CapitaLand builds first Hope School in India for INR 45 million

Distributes 5,000 care kits to children across five cities in India as part of 'CapitaLand #GivingAsOne' campaign
BANGALORE, India - Oct. 4, 2021 - PRLog -- CapitaLand Group through its philanthropic arm CapitaLand Hope Foundation (CHF), has launched its first CapitaLand Hope School in India, contributing INR 45 million to provide over 400 primary school children from low-income families with access to education.  Located in Mahadevapura, Bangalore, about 6 km from CapitaLand's International Tech Park Bangalore (ITPB), the 18,000 sq ft Government Hi-Tech Kannada and English Medium Higher Primary School has eight classrooms, a staff room, a multi-purpose room, a playground, as well as assembly and dining areas.  This is the 30th CapitaLand Hope School aimed at providing children with a better start in life through education.

Mr Vinamra Srivastava, CEO, India Business Parks, CapitaLand Investment[1], said: "Our first CapitaLand Hope School in India is part of our ongoing corporate responsibility efforts to support the educational needs and well-being of children from the community.  Our efforts over the last 10 years include providing school necessities to children under My Schoolbag programme[2], as well as leveraging our expertise to build and refurbish government schools.  More recently, we supported India's COVID-19 relief efforts, committing about INR 197 million.  We plan to build two more CapitaLand Hope Schools in Bangalore and Pune.  I would like to thank Karnataka Education Department for their support, and our staff for their contribution to build our first CapitaLand Hope School.  As we grow our business here, we will continue to give back to the community."
