Hyderabad: City-based Gland Pharma Limited has launched a free breakfast scheme for children in government schools, and is repairing classrooms and other infrastructure in TS schools.

Free breakfast scheme

The company provided funds to Akshaya Patra Foundation for a first-of-its-kind 'Free Breakfast' scheme for nearly 15,000 children in 80 government schools as well as about 500 pre-school children, pregnant women, and lactating mothers in 10 Anganwadi centres in Hyderabad and Vizag.

Developing infrastructure in govt schools

Gland Pharma has carried out extensive infrastructure development, and renovation works (additional classrooms, staff rooms, laboratories, dining halls, kitchens, stores, toilets, drinking water facilities, playgrounds, etc.) at nine government schools in Telangana.

Promoting quality education

The firm believes that a holistic approach is needed to address systemic gaps that prevent school children from marginalised backgrounds from pursuing experiential STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education. In association with Janyaa Foundation, Gland Pharma has implemented a 'Janyaa Lab-In-a-Box' (JLIB) programme in 11 Zilla Parishad High Schools in Telangana.

Supporting sexual abuse survivors

Gland Pharma is also constructing a 'Bharosa Centre' in Medak district for the Telangana police, to help provide integrated support under one roof to women and children affected by violence and sexual abuse.

The company also supports 'Swayamkrushi', a Hyderabad-based NGO that shelters mentally challenged women. It has funded the setting up of a dedicated 'Centre for Elderly Eye Care' at LV Prasad Eye Institute, Hyderabad.

Community cattle hostel

Gland Pharma contributed to a TS government's Community Cattle Hostel at Irkode village in Siddipet district to empower rural women and youth through integrated dairy facilities for about 160 cows pooled in from individual cattle owners of the village.

The firm has also contributed to Nehru Zoological Park in Hyderabad for the upkeep of numerous wild birds and animals.

Developing tribal communities

The firm provides funding to Vanavasi Kalyan Parishad, an NGO that strives to preserve tribal communities' identity by retaining their cultural moorings and age-old customs and traditions and aiding in their inclusive economic, health, and educational development.

Providing neonatal warming blankets

In August 2022, the firm provided 100 neonatal warming blankets to government hospitals in Andhra Pradesh to protect low birth-weight and premature infants from life-threatening hypothermia.
