HEALTHCARE & SCIENCE EMPLOYEES WIN COMMUNITY CHAMPION AWARDS: DEVASITHAM CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
What can U.S. $36,000 buy? Combined, that’s how much money this year’s Healthcare & Science Community Champions received for the non-profit groups to which they’ve dedicated their time.
Nine Healthcare & Science employees – or teams of employees – were named 2010 Thomson Reuters Community Champion winners for their outstanding community service. Over the next few weeks we’ll be profiling each of our winners – and the charities that will benefit even further because of their efforts.
Congratulations to Alfred Benjamin and the Devasitham Charitable Foundation. Alfred, manager, operations in Chennai, won one of the 2010 Community Champion Awards for his team’s work with the Devasitham Charitable Foundation.
In the rural areas of Tamil Nadu state in India, children from poor and underprivileged backgrounds are looking for a chance to break the cycle of poverty. The Devasitham Charitable Foundation does this by providing training in English language skills that will give the students wider choices and more opportunities when they go into the job market. Alfred Benjamin, manager – Operations for Healthcare & Science in Chennai, is a founder-member of the foundation. He says his motivation is simply watching these children grow in confidence and ability.
