Today, it marks a new milestone with the 4th anniversary of the adoption of Maharaja Katte Village at Kanakapura Taluk, Canon India informed.

Adopted in 2014, Canon India focused on the development of over 1300 villagers, with a special focus on the all-inclusive development of children in the village school. 

In the past 4 years, Maharaja Katte Village has witnessed noticeable developments through implementation of a wide range of activities, under its four core areas, including Education, Eye Care, Environment and Empowerment.

In terms of infrastructure, It has made significant changes in the village, keeping in mind the ease and convenience for villagers. Along with constructing additional classrooms and maintaining separate toilets for boys and girls, a stage has also been raised in the school to provide a platform for children to exhibit their talent and gain confidence. With health of the villagers as a key concern for Canon, a water purifier has been installed, providing them access to clean and safe drinking water.
