Giving back is at the heart of everything we do.
Our first initiative sits particularly close to our hearts. The Essentials Story has partnered with SNEHA, a non-profit organization that works with women and children in the dense slums of Mumbai close to our factories. With little ability to social distance and a critical need for sanitary supplies, these struggling communities are facing an unprecedented health crisis and increasing economic fragility.
in 2022 we started an initiative, where we supported children in the poorest districts of Mumbai with their school fees so that they could continue online classes, sit their end-of-year exams to go onto the next grade and even be allowed back into their school premises.
In many families, the earning members of families have either lost their jobs or their earnings have been drastically reduced because of Covid which resulted in many children's basic right of going to school being taken away from them overnight. We were able to step in, pay their fees & help these children go back to school.
We also support the local community around our factory in Nashik by assisting local farmers, donating to local charities and organizing blood donation camps and health checkups for the local community.
