Parryware initiates CSR drive to build toilets in 25 schools

Parryware has announced its plans to build toilets in 25 schools across the country. The initiative is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) plan and is inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Swach Bharat Programme’ that emphasises on the need for better sanitary conditions in the nation with a special focus on toilets in schools.

Parryware will be targeting schools in cities such as Coimbatore, Indore, Erode, Bhiwadi, Sriperumbudur, Pantnagar, Alwar and Ranipet as part of the initiative. Wherever applicable, it will be constructing separate toilets for girls. Parryware had earlier announced the launch of a new low-cost Indian-style toilet, Pan, which would suit the requirement of the ‘Swach Bharat Programme’.

Pau Abello, Managing Director, Roca Bathroom Products said, “The Prime Minister’s vision of providing sound sanitary conditions to each citizen of the country is laudable. Fortunately, we at Parryware, as India’s frontrunners in bathroom solutions are in an ideal position to contribute meaningfully to this dream project. We will be using our CSR funds towards building toilets across schools and hopefully restoring the dignity of students so that they don’t have to resort to open defecation.”

He further said, “CSR is also in the DNA of Parryware’s parent company, Roca, to provide better sanitation and water access to Indian people. This is also done with Roca NGO, We Are Water, which is carrying out and financing projects in India since many years ago.”

As per industry statistics, in India, only 40 per cent of the total population has access to toilets. During his Independence Day speech, Prime Minister Modi had outlined his vision of all schools having separate toilets for boys and girls within a year. He had also appealed to the corporate sector to build toilets in schools as a part of their Corporate Social Responsibility.
