to Kazhakootam Government School: a public address system including an amplifier, speakers etc, a Laser printer, chairs, books, several sports and play equipment.
I see this as part of our social responsibility and being in the education field we are very keen to see our kids growing up to be good citizens. We'd just like to do our bit to contribute to their learning process in any way we can
