Reconnecting with Roots
Reconnecting with Roots is an initiative which gives employees an opportunity to create a social capital by proposing projects that will be supported under CSR. To make a difference within their local village or community this initiative encourages employees to recommend any development project within their sphere of influence.
Since the launch of the Reconnecting with Roots initiative under CSR, we have been gaining momentum and received 11 employee recommended projects across PAN India. We are excited to share that we have so far implemented projects in Telangana and Odisha, by serving the needs of children studying in Government schools.

Our employees take immense pride in leading projects that benefit the community at large through our unique CSR initiative – Reconnecting with Roots. Through this project our employee located in Karnataka recommended to support a water purifier at a Government school in Bannikuppe. Our support is giving access to pure and clean water to 140 students after several years as the school only used borewell water so far. It was a joyous moment for the school to receive this support. The inaugural ceremony was organized by our local Signode team in association with the Government school, in Bannikuppe on 20th December 2023 and the handover of the water purifier was done to the school. The project was led by C.M. Nagesh and M.T. Mahesh based at our Wintek plant.
