Tata Power, India's largest integrated power utility, has always been committed to serve the society and contribute towards a progressive development of the local communities. Tata Power organised various initiatives under the 10th Tata Volunteering Week (TVW) in Haldia to uplift the livelihood of the community members.

The objective of this month long initiative is to encourage employees to engage with the local communities and contribute to their welfare. The 10th edition of this initiative primarily focused on three themes a) Safety & Women Empowerment b) Importance of education c) Environmental Issues based on which they conducted workshops and sessions. The initiative witnessed an overwhelming participation of Tata Power employees and senior leaders. Tata Power employees registered through ARPAN – a volunteering portal that helped them to participate in the event.

Talking about the initiative, Mr. Abhijit Ain Das, Chief, Haldia Station said, “Development of our environment, community and stakeholders is of prime importance to us. Tata Power’s Haldia division has always encouragedits employees to participate in initiatives that empower communities. The hard work put in by the employees is commendable and we are glad to be able to contribute to the welfare of the community during the 10th Tata Volunteering Week.”

From conducting motivational sessions for Self Help Groups (SHGs) to sensitizing the community members & students on safety related issues, the Haldia division employees undertook programmes to promote personal hygiene, road/home/electrical safety etc. and encouraged them to take up entrepreneurial initiatives and become self-reliant. The sessions also focused on raising awareness on the importance of education and the growing environmental concerns. Interactive sessions with parents on the importance of education were conducted and plantation drives were organized inside and outside of the plant premises to encourage communities to contribute to the efforts of Tata Power in building a sustainable future.
