Vanvasipada, Sawa and Ubhidon in Vikramgad Taluka (sub division). Situated near Dhamni Dam, these areas are still deprived of electricity and basic infrastructure even after seven decades of India’s independence. ASM has thus taken this responsibility to bring about a positive change in these villages. They will provide educational requirements like school bags, uniforms/clothes, footwear, necessary stationary, and raincoats to the lucky children.

Commenting on this activity, Amit Singh, Founder & CEO, AllSuperMart said, “Education is a basic human right and should be made accessible for everyone. Sadly, in our country, the less fortunate ones rarely get to exercise this right either for themselves or for their children. Therefore, with this CSR activity, AllSuperMart hopes to fulfil the beautiful dreams of these children and help them realize their maximumpotential without any hurdles or struggle on their path to success.”

Through this activity ASM will donate two months of its profit for the cause of social betterment. Along with aforementioned educational requirements, it will also provide meritorious students with scholarships (including Tuition Fees, Hostel expense, and Overall cost of education) to fund their higher education, instilling in them a belief that anything is possible.

AllSuperMart was incorporated on 27 October, 2015 in a bid to create an organized ecosystem for local shop vendors to sell their products and services online. Headquartered in Mumbai, the company aims to develop an easier approach to utility and grocery shopping for consumers. AllSuperMart customers will be able to buy their groceries and various other products online like Kitchenware and Electronics, from their trusted local vendors. It will provide the consumers with better shopping experience through local vendors on a virtual platform.
