MAHINDRA SAARTHI ABHIYAAN
Staying true to its philosophy of 'RISE', Mahindra Truck and Bus has introduced Saarthi Abhiyaan to turn the spotlight on the Indian truck driver community. This unique CSR project not only supports truck drivers but their families too. The first phase of Saarthi Abhiyaan was launched with a popular and heart-warming scholarship programme for the daughters of truck drivers. Scholarships worth Rs. 10,000 were awarded to meritorious applicants who completed 10th standard and are pursuing further education. This initiative was our way to salute all those truck drivers who educated their daughters despite the odds. But this is just a beginning. With Saarthi Abhiyaan we'll continue this journey to show truck drivers that we care.
