The spirit of volunteering is the integral part of the Tata ethos. They are valued as individuals who bring a unique contribution to the group with whom they work. Volunteers work for no reward other than their own development and of their community.

TCSRD has established systems and processes to provide for volunteering opportunities. These opportunities are through TCL’s employee volunteering program- Hope (Harnessing Opportunities for People’s Empowerment), or through summer and short term projects for college students, interns & trainees.

HOPE has a database of volunteers spanning the organizational hierarchy, from senior management to contract employees. Family members of the employees, too, find time regularly for volunteering in various TCSRD programs. The work they do is recognized and rewarded at various company functions. The volunteers, bring in their talent, skills and interest to improve the quality of life of the people they serve.

Benefits of volunteering:

  • volunteers grow and learn from their interaction with the community;
  • volunteering projects helps the community
  • The goodwill that is created helps the company and builds enduring relationship with the community.

Volunteers contributed in various programs organized by TCSRD like medical camps, eye camps, life line express medical camps etc. Other volunteer programs include participation in facilitating self-help groups, training programs such as Tejaswini, rural enterprise development, animal husbandry camps to name a few.

Apart from the TCL employees and their family members, the group of students from management institutes was also involved in volunteering. They helped in taking forward the rural development program run by TCSRD. Some of the experiences are mentioned in the links below:

Experience sharing by TCL Volunteers

Volunteering program by the TCL, Haldia branch

TCSRD under the banner of HOPE organized a drawing competition cum cultural program for the orphan children of Gandhi Ashram. 81 children participated in the drawing competition. The drawing material for the program was sponsored by the employees of Tata Chemicals Ltd (Haldia) and employees of Bishop House (Kolkata).

The program was a great success as around 15 employees volunteered for the program. They helped in bringing smiles on the face of a hundred of children of the ashram.

Volunteer Ms. Mamta Akula’s experience

Ms. Mamta Akula is a new but enthusiastic volunteer, working as officer - HR in Tata Chemicals Limited, Mumbai. She is associated with Tata Chemicals Society for Rural Development through "HOPE initiative" since last one year. She has whole heartedly participated in various projects like awareness sessions with the underprivileged children, on health, environment and hygiene awareness programs. As a team they came out with very innovative and interesting ways of communicating the messages to the kids, through skits, play, joker show, puppet show, drawing competition etc.

She feels “seeing the smile on the face of the children gives her immense happiness". During one of the awareness sessions with the kids she actually relived her Bachpan (childhood) once again. She feels that she has gained more than what she has given and would love to participate more actively in these activities.
