Engro Foods is committed to serve the communities we operate in. We started a school adoption program near our production facilities to provide the opportunity of education to the children from under privileged backgrounds in the surrounding communities who had no access to education. To reduce inequality and create a better future and opportunities for the children, Engro Foods started supporting six schools near our production facilities (2 near Nara Farm in Sindh and 4 schools near Sahiwal plant), which are empowering 1,700+ students to date; from farmer & surrounding communities.
Over the years, Engro Foods has developed strong partnerships with organizations such as The Citizens Foundation, Indus Resource Center and Care Foundation for supporting efforts to both raise standards of and make education more widely available, which is in line with three of the UN Sustainable Development Goals: provide quality education, reduce inequalities and create partnerships for the goals.
School Adoption program is running in different geographies where Engro Foods businesses operate. This includes areas in, Sukkur and Sahiwal districts, in Sahiwal we adopted government schools. Our employees conduct periodic community engagements sessions at these schools on the importance of environment, safe nutrition, cleanliness, health and safety to keep a close connect and address concerns of surrounding communities.
