Pai International donates notebooks to 12,226 Students

As part of its 16th year of education-focused CSR initiatives, Pai International, South India’s largest retailer of electronics and consumer appliances, gave 1.1 lakh notebooks to 12,226 Tumkur schoolchildren. In Tumkur, India, on July 4, 2022, Mr. Rajkumar Pai (MD), Meena R Pai (FD), Guruprasad Pai (Director), Pushpa Pai (Director), Jayaashree. S (Director), and more than 91 other important management team and employees gathered and interacted with these students in front of more than 15 schools and their representatives. 
 
This initiative has provided schools and students with appropriate and timely resources during these difficult times that have impacted the economy and many companies. 
 
In 2005, Mr. Rajkumar started the book distribution programme in Siddaganga Mutt as part of its mission-driven vision. As the brand’s retail network has developed over the years, the activity has only gotten bigger and bigger. With this programme, Pai hopes to empower 1 lakh students, and so far, we have successfully offered this service to 22,500 students in all of the cities where we do business.

Mr. Rajkumar Pai, the founder and MD of Pai International, is the leader of this admirable effort. “At Pai International, we are devoted to offering accessible learning to support and further education for 15 years now, distributing books across Tumkur, Mysore, Udupi, Mangalore, and Kerala,” he added when discussing this effort. We are beyond honoured to support the academic endeavours of so many deserving and aspirational students who require access to tools and resources, particularly in this era of online programmes. As the educational system is expected to undergo technological changes soon, we hope to expand this project in the upcoming years.
