Pune, February 12, 2023 – In a commendable journey that began in 2014, Mahindra Truck and Bus Division, a key player under the Mahindra Group umbrella, has once again demonstrated its dedication to fostering educational opportunities for girls from the trucking community. Celebrating an impressive landmark, the Mahindra Saarthi Abhiyaan Scholarships have now empowered 10,000 truck drivers’ daughters, steering them towards the road of higher education.
In an event filled with hope and aspirations in Namakkal, Tamilnadu, scholarships, each worth Rs. 10,000, were directly transferred into the bank accounts of these deserving young women. This initiative shines a spotlight on those who have successfully completed the 10th standard and are gearing up for further studies in the fiscal year 2023-24. The scholarship program, known for its extensive reach, has navigated through more than 75 transport hubs across India, ensuring a well-structured, transparent, and impartial selection process.
Jalaj Gupta, the driving force behind Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd.’s Commercial Vehicles sector, shared his thoughts on this landmark achievement. “Leading the charge in community empowerment and generating a lasting social impact has always been our mantra. Mahindra Saarthi Abhiyaan stands as a testament to our relentless pursuit of making a difference, reaching the farthest corners of the nation to light up the lives of young girls with dreams of academic success. This initiative is our salute to the truck driving community, acknowledging their hard work in prioritizing education for their daughters,” he expressed.
The Mahindra Saarthi Abhiyaan Scholarships not only underscore Mahindra’s ongoing commitment to the trucker community but also pave a smoother path for young women aspiring for a brighter future through education.
