NEW DELHI: The number one India brand offering high quality and aesthetically-appealing bathroom solutionsin sanitary ware, Parryware, has announced its plans to build toilets in 25 schools across the country.
The initiative is a part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) plan and is inspired by the Prime Minister’s ‘Swach Bharat Programme’ that emphasises on the need for better sanitary conditions in the nation with a special focus on toilets in schools.
Parryware will be targetting schools in cities like Coimbatore, Indore, Erode, Bhiwadi, Sriperumbudur, Pantnagar, Alwar andRanipet as a part of the initiative. Wherever applicable, it will be constructing separate toilets for girls, providing greater comfort and incentive to girls to continue their education. Parryware had earlier announced the launch of a new low-cost Indian-style toilet Pan which would suit the requirement of the ‘Swach Bharat Programme’.
Pau Abello, Managing Director, Roca Bathroom Products Private Limited, said, “The Prime Minister’s vision of providing sound sanitary conditions to each citizen of the country is laudable. Fortunately, we at Parryware, as India’s frontrunners in bathroom solutions are in an ideal position to contribute meaningfully to this dream project. We will be using our CSR funds towards building toilets across schools and hopefully restoring the dignity of students so that they don’t have to resort to open defecation.”
He further stated “CSR is also in the DNA of Parryware’s parent company, Roca, to provide better sanitation and water access to Indian people. This is also done with Roca NGO, We Are Water, which is carrying out and financing projects in India since many years ago.”
In India, only 40% of the total population has access to toilets. During his Independence Day speech, PM NarendraModi outlined his vision of all schools having separate toilets for boys and girls within a year. He had also appealed to the corporate sector to build toilets in schools as a part oftheir Corporate Social Responsibility. Parryware’s endeavour is a step in fulfilling this vision and providing sound sanitation facilities to students in the country.
