Sharekhan: Making A Difference Quietly


Students of Isha Vidya Matriculation School are happy to pose with their brand new bus and directors of Sharekhan

In a remote hamlet near a village named Vadivelampalayam, bright little Nandhini would often dream of going to school to learn about the bigger world outside. But her father Ganeshamoorthy, an agricultural labourer, was not able to fulfill her dream because the nearest school was about 12.5km away and there was no direct transport from their locality to the school. With a sense of regret and tearful eyes, Nandhini would watch the older children take an overcrowded state government bus (the only one to the city) to go to school every day.

Then, one day, a miracle happened. Nandhini ran up to her father and described to him how a bus had come all the way to the hamlet to pick up the school's students. On making enquiries her father learnt that the school had indeed started a bus service for the students in the area! Nandhini's dream was about to come true. Her father enrolled her at the school and today Nandhini, a student of Lower Kindergarten, travels to school safely and dares to dream of a better life.

Not many know that Sharekhan is the reason why Nandhini and many other children residing within a radius of about 25km of Isha Vidhya Matriculation School in Sandegoundenpalayam village of Coimbatore can now look forward to a brighter future. Social responsibility has always been at the core of Sharekhan's business model, and the company quietly funded the purchase of three new SML S7 buses for the school.
