Xento Tree Plantation 2017 - Go Green

As the monsoon sets in, Xento’s CSR organizes its annual tree plantation drive at Loni Kalbhor, on the 1st & 22nd of July 2017. Along with the Maharashtra forest department, who are celebrating an entire week of tree plantation in the State, Xentians plant over 9500 saplings on this barren land.

Being a fulfilling and enriching experience amidst nature, a lot of families and friends also joined in. The drive began at 7.30 in the morning and went on till 7 PM! We had over 150 participants on both days who joined the initiative. The volunteers also enjoyed some hot-hot vada-pav’s and fresh sandwiches from our live station put up!

Different saplings including neem, babul and imli were planted. The land identified by the forest department itself was a vast expense with no vegetation at all. With the help of this activity, this area will definitely benefit by recharging the groundwater level, prevent erosion and improve soil conditions. continue

Career guidance workshop for visually challenged individuals

Career Guidance Workshop

As the college admission season begins shortly, Xento Systems Pune, in association with National Association for Blind Satara, organized a “Career guidance workshop for visually challenged individuals” on Saturday, 20th May 2017. This event aimed to spread awareness about the different career paths that blind students can choose. The workshop was attended by over 40 visually challenged individuals, in the age group of 15 to 35 years.

Visually challenged students, especially in remote areas, have very poor access to good quality education. Even with the RTE Act and reservation quota, they may get admission in a nearby college, but do not truly receive knowledge the way sighted individuals do. Colleges and universities lack proper study material in the form of braille or audio books, as is required by them. Their computer labs are not equipped with required softwares such as screen reading software, which assist a blind student to use computers today. It is definitely difficult for a blind student to cope with the syllabus at the pace that it is taught and they may require extra classes, but there are no coaching classes available for them. continue
