As part of a large-scale volunteering effort to provide clean lakes and beaches to communities, over 150 employees from Hinduja Global Solutions’ (HGS) Chennai centre recently volunteered with the NGO – Environmentalist Foundation of India (EFI).
The NGO is involved in animal habitat conservation and rejuvenation of water bodies, among other causes.
The Ashtalakshmi Temple beach in Chennai witnessed 150 HGS volunteers strive towards a cleaner sandy stretch.
The beach is not only a tourist attraction, but also one of the major breeding grounds for the Olive Ridley turtles. The clean-up drive will help in conserving the nesting grounds of these rare creatures while providing a serene experience to the beach-goers.
Ahead of the World Environment day on June 5, 2019, HGS volunteers are taking up lake and beach clean-up drives at multiple locations in Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai and Chennai.
This volunteering event marks one of HGS’ many on-going volunteering initiatives. As part of its many social outreach priorities, HGS continues to work in the area of water conservation, rehabilitation and delivery through its corporate sponsorship and large-scale volunteering programs.
