Ingersoll Rand and Toybank visit children from Parivartan Shikshan Sanstha

Corporates all over India encouraged their employees to donate, contribute and give during the JOG week. And Ingersoll Rand is one of those corporates who organized a toy collection drive for Toybank.

These toys are being wrapped this week by Toybankers at the toy storage space offered by our generous donor - Kaymo. And the toys will be distributed to 100 children from Parivartan Shikshan Sanstha on 23rd of Oct by employee volunteers from Ingersoll Rand. 

Parivartan was set up in 1997 by Shakil Ahmed and is currently running two centres within the Sangam Nagar Wadala slums, providing non-formal education to children who do not attend school due to issues that surround social, political and gender discrimination.

Mahalaxmi, Mumbai
