Jabil Pune Empowers Local Learning Disability Students
After competing in our internal continuous improvement competition, a team from Pune was given the chance to support an organization in their community. Jabil Pune is no stranger to community outreach activities, and after conducting some research, the team decided to support a local non-profit school for children, ages 4 to 12, with hearing and learning disabilities.
The Pune employees engaged with over 50 children through various activities aligned with some of Jabil’s core values: Education and Empowerment. Students and Jabil employees spent the day together playing games, including cricket, badminton and volleyball. Jabil employees also took time to educate the students on the importance of health and wellness and what they can do to stay healthy and prevent illness.
Jabil employees were proud to provide the children with uniforms, nutritional supplements and personal hygiene items, along with donated sporting goods to promote physical wellness at the school.
Senior Lean Coach Rahul Deshpande, who attended the 2018 Deliver Best Practices Global Finals as a traveling ambassador, was thrilled about the difference he and his team would be able to make in the lives of these children.
“We want to empower these students to be proud of who they are and be able to enjoy one another through team activities, and also make sure that they are healthy and have the support they need,” says Rahul. “Our employees appreciate participating in volunteer activities; they love to make a difference in our community.”
The 10th Anniversary of the Deliver Best Practices Competition celebrated the 'good' Jabil sites are doing in our local communities around the world. Thirty-two finalist teams received funds to support Jabil Cares initiatives in their local communities. Jabil Cares, our community outreach and volunteerism platform, supports localized efforts around specific causes related to Jabil's three main pillars: Education, Empowerment and the Environment.
