CSR Activities

Even before eNyota Learning was started off, the founders have always wanted it to be something more than just a business and actually give back to the community as a CSR activity where we operate. But the pains of doing business and starting off in 2007, when the global recession hit, put a lot of our good intentions on the back burner. To be honest, we could have done more over the years, but the need to grow our business always dominated our mind-space, and often made community service a second priority. And we were always conscious of this. Beyond just the organization, we have tried to bring a culture of giving and sharing within our team members as well, and we have been extremely happy that a lot of them share that enthusiasm. The management and a lot of team members within the organization have been doing their bit on their own initiative over the years
in their personal capacity.

In 2014, eNyota Learning formulated a plan to institutionalize our responsibility as a corporate citizen of our country and the world. We plan to consolidate the good intentions and efforts of all team members at eNyota to be able to make a meaningful impact. These are some of the activities we have started off with.
