Essar Foundation, Hazira, facilitated the participation of 17 students from Hazira Primary School, in a science exhibition, organized by the State Government of Gujarat on September 14, 2011, at Puna village, Surat, about 70 km from Hazira village. Essar provided support and transportation for the group.
The State Department of Education, in an effort to promote a scientific outlook and interest in science among children, organizes this annual science exhibition in every district of the State.
It was indeed a novel exposure for the village students as they could interact with and share a platform with over 100 schools of Surat District.
The Essar Foundation – which guides the corporate responsibility activities of all Essar companies – seeks to positively impact the lives of all who come in contact with the company's operations.
