Pune, 4th July 2023: Embassy REIT, India’s first publicly listed Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), has introduced “Corporate Connect,” a powerful platform that bridges the gap between corporates eager to make a positive impact on society but often struggle to identify how.

Driven by its vision for a better India, Shaina Ganapathy, Head of Community Outreach at Embassy, invites other corporates to join hands and extend their support to various social causes. This initiative aims to empower businesses to create a meaningful impact, provide assistance and resources, foster a culture of collective action, and facilitate corporate contributions to the community.

As a company with an esteemed portfolio and a strong presence in the thriving office markets of Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, and the National Capital Region (NCR), Embassy REIT is committed to making a positive impact on society, benefiting over 55,000 individuals. Education initiatives and self-development programs are at the forefront of their efforts, empowering students in government schools by equipping them with essential skills for future employability. By fostering collaborative projects, Embassy actively engages clients, employees, and the government to pool resources and drive meaningful change, ensuring a brighter future for all.

In June 2023, the company partnered with the Department of Education, Maharashtra, to improve the infrastructure of the Zilla Parishad Primary School in Marunji. Vaishali Mansing Jadhav, the Headmistress of Zilla Parishad Primary School, expressed gratitude towards Embassy REIT for their support, stating, “This will go a long way in increasing enrollment and creating a safe and conducive learning environment. The initiative will enable underprivileged children to succeed academically and reach their full potential.”

Embassy’s commitment extends beyond infrastructure enhancement, as they also focus on empowering women through education. Through a partnership with the Lila Poonawala Foundation (LPF), they provide scholarships to academically outstanding and financially deserving female students to complete their four-year undergraduate degrees.

Recognizing the importance of holistic health, Embassy runs a comprehensive health and hygiene program across six government schools in Pune, benefiting over 5,900 students. Students receive preventive health kits containing essential items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, and sanitary napkins. Health and hygiene awareness workbooks in Marathi further contribute to their overall well-being.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which posed a significant threat to public health, Embassy REIT stepped up its efforts by donating ten vital oxygen concentrators, each with a capacity of 10 litres per minute, to the Paud Rural Hospital and Dedicated COVID Healthcare Centre in Paud District, Pune. The company also undertook several other welfare initiatives during this challenging period.

While these initiatives restore hope in a fast-paced world often consumed by self-interest, their success depends on volunteering and financial support. Corporate Connect plays a crucial role in facilitating connections between companies and potential sources of capital, enabling business expansion, research and development, and other growth initiatives.

Education, health, and environmental outreach initiatives are essential for a thriving society and often require external resources. As responsible citizens and organizations with the power to effect positive change, let’s connect and overcome barriers, ensuring a brighter future for all.
