Sharing knowledge, building self-respect

HDFC Standard Life Insurance employees promote self-respect for Indian children

'Swabhimaan', translated as self-respect, is a CSR project launched by the Indian company HDFC Standard Life Insurance and SOS Children’s Villages India to promote education and holistic development for children throughout the country.

In the partnership’s first year alone, 300 HDFC Life employees enthusiastically led 32 activities for SOS children and young people, ranging from a financial literacy workshop to tree planting. Long-term, the Swabhimaan project will provide financial support for the complete school expenses of 300 children in 4 locations in India. Active skill sharing with the HDFC employees makes Swabhimaan a mutually beneficial partnership that is resulting in wide educational possibilities and positive impacts in children’s lives.
