TUBACEX Group Collaborates With UNICEF to Promote Access to Quality Education and WASH in Schools in India

MUMBAI, May 19, 2017/PRNewswire/ -

TUBACEX Group has signed a collaboration agreement with the UNICEF Spanish Committee to promote Education and access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in the schools covering 5 blocks of Palghar district, Maharashtra in India. This agreement is framed within the initiatives of the TUBACEX Foundation and will have a three-year term.

The main purpose of the program is to create an environment that promotes learning by means of the improvement of educational facilities and school structures, while enabling the professional development of the teachers. The WASH (Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Education) program, which is fully-aligned with the lines of action of UNICEF and the 'Clean School Clean India' campaign, is promoted by the Indian Government. The program will focus on Palghar district in Maharashtra, located 50 km away from the TUBACEX India production plant.

While commenting about this program, Ajay Sambrani - MD of Tubacex India Pvt Ltd said, "With this program we seek to support one of the most vulnerable people groups - Children, by adding our efforts to further their universal right to education with participative formulas promoted amongst our stakeholders, which the group will implement in all the countries where we are present."

Rajeshwari Chandrashekar, Chief of UNICEF office in Maharashtra said, "Having allies such as TUBACEX Group will allow us to advance our mission to protect one of the essential rights like Quality Education and access to improved water, sanitation and hygiene facilities in the rural district schools. With this alliance, we will offer a fairer and more equitable future to thousands of tribal boys and girls in India."

This action is framed within the working areas of TUBACEX Foundation, set up at the beginning of the year in order to channel the different social initiatives that the company has promoted historically. With its growth and international expansion, the WASH program at Indian schools has become the first social action initiative developed as a Group; the people who form part of TUBACEX are the greatest pillars for its success.

The company will implement participative formulas that will allow them to join forces in favor of the improvement of educational facilities and infrastructures in Palghar, with voluntary donations and the participation in internal corporate volunteer programs.
