Recently a team of Signify employees from our Chennai Warehouse and Office in India undertook a very special project to illuminate a rural residential school for underprivileged children located in Thiruvallur, Tamil Nadu under our CSR volunteering program – Signify Light up a Smile.
Dr. Ambedkar Ashram School is a two-storey primary residential school, located in Thiruvallur, Tamil Nadu, approximately 80 kms from Chennai City. This school was started in 1998 with a vision to provide better education to students from scheduled tribes. Now this school is home to 65 young and bright students from marginalized backgrounds, with majority of them belonging to the “Irulas Tribe”, who earn their living by catching snakes and rats.
