CSR

When we define Eicher as a company committed to the community, we mean community in its broadest sense: the totality of the social, economic, and natural spheres in which we do business and live our lives.

This commitment takes many forms, with special attention to enhancing education and quality of healthcare facilities throughout the country.

Eicher’s commitment to the cause of education saw the birth of the Eicher Schools at different locations in the country. These schools are recognized co-educational, English medium schools, and are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education. The first school was built in the Alwar district of Rajasthan which is named as the Alwar Public School in 1976-77. Eicher followed this by opening its second school at Parwanoo, Himachal Pradesh, in 1993. A year later in 1994, the Eicher School at Faridabad, Haryana, was inaugurated.

In its aim to reach the remote interiors of the Indian subcontinent and provide education to the children in these rural areas, Eicher setup a foundation, which would work on, as its focus, interventions for improvement in quality of education, initially in the government primary schools in rural areas. Setup in 1996, this foundation is named as the Goodearth Education Foundation (GEF).

In the field of healthcare, Eicher’s contribution took the form of management and funding of the Dr. Shroff Charitable Eye Hospital, located in Delhi. Eicher has been managing the operations of this hospital since the year 1996. Located in the heart of Delhi, this hospital is a non-commercial, non-profit trust setup to enable people from all walks of life and all sections of society to receive quality eye care.

  • Vision: “To have a major impact on blindness and deafness eradication in India, especially among poor, by building an accessible, self-sufficient model institution, that has internationally approved performance standards and is focussed on quality, excellence and patient-care”

    Founded in 1926, Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye hospital is a non-commercial, non-profit trust setup to enable people from all walks of life and all sections of society to receive quality eye care. SCEH has a strong 75-year old tradition of eye care, and more recently, ear, nose and throat care. It has been known for both, its high quality as well as the compassionate treatment it has offered its patients.

    The Eicher group started providing substantial assistance to this hospital in 1996 and started to support this institution with funds and expertise. And gradually this hospital has started to emerge as one of the finest ophthalmic and ENT hospitals in Delhi owing to its international standards and adherence to hygiene and quality.

    SCEH’s long term goal is to provide care approaching that of international standards for all patients, while at the same time increasing the number of poor people treated at minimal or no cost – becoming a true centre of excellence. SCEH is now following a combination of the very successful models used by the three outstanding Indian eye hospitals with international quality standards – L.V Prasad Eye Institute in Hyderabad, Sankara Nethralaya in Chennai, and Arvind Eye Hospitals in Madurai. During recent years, SCEH has expanded its services. These include:

    • A new Vision Enhancement Centre, which provides vision-enhancing devices and advice to those who are severely visually impaired or blind and for whom little more can be done surgically or medically.
    • A School Screening Programme in which teachers in schools are given the necessary training so as to identify the students who are having some visual impairment. These students are treated in SCEH and return to school with improved capacities.
    • An aggressive Outreach Programme which connects people who are financially needy, living in relatively distant or less accessible locations, and who are also poorly informed about what can be done about their unnecessary blindness. The main outreach is its satellite clinic in Alwar, Rajasthan. It has also introduced high quality educational conferences, a Quality Assurance Programme, and an intensive medical and patient focused skills enhancement agenda. Over the years, SCEH has made tremendous strides towards excellence and is currently expanding and upgrading its services and reach.
